Time for another Glasgow Baking Club meeting! It felt like an absolute age since out last sunny picnic in the park meet up – gone are the bright evenings and warm weather – so it was great to see everyone again. What better way to spend a Sunday afternoon than with good cake and good chat?
This months meeting marked full year since I first joined the lovely baking ladies (and sometimes gents) as we were back to our pink theme in honour of breast cancer awareness month. We also all put in a donation and raised almost 100, again not a bad effort for a Sunday afternoon! Earlier that day I had been out at Glasgow Green to watch a friend finish his 10k…so some of us run for charity, other eat cake for charity! As long as it’s for a good cause I don’t think it matters.
We all gathered in a fairly new (well, new to me since I don’t frequent those areas in a half mile radius of my old uni if I can help it!) cafe at St Georges Cross called No. 1 Chocolate Factory. It’s a really lovely cafe, really light and bright, as it takes up the full corner at Woodlands Road. The cafe also runs chocolate making courses which definitely sounds like something I should look in to. (more…)
