Clandestine Cake Club Spen Valley Group at Blend Cleckheaton

29 Jul

Last year, I had introduced Lynn the founder of Clandestine Cake Club to  Blend  a lovely cafe/bar in Cleckheaton when she was running Leeds CCC and looking for new venues and we enjoyed a lovely evening at Blend in September 2011

I was having lunch in Blend recently, when Chris the owner approached me and asked if we would like to return. At this point it dawned on me it would be a good idea to be an Cake Club Organiser and that is how Spen Valley branch of the CCC came to fruition.

We had our inaugral meeting of Spen Valley CCC last night and thanks to Chris and his wife Sue, and some great bakers and guests, had a great time.

Here are some of the cakes we enjoyed (and took home to enjoy later)

Louise’s ‘Chocolate and Cheese’ cake, Sue’s Lemon Meringue cake (me), Helen’s Lemon Drizzle cake, Debra’s Devil’s Food cake, Susan’s Apple cake, Pat’s Carrot cake, Denis’s Yorkshire Parkin and Yorkshire tea loaf, Steph’s Victoria sponge, Liz’s Blueberry soured cream cake, Sharon’s Coffee and walnut cake and Fiona’s Blackcurrant drizzle cake.
