Bury St Edmunds Clandestine Cake Club - Saturday 6th June

This month the Bury St Edmunds Clandestine Cake Club returned to the cosy surroundings of Oakes Barn in the centre of town. Their function room tucked away upstairs under the eves is the perfect setting for us.

This month the theme was Nigella vs Mary vs Delia with members invited to bring any cake by one of those three national baking treasures. Each of them were represented in our selection of cakes but in the end Mary was the winner with four of her cakes on the table, closely followed by Nigella with three and Delia coming in last with just one.

Here's what we had to share...

Sophie - Nigella's Honey Cake

Chrissi - Mary Berry's Chocolate/Orange Cake

Lynda - Mary Berry's Tiramisu Cake

Kate - Mary Berry's Coffee & Vanilla Layer Cake

Megan - Mary Berry's Sacher Torte

Sara - Delia's Iced Lemon Layer Cake

Katherine - Nigella's Lemon Syrup Loaf Cake

Me - Nigella's Chocolate Malteser Cake

Thanks again to the staff at Oakes Barn for being so helpful and welcoming. For details of upcoming events have a look at the website here.
