Clandestine Cake Club - Bury St Edmunds - 10th May 2014

This month the Bury St Edmunds Clandestine Cake Club returned to a familiar venue – Graze Kitchen & Bar in the centre of the town. Their private dining room is perfect for our gatherings and the owners have been nothing but accommodating.

The theme for May was “Mystery Ingredients” so I was in the unusual position of knowing hardly anything about the cakes that we would be sharing. The aim was to taste each cake and try and guess the secret ingredient but this turned out to be much trickier than anticipated! In the end I got just one right and that was only because I had made the cake myself previously. Everyone had fun discussing the possibilities though and we had some great cakes to choose from.
Here’s this month’s line up…
Shauna's Lemon Cake with Sage Drizzle

Helen F's Courgette & Lime Cake

Sam's Chocolate Fudge Cake (made with mashed potato)

Kate's Pea Cake (I should have taken a picture of it's bright green interior!)

Megan's Earl Grey Tea Cake

My Sweet Potato and Pecan Cake

Jane's Orange Cake (also made with mashed potato)

Rene's Chocolate Avocado Cake

Nathalie's Chocolate & Coffee Cake (made with mayonnaise)

A big thanks again to everyone at Graze for making us feel so welcome. If you'd like to get involved with the Clandestine Cake Club then be sure to check out the website for details of events in your area.
