Secret Wharfedale cake club is a recipe for friendship
6:50am Saturday 17th August 2013 in News
A cake club that meets at secret locations throughout Wharfedale is not just about the tasty treats – it is also place for people of all walks of life to get together and make new friends.
The Wharfedale ‘Clandestine Cake Club’ meets once a month, and invites members to bake a cake and bring it along to the latest meeting, each of which has a specific theme.
But to prevent ‘cake-crashers’ – non-members who come just for the cake – the venue is only revealed to members a few days before the event.
Clandestine cake clubs first started springing up in Leeds in 2010, and have since become an increasingly popular underground movement.
The idea has even spread as far as Bangalore and the US.
The group is always looking for new members, or venues to hold meetings, and anyone interested can visit clandestinecakeclub.co.uk/groups/ wharfedale to sign up.
