Last weekend South Lancashire Clandestine Cake club visited BB1 for Life a newly opened community coffee shop and community space in Blackburn city centre. The centre is on facebook and twitter and is hoping morph into a community hub for all in the city.
We were lucky that the Coffee shop is run by no-one other than Kate - Cake club organiser for Ribble Valley so our every need was catered for, the coffee was fabulous. So if you are in Blackburn pop in for a warm calming welcome, they are just adjacent to King Georges Hall.
Decorated in a relaxed folksy vibe the venue is instantly calming , with scaffold shelving you just instantly relax.
Our theme was to help inspire Kate as to what cakes should feature on her menu, as usual we had a fabulous selection of cakey delights. We all delighted in sharing cake and chats on a relaxed Saturday afternoon visit. We enjoyed the following
- Chocolate fudge cake - gluten free
- Apple crumble cake
- Cappucino cake
- Pineapple upside down cake
- Carrot and pecan cake
- Kardemummakaka - Norwegian Cardamon coffee cake
- Cherry and marzipan cake
- Coffee and walnut cake
- Orange cake
- Swiss Roll
