'Showstoppers' at The Royal & Derngate Theatre

On Monday, 15th April, the stage was set for an epic performance by our Northants CCC members and, to say the least, our ‘Showstoppers’ brought the house down with cakes in every size, shape and flavour.  Thanks to member Lorraine, we met at The Royal & Derngate Theatre in Northampton Town Centre. The room size was just perfect for the 35 or so that attended and we even had our own staffed bar. Before delving in to the amazing display of show-stopping bakes, the theatre’s Operations Manager, Rich, welcomed us and, quite unexpectedly, told us that they had also arranged a special ticket discount for us on a variety of future shows. Such a nice surprise! 

So, on to the stars of the show, our cakes! We had a Lime and Green Madeira, a Coffee, Chocolate and Hazelnut cake, a Lemon and Raspberry cake, a Black Forest Gateau, a Popcorn cake, a Toffee Shock cake, a Caramel cake, a Chocolate Rocky Road Cake, a German Chocolate cake, an ‘Alice in Wonderland’ cake, a Dark Chocolate Orange & Marmalade cake, a Chocolate and Strawberry Trellis cake, a Victoria ‘Over the Rainbow’ cake, a Chocolate Raspberry cake, a Box of Chocolates cake, a Chocolate cake with salted caramel frosting, a Belgian Truffle cake, a Chocolate and Caramel layer cake and an Almond Bakewell with Raspberries cake. 

Oh I do hope I haven’t left one off the list - and a HUGE round of applause must go to everyone as they were all so scrumptiously show-stoppingly spectacular!
