Life is for living, cake is for eating

The internationally renowned Clandestine Cake Club has popped up in Mortimer. This is a club with a difference where meetings are held at secret locations and members bringing along home-made cakes that follow a theme.

Conversation is all about cake and food and the talking starts when the first slice of cake is cut.

Founder of the Mortimer branch Jo Kay saw the Clandestine Cake Cookbook by Lynn Hill while on holiday. “I saw the book and thought ‘this looks like fun’. Who wouldn’t like a club where you chat and eat cake?”

The Mortimer branch of the Clandestine Cake Club opened in January 2014 and meets monthly. Each meeting has a different theme. July’s theme was European cakes where offerings included: Black Forest gateaux, Lemon, blueberry and coconut sponge, apple strudel and baklava.

You don’t have to bake in order to attend a meeting. You can come to just enjoy the conversation and cake.

If you would like to find out more about the Clandestine Cake Club you can find them on-line at where you can search out your nearest branch. Other clandestine meetings are held at Henley, Reading, Oxford and Woodley.
