Loire Valley Clandestine Cake Club

Yesterday we attended the latest meeting of  The Loire Valley Clandestine Cake Club hosted by Jim and Pauline in Barrou. What a novelty it was...

We contributed a bomb and some poisonous fungi!!

Others are shown below and what a magnificent set of cakes they were. Photos don't do justice to the imagination and skill which had gone into the making of them.

One or two had suffered melt down due to the heat (sadly Barbie was one of them!) but despite this the display was wonderful.

Barbie was struggling to maintain her composure so the sooner we got down to business (eating the cakes) the better.

My bomb was filled with shrapnel in the form of smarties but unfortunately it failed to detonate with the desired intensity. More "soft centre" than shrapnel!

Once everyone had eaten their fill (and more) it was out to the courtyard to take a welcome drink and relax...

Another splendid afternoon with good cake and the best of company.

NB It is 15 months since Jean started the Loire Valley branch of the Clandestine Cake Club!! Where did that go? and how many calories have we all eaten in cake!!!

I'm sure Sally won't mind if we show Barbie before her hot flush...
Splendid!!

Someone seems to have drawn a blank in one of the pictures...
I'm referring to the white Darth Vader between Colin and Jim's Pauline....
I presume they ate too much of Simon's "popcorn surprise"!!?
So now they've gone over to the light side.... ;-}

I'm very impressed with the standard of cakes - very good! Barbie is quite something and your bomb and fungi are very creative!
