On Monday night I went to my first Clandestine Cake Club event and it was such a fun evening! I first came across the Clandestine cake club when I attended the cake and bake show back in September. I thought it was a fantastic idea and couldn’t wait to attend one. The Club was founded in the summer of 2010 by Lynn Hill who thought there needed to be more events out there which involve a chance to meet and talk with others and eat cake! The club has proved to be a great success and what started as one club has now led to over a hundred clubs being formed.
To take part in a cake club event you need to register on their website http://clandestinecakeclub.co.uk/ and then can look and see what club is in your area or if there isn’t one you can set one up! The idea is that each individual must bake a cake and bring it to the event so that everyone can meet, mingle and share a slice of each other’s delicious cakes. The events are held monthly and each event is held in a different venue and has a different theme. In light of over indulging over the festive period, the theme for January’s Cake club was Scrumptious Savories’. I had never made a savoury cake before and it took me a while to find a cake that I fancied making. When it comes to sweet cake I spend far too long deciding which one I want to make because I have too much choice but for savoury cakes I was a little stuck. I thought of a sweet potato pie but as it’s a cake club, rules are you can only make cakes, no muffins, no pies, just cakes.
