    Secret venues. Inspired themes. Fabulous cakes. Across the UK and beyond, thousands of home bakers have been meeting covertly in hidden locations with the same simple mission: bake, eat and gossip about cake. These are the members of the phenomenally popular Clandestine Cake Club - and now, for the first time, they share their baking secrets with you. The rules are quite clear: no cupcakes, no muffins, no brownies, pies or tarts. It's all about cake! With each event organised around a creative theme, the results are some of the most loved and inventive baked delights you'll ever eat. From classic teatime treats and chocolatey indulgences to global bakes and spectacular cake extravaganzas, you'll find inspiring recipes such as: Scrumptious Sticky Toffee Cake; Smoked Chilli Chocolate Cake; Blood Orange and Rosemary Loaf; Raspberry Cakewell; Rose, Rhubarb & Cardamom Cake; Chai-soaked Vanilla Sponge; a giant Lemon Fondant Fancy; and the unmissable five-tier Rainbow Cake; plus stunning photography and sneak-peek snaps from club events. At last, the secret is out and everyone is invited to join the Club.

    We tried one of the recipes ourselves, Elderflower Cordial Cake with White Chocolate Ganache and it caused Book Depository employees to drop everything and run to the kitchen...

  • Hide and Seek by David Carter

    Wed, 17 Oct 2012 10:32

    blog imageWe have a soft spot for pop-up books here at The Book Depository. Especially ones that take us on a creative hunt. David Carter is back with a super-cool new book!

    "A fish and a teardrop. Five black spots, four blossoms blue, and a T that is white. A heart and an arabesque. A smile, a black Q, and a reflection of you." These are just some of the hundreds of objects readers are invited to find in David Carter's latest art pop-up book, Hide and Seek.

    His previous art pop-up titles, One Red Dot, 600 Black Spots, and other bestsellers, have sold hundreds of thousands of copies around the world, asking readers to find a single image hidden within ten pop-up kinetic sculptures.

    With Hide and Seek, David has expanded the concept and now includes hundreds of images or words hidden within the pop-up landscapes, inviting readers to explore and discover something new with each visit.
