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.
