CCC no 20 - Strictly come baking at Cakes by Ruth in Chorley.

For our 20th event for South Lancashire Clandestine Cake Club we paid a visit to a newly opened celebration cake and cake decorating shop in Chorley town centre. Cakes by Ruth is the home of talented cake decorator Ruth Potts and her lovely shop is a colourful addition to Lancashire's favourite market town.


Inspired by the new series of "Strictly" we had chosen the theme of "Strictly come baking !" for our evening event. Our bakers inspired as ever came up with a great selection of cakes.

Despite a few no shows on the night (I try not take this personally !), we had an enjoyable event enjoying a lovely range of cakes and chatting generally about cakes and baking with Ruth.

Our cake selection featured

  • Waltzing mathilda cake - a gorgeous spicy bundt cake

  • Dancing Dolly cake - lots of buttercream, sponge and jam topped off with a dolly

  • Torta Mojada - Argentinian Wet cake - a moist decadent chocolate cake with citrus layers

  • Lucious Lemon glitter ball cake - lemon sponge with lemon curd, meringue and fresh cream, topped off with Lemon and white chocolate silver cake pops.

  • Tango'd cake - a freshy zesty orange layer cake

  • You've been tango'd - a orange and chocolate confection, very moist and moreish.
You can find Cakes by Ruth on St Georges Street, in Chorley town centre, the shop stocks a great range of decorating materials and of course Ruth can supply any celebration cake needs you may have.

A massive thanks goes to Ruth for hosting our event and opening up specially on a cold November night for our meeting.
