Here’s a two in one special! June and July were both very enjoyable events. June had the theme of ‘Something Old, Something New, Something Borrowed, Something Blue’. This either inspired people to include everything, in the theme, in their cake or completely confused about what to bake! We will try to keep the themes more […]

The Norwich Clandestine Cake Club decided to heat things up with Sugar and Spice cakes. There was some sugar, some spice but all cakes were nice. Better than nice, they were delicious.

Bundt Club

In February I handed over the reins of my beloved Bolton club to my cake compadres, Claire and Clare (who are doing a fantastic job might I add). Since then I’ve still been baking bundts, and I’ve enjoyed answering people’s questions on Twitter. These cakey discussions led to the virtual bundt club being set up […]

Rumplestilskin Caramel Cake
