Cheshire North

A History of Cake

  • Styal

Good morning bakers! 
The 19th Century saw the introduction of baking powder, to celebrate cakes becoming delightfully light instead of stodgy baked goods and as a clue to the history of our next venue, our next meeting will be all about old fashioned bakes.

Bring along a retro cake, a classic that has stood the test of time or a long forgotten recipe. Dive into those recipe archives for a much loved Victoria sponge or a little known Mrs Beeton gem. Take a look back into our colourful cake history and bake a good old traditional treat! 

Additional info

The venue have kindly opened especially for us and will be selling hot and cold drinks.

There is plenty of parking, and the village is serviced by public transport, however, if you have any problems travelling to the venue please let me know.

  • A baker can bring a guest, but you must indicate this at the time of booking.
  • A cake loving guest does not have to bring a cake. They get to eat cake and can take cake home too.
