Let’s face it, we all love eating cake or is that too much of a universal statement?  Be that as it may, what better way to beat the guilt trip than to ensure there’s ‘one of your five a day’ on the menu?  Such was the theme for Saltaire Clandestine Cake Club’s April event.  We had fruit:  pear, apples, elderflower, lime, plums, orange, fig and banana.  We had veg:  courgette, beetroot and squash.  It was interesting that we didn’t have one carrot cake – one which I would have expected.

We had a fantastic selection of cakes all with exceptionally creative interpretations of the theme.  I was delighted to be able to welcome a few of our coeliac suffering members who had four delicious gluten free cakes to choose from.  I don’t think they could believe their luck!

Our hosts for the evening were The Terrace in Saltaire and we couldn’t have been looked after better. A very big thank you to them!  It proved to be a great venue, being tucked up on the first floor area all to ourselves.

Here are some piccies of the evening:

As there was only crumbs left at the end, everyone seemed to have given their thumbs up to this month’s theme and left feeling the healthier for it!
