Amy (master baker) from Bonjour Cupcake organised the event and made the most wonderful carrot cake with meringue frosting. She chose a 'light/healthy' theme for the January club so we all had to think of ways to add fruit and reduce sugar but still make some tasty treats. I made some rather lame cherry oat bites because my baking skills are pretty poor and I also made some seeded brown bread and brought some light cheese for a savoury option.
All the bakes were so tasty, I ended up taking a little selection home for my family to try.
Gwdihw was a great choice of venue as it's really informal and has a great selection of teas and coffees to go with the cake. All the bloggers who attended are lovely and talkative so if you're nervous about attending the bake club, please don't be. It was really relaxed and we would love to see a few more faces at the next event.
I hope the wonderful Bake Club is a huge success in 2014 and beyond. Who's coming to the next one?! The theme for the event on the 22nd is 'French' so start practicing those Mille-feuille, macarons and tarte tatins.
