Giveaway: Clandestine Cake Club Cookbook

I’ve been involved with Clandestine Cake Club (CCC) for a few years now and can remember when Lynn Hill, the founder, ran her first club in Leeds. Unfortunately I couldn’t make the first meeting, but I still loved the concept.  About a year ago Lynn contacted me to see if I wanted to submit a […]

Confessions of a cookbook addict

Beetle Forest Gateau

When I heard that the first Derby Clandestine Cake Club theme would be Trick or Treat I knew that last year’s Black Beetle Cakes would have to make a reappearance but in a slightly different form. The Clandestine Cake Club (CCC) has […]
