Clandestine Cake Club Bolton - Jingle All the Way!

This was always going to be a bit of a special gathering. I kept this one quite small so I could use one of my favourite cake club venues; we went home to Thyme Deli. This was a members only event and our theme was Jingle All the Way.

Thyme's owner Amanda has been a supporter of our club since day one, and even opened specially for us. I was really eager to have our meeting at Thyme because it's always beautifully decorated during the festive season, and they sell a wonderful array of seasonal foods and kitchen accessories. It was perfect.

Fifteen of us attended the meeting, which felt very small compared to our usual soirees! The cakes came in a wide variety of shapes and sizes, and not two were the same. Everyone had different interpretations of our theme; from happy memories to family favourites. A special mention has to go to Heather who made the most amazing stollen. This is particularly outstanding seeing as she has just had an operation to fix her poorly shoulder and because this time last year she didn't bake!

Our cakes included:

  • Ginger Beer House
  • Terry's Chocolate Orange Cake
  • Ferrero Rocher Cake with Nutella Buttercream
  • Chocolate Snowball Cake
  • Almond, Amaretti and Amaretto Cake
  • Stollen Ring
  • Chocolate Mud Christmas Pud
  • Chocolate and Chestnut Truffle Torte
  • Orange and Almond Cake
  • Christmas Chocolate Fruit Cake
  • Gingerbread Loaf with Cream Cheese Frosting
  • Orange and Brandy Winter Berry Cake
  • Chocolate Log
  • Black Forrest Roulade
  • Redcurrent and Tangerine Cake

I will bore you no more... on with the show!
