Afternoon Tea Saturday 17 August 2013

Never one to turn down the opportunity to have more happy guests around my afternoon tea table, I could hardly say no to a private booking request that came in with somewhat short notice.  As a consequence this menu was rustled together with a greater sense of urgency than...

Ay to Zed – Saltaire Clandestine Cake Club

Who would have thought health and cake could go together?  That we could actually have our cake and eat it too?  Well, we proved it just so at our Saltaire Clandestine Cake Club event on Tuesday 16 July as our venue was Nuffield Health Club in Shipley!  For those...

Afternoon tea Saturday 13 July 2013

This afternoon tea is a private booking of seasoned afternoon tea goers.  I understand that these ladies make a habit of enjoying such a pastime although it will be a first for them to be ‘behind closed doors’ and experience their first secret tea room.  I currently work with...

Fire & Ice – Saltaire Clandestine Cake Club

This month’s event was celebrating the club’s first anniversary.  It’s hard to believe we’ve been through a year of cake already!  Such happy memories and fun along the way. When I set the theme for this I hoped there might not too a literal take on the ‘fire’ and...

One Of Your Five A Day

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...

Lemon curd cream cake

I had to think of a cake to make for a recent Saltaire Clandestine Cake Club event.  The theme was ‘All Things Bright & Beautiful’ and, as I had some spare lemons in the fridge that needed using up, I thought something using lemon curd would do just fine. ...

All Things Bright & Beautiful

March has all the signs of spring with the days getting longer and the colourfulness of bright yellow daffodils starting to make a welcome appearance.  The theme for this months’ Clandestine Cake Club in Saltaire was designed to conjure up such images of all things bright and beautiful.  It...

It’s official: Saltaire loves cake!

The phenomenon that is tea and cake sweeping these pleasant isles came to Saltaire this afternoon. The occasion?  A book promotion for the Clandestine Cake Club recipe book. I have been the organiser of the Saltaire Clandestine Cake Club group for nearly a year now and this was our...
