Last Saturday, the 20th of October, the fourth meeting of the Bury St Edmunds Clandestine Cake Club took place in our usual haunt. The meeting took place at the cafe/bar of the apex in the centre of town and this proved to be a great venue as always.
I'm always impressed by the wonderful cakes members bring along to our events but this time we were treated to some truly delicious offerings. Not surprisingly our spread generated a few comments from other customers passing by!
This time we were also joined by a reporter (who didn't want any cake - I know!) from the local paper, the Bury Free Press and you can find his write up in last Friday's paper or on the website here.
So, on to the most important part - the cakes! This month's theme was Autumn Bakes and as you can see we were really spoilt for choice....
Here's a closer look at each cake...
Shauna's Caramel Apple Cake - I loved the sticky, gooey caramel sauce on the top of this one!
Jane's Chocolate Pumpkin Cake - when Jane told me what cake she would be bringing it never occurred to me that it would be an actual pumpkin! Fantastic on the outside, delicious on the inside.
Sonia's Summer Berry Upside Down Cake - I loved how fruity and light this one was.
Helen's Luscious Lemon Cake - this was so delicious with bags of lemony flavour.
Ruth's Ginger and Lemon Cake - I just loved the combination of ginger and lemon curd in this one.
Rene's Swedish Apple Cake - a lovely cake, really sticky and moist.
Claire's Chocolate Guinness Cake - this was a really dark, dense and delicious cake with a lovely flavour thanks to the guinness.
And finally, my Parkin - a great alternative to gingerbread. You can find the recipe here.
The next Bury St Edmunds meet is scheduled for Sunday 9th December. You can find the details, together with details of all the other upcoming events here.
