For those who have never heard of the Clandestine Cake Club head on over to the website to read a bit more about how it got started and how to take part.
Last Wednesday I attended my first ever CCC meeting. I was a bit afraid to take a cake along so was luckily invited as a guest. Lisa who runs the Newcastle CCC put a plea out on twitter looking for a guest (as hers had dropped out), needless to say I jumped at the chance! A night of free cake and a chance to meet fellow cake lovers of Newcastle? Yes please!
The club was held in Fenwick's this month and I had a fantastic time, eating cake and meeting new people. There were some amazing cakes to try, some are pictured above. (from left to right)
