The venue may be a closely guarded secret but one thing is certain - when the Bury St Edmunds Clandestine Cake Club meets the baking is delicious.

The group gives cake ethusiasts the chance to socialise and share their innovative freshly baked creations.

However, members are not told where they will meet until a few days beforehand - fuelling the group’s clandestine ethos.

More than 150 similar groups have been set up across the country.

Helen Johnson, of Great Livermere, set up the Bury branch in May and has seen membership rise to about 20 members.

On Saturday, the group met in the Apex cafe and brought a series of treats with an ‘Autumn Bakes’ theme including a Swedish Apple cake, ginger and lemon as well as a lucious lemon layer.

Mrs Johnson said: “This is our fourth meeting so far.

“It gets bakers together and we all have common interests.

“It’s a really good social event from that point of view.”
