Everyone’s talking about cake.
Yesterday I was invited to the BBC Radio Manchester studios at Media City, Salford to do just that. They had seen the article in Tuesday’s Bolton News, and wanted to learn more about my love of baking, and the Clandestine Cake Club.
When I arrived at the studios, I was told that I’d be interviewed by Heather Stott live on air. Eeek. I sat in their impressive waiting area where I could hear Heather telling her listeners that she would be talking to me later that morning. Fear belly-ache. I was utterly convinced that I would get a bout of uncontrollable hiccoughs, or worse… develop impromptu Tourettes! It’s possible…
When I was invited into the studio, Heather informed me that she is also a baker, so was keen to sample the Matilda cake that I’d brought with me. Double-eeek! She’s a baker! Luckily she loved the cake, lifting the weight of the world off my shoulders in one bite.
We chatted about how I started baking, my obsession with bundt cakes, and how people can join the Bolton division of the Clandestine Cake Club. I had a fabulous time! No need for the fear after all.
Thank you to Heather, Helen, Corinne (who made me a lovely brew…) for making me feel so welcome and for promoting the first Bolton Clandestine Cake Club. Remember, we are meeting on 25th February at 3.30pm. You can sign up here: Bolton Clandestine Cake Club.
If you want to listen to the show, (muffles own ears with pillows…) it’s available on iPlayer for the next six days here: Heather Stott Show 17.2.12
