Last night, the Dorset CCC branch had a brilliant July meeting. Despite the heavy rain, flooding and road closures, we had a great turnout and what’s more, some even more fantastic cakes! People travelled from far and wide to be there, battling traffic jams and adverse weather conditions to arrive cakes in hand.
Having tried a recipe for the first time yesterday to take along, I was really nervous it would not work out. That’s the danger with making large cakes – you can’t get away with sneaking a little slice to check it takes ok! I was relieved to find that I wasn’t the only one who has tried something different on the night though.
We had a lovely selection of cakes – all of which were absolutely delicious. I kept the theme relatively simple – summer fruits – and our Dorset cake bakers used a wonderful array of summer fruits in their cakes; berries, currants, oranges, rhubarb and peaches. Here are a some of the lovely cakes we enjoyed:
Thank you to everyone who came along. I’m looking forward to the next event already.
Thank you to LB Bistro who hosted our event so well last night.
