At last weeks http://edinburghcakeladies.wordpress.com/ meeting at www.earthy.co.uk I had the opportunity to meet Kirsteen who had travelled through from Glasgow to attend the Year of the Cake meeting and find out more about setting up a similar club in the West. Kirsteen had been hooked up with another cake fan Alison by the ECL and she was through to find out first hand what makes the ECL events so popular.
I had already been chatting to Alison via Twitter about WLBC and how I had got it up and running so it was great to hear that they were going ahead. Kirsteen was keen to know why I had chosen to start a baking club rather than a cake club. I explained that as much as I love ECL and I have met some really lovely people I was inspired by the Great British Bake Off to try different types of baking and by widening the remit of the club it will allow me and those who came to our meetings to be challenged to try different types of bakes.
Please check out the Glasgow Baking Club website at http://glasgowbakingclub.wordpress.com/ and wish them well with their new venture. Remember to let any friends who you think might be interested know.
