Clandestine cake open secret

The last time Pauline hosted the Loire Valley's 'Clandestine Cake Club' in our little house it was a bit of a squeeze but as it was July we were able to have the participants spill out into the garden. 

Agreeing to host in October may have been a bit of challenge but after a good number of people had confirmed their attendance we checked with Miki the owner of 'Le Bourg' if we could use the house for the afternoon and she generously agreed...

and it proved a good decision.

The theme for the event was 'If I knew you were coming I'd have baked a cake' 

As ever there was a very good selection of tasty gateaux .

Each baker had to say a few words as to why they had baked their particular cake as their 'signature bake'.Above is Jean , who started it all here in the Loire Valley, giving the history of her 'Guinness cake'.

As it happened we had a beautiful October afternoon for hosting,
