Dr Who Clandestine Cake Club – 50th Anniversary Celebrations

Our latest Clandestine Cake Club for Pudsey and West Leeds took place the day after the BBC’s special 50th anniversary episode of Dr Who.  So we not only talked cake but Dr Who too!

This event was held at Sandbar in Horsforth which had the perfect decor including circles making a lot of us think of the Tardis we used to see Tom Baker’s Dr in during the 1970’s.

The cakes that attended on the day:

Dalek Cake – Sharon


Cyberman Cake – Hannah


Tardis Cake – Jessica


Weeping Angel Food Cake – Nicola C


Treacle Spice Cake – Amanda


Kaiser Pudding Cake – Amy


Chocolate Black Hole Cake – Jennie



Chocolate Tardis Cake – Chris


Ood Cake – Helena


Custard Cake with Churros (Fish) Fingers – Steph


Weeping Angel Food Cake – Nicola L


Black Magic Cosmic Cake – Eleanor


Fish Fingers and Custard Cake – Alice



‘Still Not Ginger’ Cake – Emma


Madiera Tardis Cake – Alex


Tom Baker’s Dr Who Scarf in a cake – Jill



Cherry and Amaretto Cake – Hilary


A little bit wonky after travelling but Hilary did bring her son along… when I saw him stood in the queue for cake I actually thought it was David Tennant!  Yes my heart did a little skip and I looked again… he really was a good look a like and also called David!

Lakeland were very generous and donated some Dalek items for us to give out on the day.   We ran a raffle and raised £60 which we have donated to a local charity close to my heart… Pudsey Live at Home.


The Dalek cake stand and cake toppers were won by Helena and the Dalek cake mould was won by Hannah.

Thank you to everyone for their generosity.

They provide many services to local elderly often housebound people including befriending, support and help for older people. Activities including arts and crafts workshop, computer group, gentle exercise and Tai Chi groups, Walking groups, social group, Lunch club, Trips and outings, Holidays, Home visits, Emergency shopping and a telephone link.

I’m a befriender with the charity and also help them on their cake stalls at events they hold at St Andrew’s Church in Pudsey throughout the year.

If you can offer a couple of hours a week to visit someone please get in touch with the team.
