Baking to relax ! Sheffield Sewing Bee Cakes

Magnificent effort again by Sheffield members of the Clandestine Cake Club. We were hosted by Annies, haberdashery, fabric & sewing shop who let us show of our cakes in their sewing class area !! Lashings of tea we had 5 bakers ! Here are the cakes !

Karens  Bee cake , sponge with Date Savvy , with Honey buttercream & Date Savvy & honey syrup.

Danis Marzipan coated Battenberg cake. She tried 2 methods one with a special tin for 2 different colour mixes, the other baking 2 separate cakes , then cutting & assembling the checks. The second method is recommended.

Carolynns vanilla & Lemon checkerboard cake , with a mini lemon cake assembled from the remaining bits .

What’s in the box ? Louise had some help from Imrans takeaway on Abbeydale Rd as her box was collapsing en route & he provided stickers !!

Annes Honey Beer cake , made from a date & sultana compote, ground almonds too & 500 ml of honey dew beer, with a banana & rum buttercream topping.

Louise made a Honey Bee cake with a honeycomb topping & stripy bee interior. In the spirit of CCC she had 3 goes with different black colourings. She recommended Sugarflair black gel which she bought on e bay. She used honey, instead of vanilla essence in the buttercream.

Here are the inside shots !!
