CCC No 18 - Back to School Sweetie Favourites - South Lancashire CCC - Tootsies, Botany Bay, Chorley

Not to be confused with an Australian penal colony, South Lancashire Clandestine Cake Club paid a visit to Botany Bay near Chorley. Our August meeting was kindly hosted by Tootsies an amazing ice cream parlour in this retail mill, who serve some amazing looking ice cream sundaes and desserts, we had planned to hold the event in the garden area but as the weather had turned chilly we decided to re-locate inside to the cosy ice cream parlour instead.

The Cake selection

We were also fortunate to be joined by Lynn Hill for our event, the founder of the Clandestine Cake Club movement. Lynn was having a very cakey day by visiting Bolton cake club earlier in the afternoon but joining us for our meeting.

Our theme was a celebration of Back to School recollections and your favourite sweetie treats from the tuck shop. Members old and new arrived with some fabulous interpretations of the theme and we were pleased to welcome back chief cake taster Theon as well !

Wonderful cakes !

  • Liquorice Allsorts Cake
  • Dolly mixture cake
  • Parma Violet Cake
  • Rhubarb and custard cake
  • Sherbet Fountain Cake
  • Lemony Lemonade cake
  • Curly Wurly Cake
  • Chocoholic cake
  • Courgette and nut cake
Tootsies were great hosts catering to all our needs and the ice creams and the amazing array of cakes attracted lots of attention from the general public too.

We also had two members who got mixed up on the date but still baked some great cakes, a pick and mix cake and five centre bar cake.
