Week 12 Chocolate Meetup

This was our last meeting during the teaching period at university – The C.A.K.E. committee decided to hold a fabulous, exciting event for the last time in the semester. The theme for the event was…well, you guessed it: CHOCOLATE!

To make the event extra special, we have decided that on top of the wonderful bakes that our members usually bring, we would also purchase several cakes from Brunetti (aka that notorious dessert cafe, that tempts you every time you walk past) as well as the newly introduced vegetarian restaurant Mantra Lounge, to accommodate the health needs of more members and make sure they have their cake and eat it too! They were a big hit, along with several other heavenly chocolate treats that some members have brought along.

We’d like to thank everyone who attended the meeting, for making it one of the most memorable events to date!

Brunetti’s Chocolate Cakes bought by the committee. They are definitely notorious for a reason – those were delicious! 20141021_121553  20141021_121633

Below is the raw vanilla & chocolate cheesecake we’ve purchased from Mantra Lounge. It wasn’t disappointing at all despite the lack of dairy and gluten – perfect for meeting several dietary health requirements. The texture was extremely creamy!  20141021_121642

Once again, thanks to all of our members that have spent their time attending our last event for the semester! We hope that everyone enjoyed the wonderful afternoon and went home with a satisfying sweet tooth!

Joint event with T-society

Yesterday, we had a joint event with T-society, a club that absolutely loves tea! The theme of the meeting was ‘Tea for Two’, where we baked delicious treats that goes wonderfully well with tea. Unfortunately, due to academic commitments, not all of us were able to join T-society this time. Nevertheless, we had a great chat with T-society members and immensely enjoyed the lovely afternoon tea.

Halloween Meeting!

With the recent election of new executive members, we were able to successfully organise our very first event, which was rather exciting for us! We would like to thank everyone for the overwhelming support, especially from the 2014 committee – you guys are the stepping stone of our baby steps, and we could not have done them without your help.

Many members have attended the meeting with delectable baked goods, which was enlightening to see. We were very impressed with the way everyone expressed their creativity, which epitomized both ideas of creepy and delightful; essential to halloween, of course. We truly appreciate the effort you guys have put into making these!

Much love to all, and hope to see you all soon!
