I've made some wonderful friends through cake. It's pretty weird to think that had it not been for my move away from the muffin period and into the bundt obsession, I would never have started Bolton Clandestine Cake Club, and some of my closest friends would still be strangers.
I've baked for my friends for years. When I left my job of ten years, I made the Banoffee Pie Bundt, so it was only fitting that I took cake to my first day in my new job. This involved the creation of a brand new department, and I was lucky enough to be taking my team with me. We decided the best way to say hello to our new colleagues was by plying them with cake. At 7am on day one, I was icing a bundt in their kitchen. Happy days.
