Clandestine Cake Club – Gomersal – ‘A year of cake’ book launch party 12.9.15

28 Oct


Red House 1


Red House Museum in Gomersal was a great location and venue for our ‘A Year of Cake’ Book Launch party on 12th September, 2015. We were in the Barn where there was lots of room to spread out our fabulous cakes and put up our Clandestine Cake Club bunting and balloons . (Amazingly one of the balloons is here with me today 28.10.15.   Its been battered about up and down the room by my grandson and it hasn’t gone down yet!)

Red House 9I took along my laptop to provide suitable party music but as it was drowning out our conversations, the music had to go.

This meeting had already been pencilled in as an ‘Introduction to Crochet’ meeting as many members had shown an interest in learning to crochet but as the new book was to be launched only two days before the meeting it was a chance to celebrate and to show off the new book. IMG_4513

Everyone was keen to look at the great new book and agreed it would be a fab addition to anyone’s book shelf in fact many had it on order and were awaiting delivery (if they hadn’t already received it)

This book  is the Clandestine Cake Club  ‘A Year of Cake’ and is published by Quercus Cookery. In the book are 100 Celebratory Recipes and I am pleased that one of my recipes, Quick Fruit Cake is in the book, page 173




It is a great follow up to the CCC first book  The Clandestine Cake Club Cook Book.

This candle was my table decoration


The cakes were amazing

Here are some photos from the morning

As always we had a great event which was enjoyed by all. Lots of talking, lots of laughing, lots of crocheting and last but not least lots of cake eating!



I would like to give special thanks to Kevin Wells who took many of these photographs and to Helen Morton (joint organiser)  and Helen Lister who helped me introduce the group to crochet.
