As co-hosts of the Cambridge Clandestine Cake Club, Deepa & I will be joining some other members as well as the creator of this fantastic national cake club, Lynn Hill, at London’s Earls Court on Saturday 14th September 2013.
The CCC stand will be there from the 13th – 15th September, so do go and say hello to Lynn and the team and wave at me if you see me there on the Saturday, it would be great to meet some fellow foodies whilst there.
I went to the Cake & Bake Show last year in London and it was all a little too much about cupcakes and sugar craft for me, however their team took these sort of comments on board and have a much more varied line up this year as a result, this is fantastic to hear and I am genuinely excited to not only be going along as a guest, but to be helping out on a stand on the day I’m visiting too.
There will be demos, book signings, live interviews and even a competition theatre this year, it looks a lot bigger to say the very least.
We will be on the CCC stand chatting to cake lovers, helping to judge a little competition that Lynn is running and to help recruit the next wave of members for our clubs across the country, it’s very exciting indeed.
The CCC team were up at the Cake & Bake Show in Manchester earlier in the year and the “for fun” competition on that particular weekend was judged by Peter Sidwell, co presenter of Britain’s Best Bakery who will be joining us in London to help taste the entries again.
The cakes on display even enticed the likes of Eric Lanlard, Dan Lepard, Mich Turner (from Little Venice Cake Company), Natasha Stringer and Brendan Lynch, both from the Great British Bake Off.
So, who knows what (or who) Earls Court will bring to the stand?!…
If you are coming along to the Cake & Bake Show on any of the days, you must enter this fabulous cake competition, of which has some amazing prizes from the likes of Yorkshire Tea, Lakeland and Squires Kitchen. Click here for more on this.
And if you weren’t planning on coming along, but now you want to, Lynn is also giving away 5 sets of tickets for this event, just visit her website here to learn more.
Hopefully we will see you there!
