Every year (for the past 792 years!) the streets in the centre of Loughborough, Leicestershire have been taken over by fair rides, game stalls and the sweet smell of candy floss
So it was very fitting that the theme for the Loughborough branch of the Clandestine Cake Club this month was the fun of the fair
The (top secret) venue was at the town hall, right in the middle of the action (which admittedly meant navigating cake boxes through crowds of people!)
It was great to see the amazing effort each baker had put into interpreting the theme – and they tasted even better than they looked!
Top marks for decoration went to Janet’s hook-a-duck creation – interactive cakes are the way of the future!
The rules of cake club
If you’ve never been to a cake club event, it’s well worth looking one up in your area – not only do you get to experience some tasty treats, it’s a lovely way to meet new people
This time we both baked, and took the boys along for their first experience (recipe to follow…)
Just one word of advice – take very small pieces of each cake for the best experience – you can always go back for more!
After our sweet tooth(s) had been more than satisfied, we had all the fun of the real fair to experience
(Although we decided some things are best enjoyed from the ground!)
