Clandestine Cake Club – Pudsey & West Leeds 1st Birthday Party!

Clandestine Cake Club – Pudsey & West Leeds 1st Birthday Party!

I can’t believe that last night I held my 14th Clandestine Cake Club event and we celebrated our first birthday as the Pudsey and West Leeds group!  Time really does fly when you’re having fun!

What’s Clandestine Cake Club?

We bake cake, eat cake, talk cake and even get to take cake home!

It’s been secretly happening around the world for over 2 years and there are now over 160 groups worldwide!  Not bad to say it all started in Leeds thanks to the lovely Lynn Hill!  We now even have a cookbook out!

Our birthday event last night was held at Sandbar in Horsforth, Leeds and once again they proved to be very lovely hosts.  We had 20 cakes on the night and around 40 people in total.

What do we do at Clandestine Cake Club?  We eat cake and chat to friends old and new!  There’s no money involved, we just hope that members will buy drinks and any other refreshments from our venue and anyone can attend as long as you’re on the list!  To find out more register at  Some events book up quickly so don’t miss out, join up today!  The best thing is it’s not a competition, so anyone can come along, we’ve got first time bakers coming to events so please don’t be worried about what your cake will taste or look like, come and meet lovely people and taste lots of cake!
