Hello fellow baker! Well, I’m glad you’re here, but that aside you’re probably wondering what all this is about. At this moment in time, so am I. So let me explain.
Singing Hinnies and Fat Rascals – that’s not a sweeping generalisation, nor (I promise) should you be offended and planning to hurt me. You might be familiar with cake clubs, they’ve become really popular of late, but this, this my friend is different.
This… is a baking club.
A subtle difference, yes? Actually, it’s quite a chunky difference. Because the rules are, there are no rules.
I’ve been baking for years, seriously for around three now, and always fancied joining a club but geez, rules ahoy! None of this, must be that, follow the theme, no judging, one guest, yadda yadda.
That’s great for some folk but not for me, as soon as I see ‘Don’t bring X‘ I can think of NOTHING other than bringing X. A pie. A flan. A danish pastry. Mmm, pastry…
After some debate, singing hinnies & fat rascals was born as a rule-free bake club. The plan currently is to do some research with you guys ahead of our first party in September, somewhere in the North East of England. This is where I need YOUR help – without you it’s just me eating my own baked goods in public!
So, do you like the idea? The name? What kind of venues? Do you like to compete? Should we try to get bake-y speakers? Mix sweet and savoury? Have themes? Go mad, tell me everything and let your imagination go mad.
