Well, after a month of moaning about the rainy weather, Summer arrived this weekend and of course we all reverted to moaning about the heat instead!

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.

June Baking Club Theme
The baking club is currently taking a short break for summer while we plan for the rest of the year! But please keep baking. keep tagging us and keep checking back. We’ll be back soon!
