Giveaway: Clandestine Cake Club Cookbook by Lynn Hill

Clandestine Cake Club Cookbook by Lynn Hill
It's my favourite baking book ever, and I've only had a copy for a few weeks. The Clandestine Cake Club Cookbook by Lynn Hill is a comprehensive collection of fantastic recipes fresh from the kitchens of the club's members. Each has been lovingly perfected in our homes, gathered by our leader Lynn Hill and bound in this beautiful book by the creative whizz kids at Quercus Books.

The book is split into:
  • Victorian Cakes - pretty bakes inspired by historical tales. Pastel Battenberg, floral concoctions and tales of the empire remind us of the very first meeting held in Leeds in 2010.
  • Fruity Cakes - ahem... they're part of your five a day... A chapter jam packed with beautifully moist cakes including rhubarb, plums, pears and apples. Pretty as a picture!
  • Global Cakes - we take inspiration from our friends overseas and look at everything from Finnish Christmas cake to Japanese tea...
  • Chocolatey Cakes - the cakes we only ever manage a slither of at cake club, yet somehow have the strength to devour a whole slice later that night... Oozing centres and glossy ganache fill these pages.
  • Celebration Cakes - it's all about the pomp and ceremony here! We celebrate all year round with a variety of wonderful cakes, including champagne, spices and of course some beautiful festive bakes.
  • Creative Cakes - we love a bit of imagination at cake club! Our varied themes mean that we never get a plain sponge. Expect crazy colours, toppings and variations on a theme here.
  • Classic Cakes - there is a very special place in our hearts for a classic which is well executed, perhaps with the baker's own little twist or finishing touch. Even the sponge in this section is listed as curious...
  • Zesty Cakes - perfect for any occasion and a real crowd pleaser. So popular in fact, they have a section of their very own. 

It goes on general sale on 14th February 2013, RRP £20.
