Friendship Cake ~ Day 1

Ever heard of Herman the German Friendship Cake?  My mom made something similar when we were kids so when a work colleague offered me a portion of the 'batter', I said yes please!

Today is Day 1 - transfer the 'batter' into a bowl and cover with a tea towel. 
Done.  Team GB tea towel no less!

Day 2 tomorrow - stir. 
How easy!! 

Day 3 to Day 10 -- I will need to look at the 10 day schedule to be sure when to stir and when to add various ingredients but how cool is this!!?  I can't wait for Day 9 when I divide it up and give away 3 portions and Day 10 when I can bake a cake with the last portion of 'batter'!  Can't decide if I will make a chocolate cake or a lemon drizzle cake....

Stay tuned :)

I can't believe "Hermann" is still doing the rounds (btw. we skip the "the German " part in Germany). Be sure to have a good friend to take over - after 3 or 5 or 7 cakes you won't want to do another one, you will be very much lookign forward to something else...

I love this! I think I will start one here. Thanks for reminding me of another "Mom" thing this morning too!
