This month 3 years ago Lucy and I started our project called “The Food Exchange”. I actually had to double check if it has really been three years already because I couldn’t believe it. But it really is true – and a lot has happened in the meantime:
We both had a baby, bought a house and traveled quite a bit (mainly between Germany and England). It truly has been an exciting 3 years.
And amongst all the things happening we kept on doing the Food Exchange. And I can say for myself that I absolutely love it…I have baked so many things that I otherwise would never have made and I can honestly say that I am looking forward to it every single month.
Apart from that – and more importantly – I have found an amazing friend Lucy. Funnily enough we have never met in person (although I can’t wait to finally do this), but have become friends through writing messages to each other…almost old-fashioned like a letter friend ;).
Anyway, obviously this month had to be a Birthday theme and Lucy asked me to make a chocolate cake, and believe it or not I have never made a typically English chocolate cake before…
