Darrell came home after a full day of rush photocopying jobs in a very buoyant mood yesterday, the lovely Stephanie at school, who I think Darrell has a secret crush on, had given him a friendship cake to “grow”! He said he felt blessed in a Hello Magazine type way that the lovely Stephanie had bestowed such a wondrous gift upon him.
It will be 10 days before we can actually bake and eat it, but after we perused the detailed instructions we think we are up to the challenge of cultivating it and hopefully it will satisfy Darrell’s yearning to “brew” something as, it seems to contain an almighty amount of yeast judging from the whiffs and froth exuding from it!
So today is Day 1 and we have put the mixture in a huge bowl, loosely covered so it can breathe ….. and we now need to leave it to bubble, spume and grow…. how very, very exciting!
We will keep you up to date with our and the cakes progress as and when there are any developments!
