Having been an avid fan of the Clandestine Cake Club for a while now I was excited when I found out that they were bringing out a cookbook.

This is a lovely book. It contains 120 recipes, each of which comes with a short introduction detailing the origins of the cake as well as an accompanying photo which I know is essential to some cooks as they like to know what their finished cake should look like. On the whole the list of ingredients for each cake is not too long (although of course there are a couple where the ingredients list is long) and you should be able to find everything in your local supermarket. The instructions for each recipe are laid out in bullet point format and they are easy to follow.

If you enjoy making cakes for yourself, your friends or your family you will love this book as it contains original cakes that I have not found in any of the many other cookbooks I own.

Please find the recipes found in this book listed below. At the time of writing this review no 'look inside' feature was available for this book. I appreciate that in the future Amazon may provide such a feature for this book.

This time last year I was bored. Really bored. Then I discovered the Clandestine Cake Club. Within a year it has transformed by life beyond recognition. I now run the Bolton branch; a tantalising mixture of bakers, all giddy about cake. Some always had the bug for baking. Most had little confidence in their own ability. Others heard of our venture and baked for the first time to join us. By September I was stood in front of the other organisers in Leeds doing a lecture on bundt cakes, and now we have a book.

We meet once a month in secret locations only revealed to attendees a few days before the event. We bake a cake on a specified theme and try a bit of each others. What is left is taken home in the cake 'trough' (as it's known in our house) and enjoyed later.

Nothing gives me more pleasure to review our very first book. Our creator Lynn Hill has worked incredibly hard to build the club up from a group of friends in a Leeds cafe to a menagerie of clubs spanning the globe. She sat back, and saw that it was good.

At cake club we love nothing more than to sit and have a natter over (several) slices of cake and a brew. We chat about our cakes, ideas, recipes and our general gluttony. It's not a competition. It's hugely supportive, and I can genuinely say that I have met some wonderful new friends. This is what life is all about. Sharing what you have with those around you in a happy environment.

I know Lynn has worked incredibly hard on this book. She gathered the recipes, made countless trips to the publisher in London, tested cakes (well you have to...) and probably the hardest thing of all... had to keep the recipes a secret for ages!

When I received the book I was flabbergasted. It's absolutely beautiful.

Had I seen this book before purchasing I would not have bought it. I couldn't understand after looking through it, just how it had achieved so many 5 star reviews; looking at them more closely I soon realised most of them had been written by Clandestine Cake Club Members and/or contributors from the book. Whilst the members might find this book wonderful I strongly disagree.

The book itself is hardly inspiring, the photos simple, boring and amateur. The recipes themselves are no better, many of them are your boring bog standard cakes you would find in any baking/cake book. Some recipes are overly simple (I have nothing against simple recipes, I just believe they need to return great results, these do not) other recipes are overly complicated calling for more ingredients than are really necessary. Some recipes refer to terms or techniques without explaining what they are or how the reader is to achieve them - a major issue for anyone just setting out in baking.

Out of the entire book the number of recipes I am excited to try can be counted on one hand.

Had I properly read the reviews and seen the book before ordering I would not have purchased it. I have many other far superior books to this one that present much better and more exciting cakes.

I run the Durham Dales Clandestine Cake Club in NE England and have a copy of this book

I have two recipes featured in there too, some may say this review is biased but you can make your own mind up.

The recipes have all been contributed by home cooks who are avid cake bakers.

So many delicious recipes and they all actually look like the photos in the book- unlike some cookery books.

The book is well produced and can be a coffee table book and also a well used cake recipe bible.

It has information about what happens at a Clandestine Cake Club events and also has a helpful part at the back of the book for what to do if your cake doesn't quite cook to plan.

All the ingredients for the recipes are easily accessible in supermarkets and if you are a budget baker or a blow the budget baker I'm sure you'll find a delicious cake to bake to impress those around you.

If you love cake and beautifully produced books get this book and look for a clandestine cake club near you so you can meet other like minded people.

Now which cake do I make next ......
