CCC No 8 - 1st Birthday At Coffee @ the Carringtons

YEAH WE ARE 1 !!!!

Happy birthday South Lancashire Clandestine Cake Club.

For our birthday meeting we were lucky enough to have snaffled a venue in  non other than Tour de France winner and Olympic gold medal winner "Bradley Wiggans" home turf - Eccleston near Chorley.

Coffee @Carrington is a cosy local coffee shop in the small shopping centre at the heart of this thriving and now famous village, which of course is now enhanced with its own GOLD postbox. Cakes ranged from "Ugly Betty" (who wasn't in the least bit ugly) to Vodka and Orange and everything in between.

We were warmly welcomed by the staff for our first birthday event, were we celebrated with 11 different cakes, we were also fortunate to welcome members old and new to join in the fun and cake eating !

Lots of cake and highly quality refreshments were consumed and a good time was had by all, we even managed to persuade a couple of passing locals to enjoy a few slices of the delectable cakes and as for the GOLD postbox it was very very popular.

If you are ever in the Eccleston area and fancy a coffee, you will be warmly welcomed at Coffee @Carrington.

My cake was a butterscotch cake with caramel encased blackberries to decorate. This is a Fiona Cairns creation, other than the blackberries and can be found in her Birthday Cake Book.

What a gorgeous spread Linzi and congratulation on a 1st birthday. Really like the sound of your cake and your caramel encased blackberries. Are you going to blog the recipe?

As I'm on holiday, I'm getting to attend my 3rd CCC in September, so already wondering what to make.
