Favourite Bakes – The Review

Well, we did it… 14 of us got together in the beautiful kitchen of Mrs Jones with our Favourite Bakes, ate as much as we could, and had a thoroughly lovely time!

It was really nice to learn a little about each other (as most of us had never met before), and about our choice of bake, as we all introduced ourselves.
The standard of baking was really high, and although we had some individuals among us who bake for a living, those who are bakers in their spare time should be very proud of what they produced today. Each and every bake was beautiful and delicious!

2 cake-filled hours flew in, and before we knew it, it was time to pack up our Tupperware boxes with an amazing array of baked goods to take home to our loved ones (and I am sure some of our work colleagues will be very grateful tomorrow when we take in any leftovers).

Sorry to those who wanted to come today, but who we didn’t have space for. Hope to meet you at the next event… details to be announced soon!

Feast your eyes on this photographic record of what we enjoyed today…

  3. I had a great time at the Baking Club trying out the variety of cakes and talking to the other bakers. I was very taken with Claire’s fresh coconut cake as it tasted fantastic and looked very attractive with the freshly grated coconut strands. I baked it yesterday for our family’s Easter Day get together and it went down very well! Here’s the recipe from Delia http://www.deliaonline.com/recipes/type-of-dish/entertaining/fresh-coconut-layer-cake.html . I agree with Claire that the 2 sponges were too thin to slice into 4 layers so I just stuck with the 2 layers but that was fine. I also added more sugar than Delia says to the frosting until it tasted really good. So thanks Claire!
