Clandestine Cake Club Bolton - Monster Mash!

I was working in the kitchen, late one night
When my eyes beheld an eerie sight
For my monster cake from his slab, began to rise
And suddenly to my surprise
He did the mash, he did the monster mash...

I knew this one was going to be a belter. Today's turnout is one of the best I have ever seen in terms of creativity and people pushing their 'safety' boundaries. Hell, one of them isn't even a baker and he knocked up a fantastic chocolate slime cake just to be part of the fun. 

Bolton Clandestine Cake Club has now been running for eight months, but it feels like I've done it for years. I've met some great new friends and we've had new members join us every single month. Some people come every time, others just when they can. Today was a fantastic meeting of friends old and new. We even had Sam and April who were still bumps at our first meeting!

Dressed for the occasion...

We held our meeting at the Rivington Pub and Grill on Station Road in Blackrod. What fantastic hosts! It's a beautiful venue which has recently been refurbished since it was the Ridgway Arms. Everyone was commenting on the pretty decor and welcoming wafts coming from the kitchen. The staff seemed as excited about the cakes as we were! Don't worry, we left some cake for them too.

The cakes were effing brilliant. Club members really did excel themselves! We had everything from zombies to eyeballs and neon cakes bright enough to light the room. We had around 25 massive cakes to chose from; monster in theme and size! They included:

  • Sour Snot Cake 
  • Monster Poppy Seed and Lemon Cake
  • Gruesome Graveyard Cake
  • Giant Spider Cake
  • Cookie Monster Chocolate Cake
  • Toffee Apple Pumpkin 
  • Terry the Chocolate Orange Monster
