The Baking Club
Love of a good slice of cake (either baking it or eating it)? Who doesn’t right? The Flaky Bakers Club was started as a way to find and connect fellow cake lovers and create a community of baking enthusiasts of all levels. A friendly cake community, open to everyone and aimed at those of us who have a passion for baking but admittedly aren’t always Pinterest perfect. With a monthly theme, a friendly gang of bakers ready to discuss biscuit vs cake, and lots of support, we celebrate the fails as much as the wins. Whether you want to sign up and share your bakes or simply get some recipe inspiration, take a browse…Join the Club
