Bakers enjoyed a cup of tea and a slice of cake.

The theme of the Stamford Clandestine Club’s April meeting was quench your thirst and there were 19 cakes baked with beverages in mind.

Eight cakes were non-alcholic, including lemonade, coke, Earl Grey and green tea, versus 11 alcoholic cakes, which included cider, Guinness, amaretto, snakebite and black and pina colada.

Each month the club is held at a different venue, which is kept a secret until the last minute. The April meeting was held at the Bertie Arms pub in Uffington and was sponsored by Yorkshire Tea, which provided tablecloths, a teapot, cups, and a big bag of teabags.

Club organiser Sophie Douglas said it was a great meeting and added: “What better way to celebrate a beverage-based bake than with a refreshing cup of tea.”
