The Clandestine Cake Club was founded in Leeds in December 2010. Eleven curious cake lovers attended our first event, for which the theme was ‘cornucopia’, baking and eating their way through an abundant array of different cakes and flavours. In homage to that first event, here is a bountiful celebratory cake piled with a medley of fruits and flavours that can be adapted for any time of year using seasonal produce and your favourite complementary liqueur. Break open the bubbly and enjoy a glass of cheer as you celebrate what thousands of members and their friends now consider a rather wonderful excuse for copious amounts of cake. Cheers!
