National Cake Week

National Cake Week. 3rd - 9th October 2016

Since 2011 we have celebrated the humble cake in all its glory with a yearly event.

National Cake Week

3rd – 9th October 2016

National Cake Week is all about baking a cake and getting together with family and friends. No competition, no judging, just having fun, eating and sharing cake.

Pick a day during National Cake Week (always the first full week in October) to have your gathering. Invite people to bake a cake and bring it along to your party. Share in the joy of creating something so nice and homemade as the humble cake.

Cupcakes have their special place in the world, but we shouldn’t forget there are some wonderful whole cakes out there. Recipes locked away in old books, new recipes never tried. The cake is screaming to have its say in the world. So let’s give it the headline it deserves.

Can’t decide what to make? There are lots of recipes to choose from in the new Clandestine Cake Club Cook ‘A Year of Cake’

Or check out our Recipe page.

What will you be baking and how will you celebrate? Check out the National Cake Week Forum. 

Have fun
