Last night, Dorset CCC met for our March meeting near Wimborne. We had an excellent turnout – over 20 ladies came along from all over the county. This month’s theme was ‘Cooking the books’ to celebrate the launch of the CCC cookery book, and theme was to bake a cake from your favourite cookery book or the CCC book and then to bring the books along too to have a look.
We had several cakes from the CCC book, as well as favourite books written by Mary Berry and Fiona Cairns amongst others. We had so much cake to get through, we all started flagging after two or three slices! Many members have purchased the CCC book and the feedback has been wonderful to hear. You’ll see below some of the cakes from the book which our bakers made.
We had a really wide range of cakes on the night, which included:
St Paddy’s Day Guinness Cake baked by Gina
Lemon drizzle cake, made by Janine
