Well believe it or not I have managed to keep Herman The German Friendship cake alive for 10 whole days and this morning I finally got to baking.
Instead of making Herman into a cake though, I decided to be a little adventurous and make him into muffins because that way it would be easier to share.
I also substituted the apples, raisins and cinnamon for cocoa and choc chips.
The end product was I am told very tasty , however true to form I did burn my cupcakes but I was able to quickly camouflage that with some choc icing .
It has been a lot of fun having Herman around, and the kids have loved it too. If you are lucky enough to be offered a Herman the German Friendship Cake like I was, take the challenge, it is a rewarding experience one I will remember fondly.
