Retro Bakes – November 2017

Firstly, my apologies to all Beeston and Long Eaton members for the delay in writing this up!

Our last cake club gathering, Retro Bakes, took place at the end of November and was hosted by the lovely Clare. Although we were small in number, it was really great to get together again for a good catch up and to eat cake 🙂

This theme was a bit of a challenge but, as ever, all bakers rose to it!

We enjoyed:

Helen’s chocolate Battenberg cake

Clare’s raspberry roulade cake

Charlie’s chocolate and coffee marble loaf

April’s pineapple upside-down cake

We were also utterly delighted to make the acquaintance of the newest little addition to Clare’s household, Orla:

As ever, the tea was plentiful and there was a lot of cake/Bake Off-related conversation! My thanks to Clare for hosting us.  We look forward to the next one!

Happy New Year to all of our members. Please keep an eye on the website for details of our next gathering!
