Pleased to meet you Herman...

Still raining, but that's no problem because as of this morning I have a new friend!!

To cheer up my day, I popped round to see the lovely All4meggymoo and not only was I greeted with a cup of tea and a cheeky smile on such a miserable day but I was promptly  handed by a bowl of goo! 

Hello! bowl of goo! Knowing I like baking, All4meggymoo has given me the 'Herman the German Friendship Cake' challenge. "Cool beans!" I thought. What's this all about??

Apparently, Herman is a sourdough cake. He is to sit on my worktop for 10 days without a lid on. I CANNOT put him in the fridge or he will die and if he stops bubbling, he is DEAD! No pressure here then!! Eeek! I was never very good at keeping cyber pets alive and up until this year, I didn't think I had green fingers so what a challenge I face!

I am on 'Day 2' of the challenge as All4meggymoo had to divide her dough into four and hand out to four friends. So watch this space and I will update every day with Herman's progress. Wish me luck! 

EDIT :: Whoops! Silly me, you split the goo into four portions and hand out to three of your friends, not four. You'd be giving away your own yum-eee cake. Doh! 

In the meantime, if you'd like to learn more about the challenge, please follow the link above and I will leave you for this evening with my darling buds on my pear tree. I'm sure they are fruiting too early. The rain is obviously helping our gardens grow!
