I shall be baking a very plain square sponge cake with no flavour in it what so ever. This I will need to take to a baking class on Saturday 9th July in Ely Cambs. Where I will be adding flavours and coverings to create lovely little sponge delicacies to bring home. 9th July *
An early morning train will take me to Ely in Cambs for my baking class during which I shall be meeting up with Miss Sue Flay of The Secluded Tea Party where later, we will be enjoying some Afternoon Tea at Peacocks Tea Rooms in Ely. 10th July *
The Gent and I are going to Vintage Afternoon Teas in Manchester for a delightful afternoon Tea in Gwyn’s home. 13th July Is my birthday 3 score years plus 1. You do that maths 😉 I also have a meeting in Leeds about Tea, Cake and Art. 15th July *
Is my Tea Master Class in London. I’m looking forward to learning a lot more about tea. 17th July *
Once again the Gent and I will be going out for afternoon tea, this time to The Secret Tea Cup in North Yorkshire 19th July.
I am on a train again, this time for a return trip to Edinburgh for an evening cake event called #Edinclancake 2, organised by Alison of Edinburgh Cake Ladies. “Cakes in Edinburgh have no calories”, at least that’s what the Edinburgh Cake Ladies tell me. I love Edinburgh and will find any excuse to go back, especially if it involves cake. My senior rail card has come in very handy and my single ticket back from Edinburgh is costing only £7, so as a late birthday treat, I’ve upgraded to First Class costing only a few pounds more. Well I am travelling back on my own and it’s going to be a very long 4 hr journey, and I won’t arrive home until after 1am. 24th July
Is another Afternoon Tea at The Secret Tea Room. This time on a Sunday. 27th July Finds me in Bradford for a 1 hour Wake up to PR event organised by Approach PR 30th July Clandestine Cake Club in Kirkstall with a theme Layer Cake. The only connection it has to the film is the title. Only ingredients bought over the counter are to be used in the cakes for this Theme. 31st July Is a very important ‘Catch up meeting’ where cake will no doubt enter into the conversation. From this day onwards, life could take a very interesting turn. So there it is for July. Dominated by Tea and Cake. Somewhere in the middle of all that I shall try and spend time on my allotment. * part of my Tea and Cake Journey
