Love cakes?

The Clandestine Cake Club (CCC) is all about baking, meeting, sharing and talking about cake.  It’s a simple and sociable concept – bake a cake, go along to the secret venue, meet new people and enjoy lots of cake, and even take some home. The ‘clandestine’ element comes from the fact that you only get told the exact location of each event a day before it takes place.

Fernie’s inaugural event takes place on Tuesday at 7p.m, however only club members will be given the location, and only on the same day as the event.

What is really great about this club is that it appeals to men and women of all ages and not just the people that like to bake; as a member you can bring a non baking guest along who just gets to enjoy the eating and chatting part.

At Fernie’s first meeting people can bring along any style of cake, but it must be one that can be shared. Pies, cup-cakes, muffins and cookies for example are not permitted. Once the club becomes more established it is common that the events will be themed, there have been chocolate only affairs, ‘free from’ events to cater for allergies and intolerances, even literary or movie based themes.

The concept was started in the North of England just a few years ago and there are now more than 167 clubs in the UK and internationally. Fernie is only the fourth Canadian group to be set up, and has been brought here by a British ex pat, Rachel Cline, who moved to the valley from England with her family last fall.

“I was aware of several clubs set up in my home town of Leeds, however as I knew I was emigrating to Canada I did not want to start anything new at that time, but I thought it would be a great idea to bring to Fernie,” said Cline. “It’s also a great way to meet more people and bring different elements of the population together.”

The group will meet at different venues around Fernie each month.

To find out where the event will take place you need to join the club. Email Rachel Cline at rachecline@gmail.com or call her at 250-946-6322.
