On Saturday I attended my first Clandestine Cake Club. In essence: a bunch of strangers bake a cake and then turn up somewhere to eat lots of cake, chat to people and drink tea. I think we can all agree that this is my kind of shindig!
This idea was the brainchild of Lynn Hill, she of my Secret Tearoom Adventure last year. And, again, I had a great time. I hope to see some of the ladies I met there again as I shall certainly be going to another CCC event very soon.
If there is one in your area I urge you to give it a go. Especially if, like me, you’re looking to expand your social circle, or just eat loads of cake! Everyone is there for the same reasons so you’ll never find youself hiding in a corner and the conversation can easily be kicked off with “So, which is your cake?” like nervous parents at the ballpool!
For reference, mine was the Blueberry Cake in the bottom coner there. Chosen for a. deliciousness, and b. ease of transport in a car. Let me just tell you from bitter experience that roundabaouts and layer cakes rarely end well!
