Somewhat related, I remember reading years ago in the Sunday Post newspaper about a family who used to make a sort of "chain letter cake" with their friends and relatives. |
What they used to do was one person would start by mixing up all the dry ingredients for the cake, flour, sugar, raisins etc. and saving some of it to one side. They would then make their cake as usual, but the spare dry mix they would send in the post to someone else.
The person receiving the mix would then make their own dry ingredient mix and add the mix that they had received to it. Then they would save some of the resulting mix to send to the next person.
The end result was that each person down the chain got to have a cake made with some of the previous person's ingredients (and everyone before them).
I thought it was an interesting idea, but Stewart's post illustrates that it could come with some unexpected "bonuses"!
