Newcastle – Come rain or shine it’s picnic time!

June 5, 2015 7:33 pm in Newcastle Upon Tyne by Iona

Well ok I admit it, it was more rain than shine down on the Quayside last Monday as you can see from the picture below but we perserved with out indoor picnic none the less! The Cycle Hub down at the bottom of the Ouseburn Valley played host and allowed us to peek at the view through their windows on the Tyne whilst the rain poured down!

8 cakes in all graced the table and I was really excited to see some inspired savoury lookalikes in the form of a sandwich (from Lizzie) and a sausage roll (from Faye)!

We also had a great range of cakes that were definitely in the sweet category and would’ve looked perfectly at home on a picnic. What picnic wouldn’t be complete without a G&T?

A good catch up with everyone, and who knew there was so much to talk about the world of womens high vis jackets? Can’t wait to see you all at the next one! Iona x

Comfort Food – Newcastle upon Tyne

March 10, 2015 6:45 pm in Newcastle Upon Tyne by Iona

Well all, it was a late start to 2015 but boy did you all bring out the big cakey guns! Turns out that comfort food is the ultimate theme for a cake event!

We returned to a venue that we last went to over a year ago – Ernest in the Ouseburn Valley. It’s a great bar / restaurant sitting just behind the Biscuit Factory. If you’re interested in making your first visit along there, check out their website here or give them a follow on twitter here. They let us take over their back room and under the mirror ball lighting we met up for cake. A big hello to all our cake club newbies who came along, I hope that we made you feel welcome and that you’ll be back again for more.

As I mentioned above, the cake selection this month was fantastic and there was such a wonderful choice. I’ve hopefully got pictures of them all in the gallery below for your perusal but I think I would just call out some special attention to one in particular.  Seymour continued his cheesecake reign with a peanut butter and jam version this month, I know peanut butter is a love it / hate it thing but I think the haters were in the minority at cake club. I didn’t get a great photo of it before we all dug in but I know there’s one mid-eat in there!

Thanks to all for coming along and I can’t wait for the next one!

Well that was a lovely end to the Newcastle 2014 world of CCC, with an international selection of Christmas baking. Huge thanks to all who came along to my house to celebrate, you were all wonderful house guests and welcome back at any time.

I made chocolate and red wine cake, Katy – Scandanavian ring cake, Helen – Polish gingerbread and honey cake, Faye – Buche de Noel, Lisa – After 8 cake, Lauren – Speculoos Krausenkake, Kate – Melomakarona, Hannah – Syrian honey and nut cake, Lizzie – Swedish ginger cake and Seymour – Gingerbread cheesecake

I think everyone would agreed that gingerbread cheesecake is a revelation and I’d recommend you check out the recipe here – Gingerbread cheesecake

Here’s a couple of pictures to show the wonders on offer – check out Lauren’s towering Krausenkake, and watch out for the non-cake offering sneaking onto the table!

Merry Christmas everyone!
