Workshop interview #2: Cake Club’s Sugar-fuelled Cake Decorating Party
It's just two weeks until Indietracks!! Today we’re chatting to Verity about the sugar-rush-tastic cake decorating workshop taking place on the Saturday afternoon at this year’s Indietracks.
Hiya, tell us a bit about yourself and the idea behind the workshop
I’m Verity, from Bristol and I believe that cake is one of the best things in life. I noticed a distinct lack of it at Indietracks last year so someone came up with the bright idea that I should rectify the situation.
What can people expect from the workshop?
The name says it all. We’ll be bringing a variety of scrumptious home-made cupcakes, icing paraphernalia and sweets. We want everyone to come in, decorate a cake, make a mess, eat it, and feel terribly pleased with themselves and their mad decorating skills. We may even provide a few extra goodies for those less-enthusiastic cake decorators.
What are you most looking forward to this year at Indietracks?
I’m looking forward to making new friends, riding the train, and the bands, of course. Rather excited about Maths and Physics Club and the Hidden Cameras. Oh, and the cake. Everyone should be excited about the cakes.
Have you been to Indietracks before? Any interesting stories to divulge?
Only last year, but it was magnificent. Everything about it. My cake colleague has never been, and doesn’t even really know what indiepop is (!). What a treat he’s in for.
Do you have any festival or camping tips?
Always eat at least two cakes at a festival. It helps absorb the cider.
That's sound advice, thanks! Here’s a link to Verity’s Cake blog: http://cakemakes.tumblr.com/
