Scottish baking clubs
If you’re thinking of starting one, we encourage you to look at our blog, see pictures of past events and get planning your cakey get-together soon! We can vouch that they’re a lot of fun and great friendships made. We don’t have any firm rules and how many slices of cake you eat at an event, stays at the event!
We believe that we were the first cake club of this kind in the Britain. It might be that we were only the first in Scotland (we definitely were) but would be glad to step aside to that clam if there was a cake club in Britain that met up prior to April 2010.
Do let us know if you think you were the first cake club in the UK – we’ll happily give you credit!
Edinburgh – The Edinburgh Cake Ladies Mostly cakes, but also meet up socially for meals.
The Portobello Cake Club – no blog, only on twitter @Portycakeclub

West Lothian – West Lothian Baking Club Sweet and savoury baking.

Clandestine Cake Clubs in Scotland
Lynn Hill, who runs the Clandestine Cake Club in Leeds has a comprehensive directory of clubs in the UK (and beyond). Lynn was bowled over with how much cake we ate when she paid us a visit last year. We will only be listing Scottish clubs here.
