Well last month we had a fantastic warm welcome from Waterstones Newcastle for our event ‘The Definition of cake’. Could there be anything better than being able to eat cake and drink tea & coffee surrounded by cook books? We were really lucky to be able to take over the cafe space on the first floor with our delicious bakes, and huge thanks go out to all the staff that helped us that evening.
Hannah baked a savoury courgette and basil cake, Faye baked a CAKE (chocolate, amaretto, kahlua and expresso cake), Kate baked a 3 tier ice cream cake, Lauren baked a Ugandan peanut cake, Charlotte baked a victoria sponge cake, Philippa baked a giant jaffa cake, Rich baked a multi layer cake (chocolate & guinness, ginger, coffee, carrot, lemon and vanilla layers), and finally Iona baked a tiffin cake.
We were all amazed at Kate’s ability to create an icecream cake and transport it to CCC, and also to Rich for his fantastic multi-layered cake on his first visit to Newcastle CCC! It’s not all about the size but we couldn’t help but applaud.
The cakes all tasted amazing and I really appreciated the effort people went to to try and challenge or define what a cake is. I for one will definitely be going for a savoury cake now and then.
Until next time I’ll sign off with this shot of cake layers, because why wouldn’t I? See you next time!
