Afternoon Tea with Dr Annie Grey: The History of Cake

When Saturday, 12th Oct , 3.00pm
Where Morley Town Hall
Duration 2 hours
Price £7.50 (ticket includes afternoon tea)

Cake has sprung from Victorian kitchens to become a staple of life, enjoyed all over the country. Writer and resident food historian for BBC Radio 4’s The Kitchen Cabinet, Dr Annie Gray explores the history of cake, illustrated with satire, recipe book drawings, and evidence of cakes she has baked. From rich fruit to gluten-free; cake as comfort food to cake as architectural statement, you’ll never look at a Victoria Sandwich in quite the same way. Served up with afternoon tea made by theFriends of Morley Literature Festival to celebrate National Cake Week, stay for a chat with Lynn Hill, who’s Clandestine Cake Clubs have taken the world by storm. Lynn will be sharing a cake made to Annie’s favorite Victorian recipe. You’re in for a treat! Book online now or have a look at our booking page for alternative ways to buy tickets.

Bakeries, fill your windows with your lovely cakes, your customers will love them

Bake, Bake, Bake that cake and have lots of fun.


National Cake Week

No ordinary Victoria Sponge

10th – 16th October 2011

National Cake Week is all about baking a cake and getting together with family and friends. No competition, no judging, just having fun and eating lots of cake.

Pick a day in the National Cake Week to have your gathering. Invite people to bake a cake and bring it along to your party. Share in the joy of creating something so nice and wonderful as the humble cake.

Cupcakes have their special place in the world, but we shouldn’t forget there are some wonderful cakes out there. Recipes locked away in old books, new recipes never tried. The cake is screaming to have it’s say in the world. So lets give it the headline it deserves.

Let me know if you’re holding a National Cake Week Party and I’ll add it to the events page. I will need the Location -City, time and date. 

And remember.

It’s all about Cake.
