If you would like a chance to win the one of the calendars, simply leave a comment on this post.

However If you would like extra entries:

If you add everything into one comment you will only get one entry, so remember to write a separate comment for each entry.

November's Cake Meet


Yes, it has been quiet on the cake club front recently. What with one thing and another I haven’t had the time to go along to the past two. But I made room in my calendar for this month's meeting. The theme was Petit Fours, which were right up Cakeyboi’s street.

My recent bake of Pumpkin Cake Doughnuts was a perfect take-along (especially as host Becca from Becca Bakes specifically requested them!) and luckily I managed to find a few more tins of pumpkin (In TK Maxx of all places!!).



The venue was Duke’s Corner in Brown Street, Dundee. It's a great pub, open til late with amazing food, host to lots of DJ's and gigs – I think The View started out there - and of course a great selection of drinks. We were given a cosy, shady area behind a dark curtain , which made the whole event seem even more surreptitious than usual!!



The selection of bakes was, I can honestly say, my favourite since I started attending the cake club. There were chocolate and pomegranate petit fours, almond cupcakes with amaretto frosting, macarons with chocolate frosting, lemon and peppermint creams, peanut butter truffle brownies, salted caramel cupcakes, mocha cupcakes, chocolate and caramel mini ├ęclairs, and more besides. Now, I have never tried macarons before, because I have never been a fan of almond flavour, but I am a convert. These are delicious. Made by our other host - Jac from Tinned Tomatoes blog - they were my favourites along with the salted caramel cupcakes. Disneyboi came along with me for the first time and he was stuffed to the gunnels and so was I, despite neither of us having dinner beforehand!



A fab cake event as ever, great to meet new folk ( I even met an old Uni chum whom I hadn't seen for more years than I care to remember). I can’t wait for the next!
