Last Sunday brought Leeds’ first ever “Cakely Run”! Ten lucky Baking Society members managed to grab themselves a ticket for the event that involved lots of cake, food, drinks and (of course…) fun!
The group started at Love Rouge bakery in Headingley where we were greeted with a variety of tantalising cupcakes. After ordering some some drinks we eagerly dug into the blueberry, Toblerone, lemon, cherry bakewell and raspberry flavours. It’s safe to say it was a tough choice to decide our favourite – they were all delicious!
Next, we headed to Froth and Fodder opposite the Parkinson Building for lunch. We were so spoilt to choice with everything from pulled pork sandwiches to a winter vegan stew! And, of course, more cake was on offer (no surprises there)! The selection included salted caramel gluten free brownie, peanut butter gluten free cake, white chocolate and raspberry gluten free brownie, coffee bar and ginger chocolate bar – yummy!
Finally we visited Just Grand! vintage tea room in the Grand Arcade, Leeds City Centre. By this point in time we were absolutely stuffed full of scrumptious food we were certain there was no chance of fitting anything else in. However, we quickly changed our minds once we saw what was in store for us! 3 fabulous cakes for us all to share, Guinness and chocolate cake, banana and caramel cake and Tunisian orange cake – suddenly our stomachs were rumbling again! Having scoffed all three cakes between us we were satisfied once more.
Our first ever Cakely Run was a booming success and the Baking Society Committee have vowed to organise another for next semester – so watch this space!
Lots of Cakely Love,
