This evening was the inaugral Cakes4Fun cake club which is to be a monthly get together... each month has a theme and all participants must bring an appropriately baked and decorated cake. It's a great excuse to try new ideas, eat cake and discuss all things baking!!
The theme this month was Glitz & Glamour... this was a tough start... thinking of a cake to bake to meet the theme took a while. The general consensus seemed to be chocolate and glitter... with 6 out of the 7 cakes being chocolate... including mine!
I decided to go for a White & Dark Chocolate Cake from BBC GoodFood which looks really good visually when you cut in to it. I did however, double the recipe to give more height to the cake. To make the chocolate stars you can either make your own or Dr Oetker now do good chocolate stars in the supermarket. The ones I decorated my cake with are covered in edible gold leaf and gold star transfer paper.
Why not set up your own cake club with friends or follow this link to the Clandestine Cake Club where you can either find a club near you or start one up!
