As it was just a few days before Easter, I thought that the theme should be somehow "egg-ey". And as Londoners were just mad about the recent Diamond Jubilee Big Egg Hunt everywhere in the streets, I thought it could be nice to have our own "Baking Club Egg Hunt". A day packed with chocolate eggs, cakes, kids running everywhere and lots of sun (another distant memory...sun...).
Here are the pictures of the day with a list of the cakes made by everyone. If I forgot someone, please let me know!

Now, you'll may be interested to know that the next Baking Club will be a special one too. As The Queen is celebrating her Diamond Jubilee, I think it could be nice to take part in the celebration and have a "Diamond Jubilee Baking Club". So this time, I will need you to come up with "royal" recipes, whether you use The Queen favourite flavour or you add some festive decoration to your cake. I'm sure you will come up with brilliant ideas.
The Baking Club will be held on Sunday 10th June afternoon and the location will be announced on your invitation. If you'd like to receive one, please email me at email@example.com
These "special" Baking Club events are another way of experience the Baking Club. Everyone brings a homemade cake or savoury dish and we share it all together. But I would like to organise more regular meetings in the future, with a smaller group of people, as we did at the beginning. A recipe, four or five pairs of hands, a kitchen and some good fun shared together. Some of you have already proposed their kitchen to hold the meetings so I'll be contacting you to organise everything soon.
In the meantime, I think a better way to share our recipes would be to make a little "book" with all the recipes presented. So, for the Jubilee Baking Club, it would be great if you could send me the recipe you're going to prepare as soon as you know it. I'll try to put everything together and print them so that you can all have a copy on the day. What do you think?
I hope you enjoyed the Easter Baking Club and that you'll come to Jubilee one!
And if you haven't participated yet, come and join us!
