Yesterday I attended the November Cake Eaters Anonymous (also known as cake club!) event. It was great fun as ever! This month the venue was the upstairs area at the Malt Cross, and Ed and his team did an amazing job of helping get the upstairs ready for cake club.

If you’ve never been to the malt cross before, I would really recommend it, it’s a lovely little retro (former) music hall on st James street in the heart of Nottingham. They do amazing home cooked food (my favourite is the big orange veggie burger) and the atmosphere is friendly and homely. They even have board games and books for you to play with/ read while you’re there!

I’ve been thinking a lot the last month about what cake I would make for cake club. Since its the last one before Christmas, I wanted to make a really festive cake but I’m not a fan of fruit cake at all so that was out. I decided to make a layer cake in festive red and green with holly decorations. Here’s what my cake looked like!

And here are the cakes I selected for my three to eat at cake club – a slice of pistachio loaf (very nice!) some coconut cake (very nice but needed more icing as it had a very high cake – icing ratio) and one of Helen’s lovely cupcakes (I haven’t eaten this yet but I can’t WAIT!).

The picture above is the cakes I brought home from the event! I’m looking forward to trying them all in the next few days (the chocolate cake slice is from a mustache Movemer cake – It tastes fab too!!)

Overall I had a great time at the November event and we raised lots of money for charity of the month Teddies For Kiddies too!
