As if the thought of a three-day weekend wasn't sweet enough, my younger sister organised the inaugural Vainilla Cake Club session.
I helped her out with her logo, cake banners and labels. Going for a modern and minimalist look, the 'V' and 'A' represent cakes slices and the 'A' from CAKE symbolizes someone helping him or herself to a yummy slice.
Modelled after secret supper clubs, we each gave a token donation of $10, which truly is a serious steal for what we got. If I did a similar event, I might have to pay people to eat my cakes instead.
"How about a spot of tea?"
This is obviously not a cupcake; obviously a last-minute change in plans.
I love coffee desserts so for me, this was pretty much a straight up no-nonsense cake that I could wake up to everyday. And there are walnuts too... Brain food!
As someone who would rather have bananas over made-with-bananas products, I was surprised by how much I liked the Banoffee Cheesecake. Toffee-drenched bananas nestled between creamy decadence and moreish digestive crust; at the end of the day, I'm all about the crust, honey.
For those who like to keep it airy fairy, there was a Victoria Sponge Strawberry Balsamic Cake.
Love love love orange, citrusy cakes and this was effing delicious.
So easy to down a couple of these poppers.
The Sticky Toffee Cake might not look as pretty as the other cakes but it had one thing going for it - an always-warm toffee that begs to be drizzled over any dessert. We ended up drizzling the toffee sauce over everything and were pretty much high on toffee after a while.
Can't wait for the next Vainilla Cake Club session!
