Well the weather may not have stayed Spring like for the evening but it definitely felt like the sun was shining when Newcastle Cake Club rocked up to The Cycle Hub on the Quayside this month. Huge thanks to Lizzie, Harriet and Katie who made us feel at home at the cafe. It’s a great venue with a wonderful selection of cycling gear (alongside the food and drink!) including some awesome prints that I was VERY tempted by.
And all of this before we even got to the cakes… Many thanks to everyone who came along, it was a great evening with many summery flavours and tastes. The long list is as follows…
Rachel – Lemon crackle cake, Nelly – Lemon curd cake, Kate – lemon and strawberry roulage, Lisa – Blueberry and soured cream cake, Lauren – Rhubarb and ginger cake, Anna – Lemon curd layer cake, Shelley – Beesting cake, Faye – Romanian cozonac, Kerrie – Grapefruit and mint cake, Rose – Ginger cake, Hannah – Upside down pineapple cake, Philippa – Rosewater and cardamon cake, Tracy – Healthy hidden apple cake, Iona – Orange curd and polenta cake
The evening flowed along until we were all stuffed and ready to take cake back with us. I think most of us will be thinking of taking a trip back down to the river when the sun is shining to take advantage of this wonderful cafe. Some of us have already got plans to be back to see The Handlebards performing Shakespeares Comedy of Errors, I’ve been told last year was fantastic so fingers crossed for sunny weather then!
Great to see so many bakers, see you all next time! x
