A GROUP of secret cake bakers visited the Wildfowl and Wetlands Trust site at Welney on Saturday, having created some magnificent creations with the theme of flora and fauna.
Members of the Clandestine Cake Club from the Downham Market area were only told of the location a few days before their visit, and were challenged to plan and make a cake that fitted wildlife site.
Entries included a hummingbird cake by group leader Marie-Anne Crawley, a beehive chocolate honey cake and a lemon meringue barn owl cake.
Emma Brand, Events and Marketing Officer for WWT Welney said: “Having arranged for the Clandestine Cake Club to hold a meeting here at WWT Welney we were interested to see how many people would think of our wetlands when planning their cakes.
“Although we are most famous for the thousands of swans and ducks that visit Welney in the winter; spring as equally inspiring in terms of wildlife. “‘Hundreds of birds moving North for the summer include the swallows and yellow wagtails migrating from Africa, the wetland wildflowers coming into bloom and insects emerging in the warming summer sun.”
