Earlier this week, I went to my first ever Clandestine Cake Club.
For those of you who are unfamiliar with the ‘CCC’, it’s essentially an all-you-can-eat cake-fest for bakers and their lucky guests, held monthly in locations across the country, usually with a set theme to bake to.
The theme was ‘Kaffee und Kuchen’ – in other words, German cakes.
It took me quite a while to settle on a recipe as I wanted to do something traditional, but that would also (hopefully) look impressive.
I chose the ‘Frankfurter Kranz’, which is a cake baked in a ring and decorated with ‘jewels’ to resemble a crown. I’ll post the recipe soon, but for now here are a few of the other fabulous cakes which the friendly pony and I were lucky enough to sample – between us we had 6 slices on the night, and brought another 5 home – but I swear the pony ate most of them!
