Bubbles - a sign of yeast at work aerating my batter. It's called Hermann. No really! It's the German friendship cake mixture I received from my daughter's boyfriend's mother yesterday. Over the next 10 days I'll be nurturing Hermann, stirring, and feeding him until he's ready to be baked. But before he goes into the oven I'll be dividing him into 4 portions, three of which I'll be giving away to friends. Hermann will live on!
