Clandestine Cake Club Bolton - Her Name is Rio...

And historically June is a tricky month... For the past couple of years June has been a bit of a killer with holidays and people making the most of the sun. Although there were only a handful of us at Saturday's meeting, the cakes were larger than life! We even got our maracas out... You heard me.

I was fairly confident when booking this one that England would go and bugger up our chances of winning anything, so I decided to concentrate on the host country for this month's cake club. Brazil boasts arguably one of the best carnivals in the world, grows amazing exotic fruits and have some fantastic national dishes and drinks.

It was quite nice just to have a few of us, because we got to have a good old chin-wag, and there was loads to take home! We were back at the delightful Cherry's in Westhoughton. Stephanie and the girls waited on us hand and foot, and even came to have a chat to the bakers about our cakey delights - we made sure they had a decent bounty to take home too!

There were eight cakes in total, which included:

  • Rio's Coconut and Lime Skirt (check out those feathers!)
  • Brazilian Passionfruit Caipirinha Bundt Cake
  • Brazilian Cornmeal and Vanilla Cake
  • Rio Hummingbird Cake
  • Brazilian Carrot Cake with Chocolate Ganache and Brazil Nuts
  • Bolo de Laranja - Brazilian Orange Cake
  • Totally Tropical Mango and Pineapple Spiced Cake with Lime and Vanilla Syrup
  • English Strawberries and Cream Layer Cake

Thanks to those who battled through the heat and survived the smoke from the fire across the road! Yes, we smelled like we had been on fire when we got home, but a great afternoon of cake and gossip was had by all.

Our next event is on the 19th July, and our theme is 'Naked'. Register here.
