Wellington Bake Club: Week 1

As part of Wellington On a Plate there is the Wellington Bake Club. At my new job we have put together a group of bakers called The Cheap Tarts.

I’m always up to do some baking. At my job in Sydney there were a few of us who liked to bake, so we had a few bake days there. When presented with the opportunity to do the same thing in Wellington, I said yes. I’m always up to do some baking and a challenge.

A challenge it will be as I don’t currently have an oven…

Whoops.

I’ll be baking at my in-laws for the few weeks of the bake club and, while it is still not the fully-stocked kitchen I have packed away in boxes at my parents’ place, it does have an oven.

Week one of the Wellington Bake Club has been with the first challenge to make a slice.

I made my Hazelnut Fudge Slice. Although I did not win my colleagues’ vote (coming in second), I did win the popular vote.

So that is week one for the Wellington Bake Club. Next week we are to make a veggie cake. I’m a bit stumped there. I don’t think I have ever made a cake with vegetables in before. I know I have made kumara muffins before, but muffins aren’t cake.

Guess I better get perusing Pinterest…
