Clandestine Cake Club at The Gallery Bistro & Revive Spa, Heckmondwike

9 Mar

We had a superb evening on Thursday 19th February.


The members of the Spen Valley group of the Clandestine Cake Club took along their cakes to the Gallery Bistro in Heckmondwike and were welcomed by owner Hilary and her team.

The theme of the evening was ‘Finishing Touches’ to echo the nature of the hair and beauty treatments available.

There were 22 people, 14 bakers and their guests and the cakes included, vanilla and chocolate cake,  light stem ginger cake, chocolate beetroot cake, coffee and walnut cake, chocolate frosted cake,  salted caramel cake,  Guinness and chocolate cake, Victoria sponge cake, coffee and chocolate cake, toffee apple cake, caramel cake, lemon curd cake and blackberry and mint and yet another chocolate cake. Beautiful to look at and delicious every one.

I was so busy chatting during the evening it was only when I looked at the photos later that I realised I had no pictures of cake eating!

Lots of cake pictures though.

Thanks to Kay @kayzeewells and Steph @missstephwalker for sending photos for me to add to this blog.

The Gallery is attached to the Revive Spa and during the evening many of the members enjoyed complementary facials and manicures and many had their eyebrows threaded.
