But first let’s talk “Herman”…If you want to try something fun… here is a copy of the old recipe like I used growing up “Herman” starter recipe and other “Herman” cake recipes are floating around everywhere, I used this recipe for my Herman cake and everyone flipped! I omitted the glaze, just thought it was too much… I loved passing “Herman” along especially to friends that didn’t usually bake…it was like the 10 day baking challenge…lol
