Clandestine Cake Club

The weekend before last I was lucky to be able to participate in the February meeting of the Clandestine Cake Club. Due to the original venue falling through Lynn very graciously hosted us at her Secret Tearoom and kept us all supplied with copious amounts of tea. Steadily over the space of an hour gorgeous cake after cake arrived until we could dive in and sample them.

Clandestine Cake 1

L to R Kentish Chocolate Cake - me, Lemon Meringue Cake - Helen, Beetroot & Spiced Apple - Mike, Rose Vanilla Cake - Clair

The theme for the afternoon was 'Sweet Valentine' which we all interpreted in different ways although chocolate cake proved to be popular.


Chocolate-Cakes--Feb

top to bottom: Chocolate & Ginger Cake - Lucy, Chocolate and Raspberry Cake - Stephanie, Chocolate, Honeycomb and Truffle Cake


Eleanors-&-Lynns

Blueberry Cake - Eleanor, Lemon & Lime Cake - Lynn

Georginas birthday cake

Georgina's Almond and Cherry Birthday Cake

The cakes were delicious, by dint of taking samples home with me afterwards I got to taste everything bar the Rose and Vanilla Cake - as soon as Rosie saw the pink icing I didn't get a look in on that one. And given the speed it vanished it must have been good!
