Launch of Swansea Clandestine Cake Club

There's a new club sweeping the nation where people meet in secret locations to eat and talk about cake. It's The Clandestine Cake Club. And I am pleased to say that there is now a club in Swansea.

I'll post details of all the events on this blog, but I strongly suggest you join the Swansea group on the CCC website to make sure you have all the up to date details.

It doesn't matter what your baking experience, this is a great excuse to practice, try new flavours and get tips from other bakers. The main rule of CCC is that you must make a cake - not a cupcake, muffin, pie, tart, cookie or brownie. A proper cake that can be cut into 8 - 12 slices. Beyond that, your imagination is the only limit. A theme is set for each meet, but the location is kept secret until around a week before the event. Every baker can bring 1 guest, and then it's a bit of a cake free-for-all. You even get to take home any leftover cake.

The Swansea CCC launches on 1st March 2012 - St David's Day. Here are the event details:


Wonderfully Welsh

As our first meet for the Swansea CCC is on St David’s day, I thought it appropriate for us to celebrate all things Welsh. So whether you have a favourite welsh cake, your sponge is the colour of daffodils, or the ingredients are welsh, let’s celebrate our intrinsic Welsh-ness with a wonderful slice of cake.


1st March 2012 at 7:00pm

We will be meeting in and around Swansea, and our first meet will be in a village outside the city centre.
Full details will be sent closer to the time, but there will be a bar available serving alcoholic & soft drinks and tea & coffee.

Book a place

If you as a baker/and a none baking guest (one guest per baker, please indicate when booking) want to attend this event, please complete the contact form below with an indication of the cake you will bake.
Allow 24 hrs for confirmation of your booking. Your place/places are not guaranteed until you receive this email.
Points to remember. Each cake must be large enough to slice into around 8 – 12 good slices. Sorry, but No cupcakes, Muffins, Brownies, Cookies, Pies or Tarts.
Home-bakers and professional bakers can join in. It’s not a competition, no judging, just a lot of fun. And you get to take cake home.
Read what Clandestine Cake Club is all about and have a mosey on over at the disclaimer page before you book. Then register as a member and it will be even more fun.


It’s all about Cake

I hope you will come and join us! In the meantime go and sign up on the website and join in the discussions. You can also follow me (@rhiandaniel) and @clandestinecake on Twitter. Don't forget to include the #SwanseaCCC hashtag to any relevant tweets.
