Cornwall Clandestine Cake Club – Kaffee und Kuchen

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.

This was Cornwall’s second CCC, organised by the lovely Ellie Michell and held at 108 Coffee, a relatively new coffee shop in Truro.

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!

  1. Oh my, don’t they look wonderful? Looking forward to seeing your post. I so want to attend a CCC, but haven’t been able to make any of them so far. Now I’ve seen the pictures though, I’m having second doubts and wondering if I’d be able to reach such a high standard!

    • You definitely should try and make it to one! I’m not going to the next one as it’s in the day, but hopefully January… Everything you blog looks delicious so I wouldn’t worry about not being good enough!
