Durham Dales: Working 9 – 5-what a way to make a livin’

It wasn’t long after our December Homley Christmas event that Durham Dales CCC recieved a phone call from Teesdale Mercury asking if they could run an article on us.

How could we refuse?!

So I hurriedly found a venue and decided upon a theme

Oh one thing I may have forgot was bakers -oops!

I stuck the event on the CCC website and waited- it was last minute- just a few days notice.

I was inspired for a moment and decided to ask the people in the venue if they would bake- they loved the idea and did not disappoint

We met in Bede House in Newton Aycliffe a multi-use rented office space (which I happen to work in)

ready for cake

It was an after work event on a very snowy cold evening and although the radio was telling us roads were terrible all the businesses stayed behind for this cake club event.

We had four wonderful cakes

* A beautiful Lemon cake filled with lemon curd

* A coffee clock cake

*An Earl grey cake with Earl Grey icing

*Cinnamon and Drunken Fruit

A week later we were in the Teesdale Mercury with a wonderful newspaper report and a great pic of everyone there!
