    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...

  • A Download a Day

    Thu, 24 Mar 2011 13:05

    blog imageYou may not know it but we have thousands of free eBooks to download on the site. So, we thought we'd use this great resource and highlight a book-a-day, monday to friday, that had some kind of resonance with current events. Being in Windsor as we are, and after offering another free download recently, the monarchy and the Royal Wedding is somewhat on our minds. As an antidote, today we have this Thomas Carlyle classic to download for free. An account of the French Revolution published in 1837, not quite living memory in those days but close. Anyway, let's hope Will & Kate don't go the way of poor Louis and Marie Antoinette but given the times and the last Tory budget, you never know... Enjoy!
