The Clandestine Cake Club started as a way for amateur bakers to get together, each bringing their own cake. It's now gone global and the Clandestine Cake Club Cookbook has a great sampling of recipes from club creator Lynn Hill and other members. The book is split into types of cakes from Classic to Chocolatey and Fruity to Creative.
Baking and cakes have seen a huge surge in popularity over the past few years and the nation has truly embraced the trend. This event celebrates the very best cakes - from the finest tea room slice to the many varieties on the shelves of supermarkets, bakery shops and retail food chains across the country.
There is a really sensible progression through the cookbook so that you 'learn' as you go along. A lot of the recipes need a good bit of prep work but there are enough that can be made quickly when you need a sugar hit. Also while many of the ideas are complicated or require practiced skills they are well explained and worth trying out.
