The Clandestine Cake Club – A Year Of Cake

Posted on September 10, 2015

Have you heard of The Clandestine Cake Club? Well in their own words:  We’re all about cake! We bake it, we eat it, and we talk about it. Our clubs meet in secret locations all over the world. But this isn’t your average club because with us, you really can have your cake and eat it.
