East Meets West – Showstopper Cakes

Chocolate & Fruit Showstopper – Sue

On Sunday January  20 a group of Glasgow Baking Club attendees headed east to Edinburgh to enter the wonderful world of the most fabulous Edinburgh Cake Ladies.

Alison, who founded the Edinburgh Cake Ladies, had very kindly invited the Glasgow Baking Club to join in on their January caketogether, with the theme of Showstopper Cakes.

A group of 6 of us made the journey to Edinburgh, with our cakes, cake stands, and cake knives.

Have a look at the wonderful world of Showstopper Cakes we had the pleasure of sharing with our friends from the East…

Apologies if I have missed your cake, don’t know whether to blame my pregnant state or the new camera, but think I missed out a couple of cakes, and some photos were too blurry to use.

Feast your eyes on this table of loveliness, however…

Finally a big Thankyou to Barry, Becky, Frances, Kirsteen and Sarah who made the journey from Glasgow to Edinburgh, and a huge Thankyou to Alison of the Edinburgh Cake Ladies for inviting us and for making us so welcome…

So, as for the next meeting, I might be a little busy with a new arrival, but am working with Kirsteen to organise an event in March/April, so keep your eyes on the website, Facebook page and Twitter accounts for news of that.
