The Clandestine Cake Club Cookbook : 120 Sensational Recipes from Britain's Most Famous Cake Club
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.

About Lynn Hill
Retired Yorkshirewoman Lynn Hill founded the Clandestine Cake Club in 2010, hosting its first gathering in a secret location in Leeds city centre. The club's initial popularity led her to turn it into a 'franchise', encouraging others to host their own events under the Clandestine Cake Club banner. Takeup spread like wildfire and there are now over 200 affiliated clubs in the UK and abroad, with more registering every month. Lynn has been featured on The One Show, Lorraine, The Alan Titchmarsh Show and BBC Radio 4, as well as in The Times, Daily Mail, Grazia, Woman's Own and the Huffington Post. She has appeared several times at The Cake and Bake Show. Lynn runs the club online via www.clandestinecakeclub.co.uk and Twitter, connecting daily with members, bakers and fellow cake lovers.
