Cake Club has started!!

Well, at last had time to bake!!!
Decided Cake Club at the theatre had to start, so arrived with a lemon cake which disappeared very quickly!!
Just basic sponge mix but I add a dessertspoonful of lemon oil which adds great flavour and keeps the cake really moist. Split the sponges and filled with lemon curd and lemon buttercream. Had some jelly lemon slices in the cupboard so used them up - they really take me back to my childhood and cakes my Grandma Holden used to bake.
I've asked the cast of 'The Game' to put in requests for next week's cake so will let you know what the coice for Salisbury week will be!!
Had a lovely time visiting Lorraine Kelly and Phillip and Holly at This Morning.
They all make you feel so welcome and really help plug the play which is going really well and has got great reviews, thankfully!!
Phil suggested I come in to do a cake club for them, jokingly, but I think it's a great idea and would love to do it - so who knows.
Great that he mentioned my Sticky Toffee Pudding recipe that's now used in John Torode's restaurant Smiths after he loved it on Celebrity Masterchef. I'm thrilled but I bet I don't get a credit!!!
