National Cake Week!

Now I have to say that I didn't even realise that there is a National Cake Week...but apparently there is and this year it runs from 7th - 13th October. This wonderful celebration of cake started quite recently in June 2011 by Lynne Hill the founder of the Clandestine Cake Club.

National Cake Week is all about celebrating cake in all its glory....whether baking, sharing or eating...its time to enjoy and celebrate good old fashioned cake!

Running along side National Cake Week is a cake baking competition....all you need to do is bake a cake and enter it on online! Simples!

Now we all know that here at the Tea With Me and Friends blog we love to eat cake....but we also love to bake cakes and so I got baking! I have entered the following cake....my Blackberry Mini Marvel......

Piled high with fresh blackberries - perfect for afternoon tea!
This is a 5inch vanilla sponge cake, which has been layered together with freshly whipped cream and my homemade blackberry jam. I have topped the cake off with more cream and a pile of blackberries picked at my local park!
I'd love it if you could pop by the National Cake Week website and vote for me. The competition ends at 8pm on the 13th October.
If you are celebrating National Cake Week we'd love to know how!
Thanks for popping by today,
