Calling all bakers! Do you fancy joining in with a new Cake challenge? Let me introduce to you the Clandestine Cake-A-Long. I will be baking my way through the new and fantastic Clandestine Cake Club Cookbook and would love if you joined me.
A fortnightly baking group where we all bake from a set recipe – All the recipes are from the fabulous new book – The Clandestine Cake Club Cookbook.
The book itself is jam-packed full of 120 cake recipes all from members of the Clandestine Cake Club. I’ve talked about the Clandestine Cake Club many times before – a chance to get together with other cake lovers whilst eating and talking about cake.
The book arrived on my doorstep last week and I was delighted to be included as one of the recipe contributors (Page 242 Oreo Rosette Cake if you’re interested!) I cannot wait to get started on baking my way through the book – there are sooo many that I want to do NOW!
I have been chatting with the Clandestine Cake Guru, Lynn Hill this week about my plans to bake all of the recipes in the book. We would also like to focus on each organiser behind the recipes and will be interviewing them (in a friendly cake related way) during the fortnight that their recipe is in the spotlight.
So how can you get involved?
I’d love it if people wanted to join in and bake with me – You don’t have to do every recipe but it would be great fun. If people want to blog about their bake, I will include a linky that you can add your URL to – if you don’t have a blog, feel free to add a picture of each cake you bake to the Clandestine Cake-A-Long Pinterest group that Lynn has set up especially for our challenge. Your Pinterest pic can then be added to the linky instead. The link will be open for the next 2 weeks.

So when does it start?
The first Cake-A-Long will start next Tuesday 12th February 2013 and will remain open until Monday 25th February.
Which Cake is first?
Pistachio and Lime Cake! Page 141.
(The wonderful looking cover cake – I’m not promising mine will look that good!)
I thought it only right to start with our illustrious leader, Lynn. Lynn has agreed to be interviewed. I will be contacting the other contributors in the coming weeks to see if you would like to be included.
I will organise the next few bakes as soon as possible to give plenty of notice.
If I blog, can I include the recipe?
No, only the original contributor is allowed to publish their recipe on their own blog. If you have done so by the time it is your fortnight, then I will happily link back to you.
Do I have to bake every single recipe to be included?
No, but it makes it so much more fun if there is a lot of us doing it.
