Favourite Bakes in Fife - 23rd August

It was the first gathering of the Fife Baking Club and I have to admit that I was rather nervous. Even though names and bakes had been put forward I still was panicking that I would be sitting alone with my cake.

I needn't have worried though as twelve fellow Fifers made their way to Reuben's Deli in Dunfermline.

The meeting was held in the back section of Reuben's Wine Store where Richard made us all very welcome. The Wine Store only opened up at the end of 2011 and the room is a great location for meetings and get togethers.

As this was our first meeting rather than go with a theme I decided to ease everyone in gently and suggested bringing along favourite bakes. There was a wide range of cakes, muffins and even a sun dried tomato bread which was perfect break to the sugar rush that we were all experiencing.

 Two hours of eating and chatting went very quickly and before we knew it, it was time to pack up our Tupperware boxes with goodies and to head home. A great night was had by all and I am looking forward to the next meeting in October. Now to find a celebrity to make a guest appearance. Wondering if Colin Firth is available...
