On Wednesday the 15th of October, I attended the most exciting Clandestine Cake Club meeting so far! We were meeting in our not-so-secret venue of “The Food Academy” in Flannels in the centre of Leeds. There were about a dozen members there, some I had met before, some I knew on Twitter, and some who I’d never met.

For those of you who do not know what the Clandestine Cake Club is, read on! It was the brain child of Lynn Hill who wanted people to bake cakes and get together to socialise and have fun. Lynn is currently trying to conquer the world with 36 clubs (and counting) all over the country and also a couple in Europe! You can find out more at The Clandestine Cake Club website.

As always, everyone was friendly and talkative and the cakes looked amazing! But unusually, we had a few special guests – Matt Allwright, a cameraman and a producer from BBC1’s “The One Show”!

We were filmed at our meeting, eating andtalking about cake and other things, and Matt entered into the spirit of the afternoon, tasting many cakes and joining in with the chatter.
