Cakes, bakes and things to make

Our first meeting is less than a week away (19th April, 7.30-9.00pm, Round Tower at the Black Swan Arts Centre in case you've missed my other bajillion mentions!) is primarily cake based. Yippee. We hope to see you there and if you're coming along then please bring a cake.
But what to bake?

Victoria Sponge
Are you brave enough to bake a Viccy Sponge for our first meeting? Here is the official recipe from the WI (not on the WI website as they've just updated so here's a random Lurpak link).

Chocolate cake
Yes please. And this one from Nigella is 'very easy' apparently. Even better!

Carrot cake
Delia online digs out a recipe from the archives for a foolproof carrot cake.

Brownie magic
If you don't fancy a cake how about some kind of tray bake? Brownies are never a bad choice.

Hmm the list is pretty much endless. I'm going to go and research the Internet for more cake porn.

Looking forward to seeing you at our first meeting - and eating cake of course :)
