Clandestine Cake Club - Fall Fancies




The Clandestine Cake Club in Dundee is going from strength to strength. We've had 6 meetings now and we have 33 members.












Our October meeting was in a sweet little cafe on Perth Road called Tea Leaves and Coffee. Rebecca organised October's meeting (yes, I am very late in posting this!) and the topic she picked was Fall Fancies. We had pumpkin, blackberries, raspberries, apple, bramble, beetroot, pear, cinnamon and maple as our flavours.

It was a small meet, which was actually quite nice as we were able to talk together as a group instead of the little pockets of conversations we usually have. The topics of conversation went from cake to breastfeeding, to breastmilk ice cream to men dropping from the sky. If our new baker Gary and his guest Anna were a little bemused by the conversation, then they hid it well.

I made a victoria sponge, which I filled and topped with raspberry buttercream and raspberry fondant chocolate eyeballs. Not my finest creation in terms of looks, but it was enjoyed.

  3. Well done Jac. So glad it's proving to be such a success. Cakes look amazing as ever, but I do find those eyeballs spooky :-S
