We enjoyed some classic combos and some more unusual offerings for our Famous Doubles event, celebrating our 2nd Birthday.
On the savoury side, Cheese & Onion was the flavour of the night, with Cat producing cheese and onion flapjacks: tasty and topped with seeds, a really unusual twist on that classic flavour.
We also tucked into a comforting cheese and onion pie, oozing with beautiful melting cheddar.
Bridging the gap between sweet and savoury was Jayne’s stunning Almond Fruit Cake, served with slices of cheese, together with an Egg & Bacon flan topped with fresh figs.
Then it was full steam ahead into a variety of cakes and biscuits. Variations on the Bakewell theme proved popular with Cherry & Almond biscuits and an Apple and Blackberry Bakewell Tart.
Another combination clearly much loved by our bakers is Chocolate and Raspberry, with both double chocolate and raspberry brownies plus a White Chocolate and Raspberry cheesecake. Finishing off the evening with elegance and style was Naomi’s tastefully decorated Coffee and Walnut Cake.
It was a shame that one of our regular bakers was unable to join in the celebrations because she’d managed to book a belated birthday Afternoon Tea treat on the same day. She said her capacity for cake was limited and she didn’t think she’d manage two cakey events in one day. Really??!
Over the two years we’ve been baking together, more than 20 bakers have joined us – new faces are always welcome.
