Blooming Great Tea Party for Marie Curie

23 Jun

When two of your great loves collide it’s fantastic. For me, this is spending time with folk I love and baking (or more accurately, eating) cake. Add to that raising money for charity and I’m in. Marie Curie are asking people to have friends and family over for tea and cake and raise money for charity. I’ll be holding mine on Saturday 25 June. If you fancy holding a tea party too, look at the Blooming Great Tea Party page. I plan on making a couple things to suit different tastebuds. Here’s my list: 

  • Tea and coffee (earl grey, builders tea, peppermint and filter coffee)
  • Scones with jam and Devon clotted cream
  • Pear and ginger cake with cream topping and a caramel glaze (recipe)
  • Biscuits with icing and flower decoration (inspiration)

127 more cakes, baking inspiration and recipes on my Cake Pinterest board. Also love this film by baking queen Suzy Pelta with Great British Bake Off’s Mel, they show you how to make marble cupcakes.


Party & Celebration Cakes – My First Clandestine Cake Club in Exeter

All the Cakes!

All the Cakes!

If you didn’t know, I love cake. I love to eat it, bake, make it for friends, ice cake and find new recipes for cake. So imagine my delight when I discover a club devoted to these activities. Fast forward 3 months later and I am the organiser for the Exeter and South Devon Clandestine Cake Club. The club is all about talking, eating and making friends with people who also share a slight cake obsession.

At my first Clandestine Cake Club there were 11 delicious cake (and I’m proud to say I had a taste of ALL 10!).

Here are the pictures.

The next Clandestine Cake Club for Exeter & South Devon will be in July. Fancy joining us? Visit the Exeter and South Devon Clandestine Cake Club Group >>
