Herman stinks and definitely not in a good way. Herman began his life at a friend’s house and she brought him to work for me to look after. He came with a list of instructions so that I cared for him properly. I discovered that looking after him meant that I would have to put up with a very bad habit that he has – a very bad case of gas which causes him to smell awful.
Now, you may beginning to ask: “Who is Herman?” Well, it’s not really a ‘who’ more of a ‘what’. Herman is a cake. To be more precise, he’s a sharing cake.
He arrived on Monday and sat on my desk at work all day. Every time someone came into my classroom they commented on the smell and I began to take it personally! I then took Herman home and my husband noticed the smell as soon as he walked in the door.
“It smells like a brewery. What on earth smells so bad?”
Yeast. Pure and simple. He’s growing everyday; either because I have to add some more ingredients or because the yeast is doing its work. After I’ve fed him a bit more I will have to split him into four portions and then give three of the portions to friends and then add some more ingredients to the final portion that I keep and then cook him.
I’ll show you the result later in the week!
