Fundj, I spoke to him encouragingly when I tucked him in with the water bottle.
His pulse is still very weak.

I think I have a fatality. No bubbles - just flat.
I'm trying some life saving measures, Herman is sitting on a warm water bottle.
I hope day 7 isn't his last.   :( :( :(
Oh no how awful for you after all that TLC.Hopefully he will be revived. :)

Do hope Herman is ok Michele.
My Herman is only on day 2 and he grew ever so much last night.
At the moment I plan to make several cakes from him, but DD informed me today that some of her work mates would love baby Hermans, so I'll have to see. Most of my friends don't make cake, they are too good.

My Herman is doing very well at Day 5. He hasn't looked particularly alive and thriving until today. Lots of bubbles when I went to stir him! He must have enjoyed his tucker yesterday...
A great cook is one who can rustle up a fabulous family meal with some freezer burnt chops, wilted carrots, sprouting potatoes and cabbage that's gone brown on the cut edges.

I'm glad your Hermans are A&W, Megan and Cookie.
Unfortunately my Herman didn't make it. I was hoping to take the cooked cake and the starters into work tomorrow.
We celebrate all the April birthdays for the month on one day. Never mind. Looks like it's flourless chocolate cake.

I'm sorry your Herman didn't grow up and become a cake. I hope Herman II is a great success!

That's why I'm going to wait till the fire is going full time and the house is nice and warm before I start a Herman.

My Herman will be cooked up tomorrow. His offspring, sons of Herman, will be delivered to Council with Herman as arvo tea!

What are you going to put in your Herman Megan?
Would love to see a photo when he's cooked.

Heerman cake is lovely. So much so that I have baked 3 Hermans and not given any away. Just perfect in the freezer for when we are away. I added more sultanas to the second lot and a few craisins. No sugar on the top either, and I cooked it in a 23cm square tin. I haven't taken a photo but will do so.

I'm so pleased that Herman has worked for you Cookie. ;D It is a very moist cake and didn't take long to disappear in my house.
I recently spoke to a friend who had one of Herman's offspring and she used cherries soaked in Kirsch to add to her cake.
