For our last clandestine cake club we took part in the inaugural “Taste of Chorley” food festival. Holding our “Taste Sensations” event in the heart of Chorley.
Kindly hosted by Mason’s Market Cafe we enjoyed a fabulous selection of cakes in a very busy cafe. Our event and the wider food festival was a great success and brought lots of people out to enjoy the food, tasters, demonstrations and wider general foodie hub bub in the town.
The day was very busy for myself as I was also manning a cake and bakes stall for my WI who were also taking part to raise funds for our local Homestart group. We were joined by another local WI. It was a roaring success and we sold out (luckily for me) by 2pm ish and made over £380 for the charity. I felt a little like I had baked for Britain !
Mason’s Market Cafe is situated on the covered market and serves quality food and beverages at great prices. A great spot to pop in for a coffee whilst shopping. We were warmly welcomed by the team who also enjoyed sampling our cakes.
Our cakes for Taste Sensations were
Pistachio and rosewater cake
Sticky ginger lemon drizzle cake
Buckwheat banana choc chip cake (Gluten free)
Ginger and lemon cake
Cherry fudge cake
Zucchini and lime curd cake (Gluten free)
Thanks to all the bakers and cake eaters and of course the team at Mason’s market cafe. Thanks all to Totally Locally Chorley who helped me locate a venue in a very busy town centre.
