A decorated cake for cake club

My September Clandestine Cake Club theme was “A Decorated Cake” and so I decided to try out a buttercream icing technique I had seen done. I made a victoria sponge filled with strawberry jam (homemade) and iced with buttercream. I decided to create buttercream swirl roses all over the cake. These I made two-tone by putting strawberry jam on the insides of the piping bag. I found this quite an easy to do actually and it looked really affective when completed. I will be doing this again.



The cake club itself was a fantastic event.

We held it at a brilliant baking shop Home and Kitchen just off Skipton high street. They opened up especially for us, provided tea and coffee and some great decorating demonstrations and talks about bakeware and cake decorating equipment.


Just look at the lovely china they provided for our cups of tea to wash down the cake.


The staff are all very knowledgeable and passionate about baking. I think many of our member went away knowing they could go in to the store and be confident to ask the staff for help and advice when shopping there. The demonstrations were really useful and provided some interesting ideas for decorating we may not have thought about before. They also stock some great little cake decorating tools to give easy but affective decorations.

We had some lovely decorated cakes bought along and I think it was enjoyed by all.
