Batley’s first Clandestine Cake Club meeting proved to be a recipe for success.

Baking enthusiasts gathered at the Corner Cafe, Branch Road, on Sunday afternoon to showcase their tasty treats.

Members sign up to the club, find out when it will meet, and then receive an email giving details of the venue a couple of days in advance.

Angela Putterill, manager of the Corner Cafe, said: “It went really well and everyone was in a jovial mood.

“It was great to bring something different to Batley.”

Cooked up by founder Lynn Hill, the cake club boasts more than 6,000 members worldwide.

Sue Jones, who runs the Spen Valley branch, said: “It is more than just cake but about meeting strangers and leaving with friends.”

Twenty four bakers with guests attended and brought a variety of cakes.

The rules state cup cakes are banned and it has to be cake, which can serve from eight to 12 people.

At the end, members divide up what cake is left to share with family and friends.

Register as a member at www.clandestinecakeclub.co.uk and then got the Spen Valley group to sign up.
