We had an early Christmas at Homebaked with Cake Club on Monday night.
The theme was ‘Christmas presents’, and, as usual with Cake Club, this could be interpreted in any way. So, bakes that could be given as presents, or present-themed bakes, and so on.
The regulars showed up, along with a few new faces – a lovely couple from Italy joined us and brought delicious pannatone. Also present was Lisa Phillips, a photography student who has popped in to the bakery a few times to take some photos. These photos are by her (minus the two Instagram photos of the bakes, which are mine!), and if you want to see more of her work, here is her website: http://www.lisaphillipsphotography.co.uk/
We had some delicious treats to try and talk about this time!
From Gingerbread Snowglobes, Christmas Tree Brownie Cake Pops, classic Shortbread and White Chocolate & Cranberry Truffles, we were spoilt for choice.
In the background, a CD of Christmas songs played, and we all discussed our plans for the upcoming holiday, Christmas dinners and our favourite festive movies (seems ‘Home Alone’ and ‘Love Actually’ are two firm favourites).
Sadly, this is the last Cake Club of the year, but I think we can all agree that Grace’s original idea for people to come together over their love of cake has become something wonderful we can all look forward to each month!
They’ll be back up again in the new year, and we’ll be sure to let you know when as soon as we can!
