Cake! That's all really.

Warning! Do not attempt to read this post if you are abstaining from cake!

Our September offerings.

I don't get together with other crafters to sew, knit or crochet, which does look like such fun.What I have been doing every four weeks since September 2012 however, is meeting up with my sister, cousins and Aunt at one of ours homes to hold our Cake and Bake Club. We all simply enjoy baking and most importantly, eating. We are greedy (even though not everyone will admit it) I will though, I'm a greedy for cake and even though I don't always take the biggest piece it doesn't mean I don't want to, so there! 

My sister's Lemonade cake, want more!

 Any hoo, it's really just an excuse to get together without it having to be at some annual event or other. We have so much fun chatting about our efforts and writing down comments in our 'minutes' book.
My latest entry taken from the recipe below, delicious!

The host is responsible for writing down our thoughts and comments for each offering so they can be very cutting (get it?) about a particular cake, pie etc. Or they can be very kind and diplomatic depending on the host of the evening.

Salted caramel chocolate cake made by my cousin-yum.

We are becoming more critical as the months go by though, I think you could call it constructive criticism...I think, but, I do worry that we are just enjoying insulting each others efforts a little too much. We share the same sense of humour which I suppose can be a little hard to take if you aren't used to it. However we cry with laughing at each other, it's so exhilarating!  Laughter is such a great tonic, what makes you laugh until you cry?
