Oreo Rosette Cake

Back in the last week of August I finally was free to go along to one of Wharfedale Clandestine Cake Club’s events.  This was the first time I’d managed to get along, there was always something else happening.  Thankfully being the summer holidays I had more time and I was free to go along being…

Amaretto Cream Cake from The Clandestine Cake Club Cookbook.

This was a blog post I started writing at the beginning of January but ended up being sidetracked by other commitments.  I remembered only today, a month later about this bake. So better late than never, I suppose! I’d forgotten about the blog post but not about this yummy cake.  So this what I had…

Mocha Marble Cake from The Clandestine Cake Club Cookbook.

A couple of weeks ago I was looking for a quick pudding or dessert to bake for Sunday lunch.  I had always wanted to bake the Mocha Marble Cake from The Clandestine Cake Club Cookbook after tasting it when my friend had made it for one of our local cake club events.  It had gone…

Sticky Toffee Cake.

About three weeks ago we had a special family Sunday meal at our house for my Dad and step-mum.  After some gammon which was the smallest joint ever and had to be padded out with pigs in blankets and lots of veg, I had to think of a pudding that everyone would like. When it’s…

Chocolate Mocha Hedgehog Birthday Cake.

Who had a chocolate hedgehog birthday cake as a child?  I can’t remember having one myself but I do remember my mum making me a Mr Greedy cake when I was about 6 or 7!  It was iced with pink buttercream and I loved it as I was a huge fan of the Mr Men….

Thanksgiving Pumpkin Cakes

A few weeks back I wanted to use up a tin of pumpkin puree which had been lurking in my baking cupboard. My family don’t like pumpkin pie so I looked through my recipe books and found a few recipes which would help me use this tin.  I had made a Coconut Pumpkin Bar cake…

Chocolate Amaretto Cake from The Clandestine Cake Club Cookbook

Last Monday was the Harrogate Clandestine Cake Club event which was held at The Mitre Inn in Knaresborough.  I had chosen the theme of Boozy Cakes as we were going to be in a pub in the middle of Knaresborough next to the station.  This, funnily enough didn’t bode well with my Sober For October…

Dorset Apple Cake

I’m still catching up on all my blog posts and realised I had made this cake over three weeks ago for the Clandestine Cake Club VCake Event which was called “Regional Cakes”.  As I am originally from Nottinghamshire I wanted to find something that reflected my home county’s heritage.  This was easier said than done.  When…

York Clandestine Cake Club- Book Launch Event at Hobbycraft, Monks Cross.

A few months ago Clandestine Cake Club organisers were asked if they were interested in getting in contact with their local Hobbycraft store to hold a special event marking the publication of The Clandestine Cake Club Cookbook.  Although the book has been out since February, it has only recently been on sale in Hobbycraft stores…
