Mannheim, Germany - 28th August 2011

By: fam-united

Today we visited our host's aunt and uncle in Mannheim. From the balcony in the fifth floor we saw these high buildings.

We saw some rather old houses.

We also saw the tv-tower.

Mummelsee, Germany - 29th August 2011

By: fam-united

My host and her daughter and son had the idea to walk around the Mummelsee. The Mummelsee is a 17-metre-deep lake at the western mountainside of the Hornisgrinde in the northern Black Forest of Germany. It is very popular with tourists travelling along the Schwarzwaldhochstraße. According to legends, the lake is inhabited by a Nix and the King of the Mummelsee.

Bad Wildbad, Germany - 7th September 2011

By: fam-united

Today we went on a short trip to Bad Wildbad. We first thought, that we maybe could walk through a spa garden, but then the weather was so bad, that we decided to only have lunch and then go home again. Oh no, we didn't walk from Bruchsal to Bad Wildbad, we took the city railway.

http://farm7.static.flickr.com/6031/6222135427_2874fa3f13_o.jpg


For lunch we had Swabian pockets with fresh flowers on it. It looked and tasted really good.

Bruchsal, Germany - 10th September 2011

By: fam-united

Today we bake a cake for a birthday party, where we will go later. It is an apple cake, bottom and cover with the same dough. It is really yummy, but we had to work a lot to get all these apples cut into small pieces.

Bruchsal, Germany - 5th January 2012

By: fam-united

I like this Christmas decoration on the window. It's on the same place each year. If you like it too and want the originals to cut them out for yourself, please send a note to Petra.
It's a nice place for us toyvoyagers, too. It is warm and you can see everything that's going on on the street
:)

http://farm8.staticflickr.com/7175/6771663677_cefd9632f2.jpg


The first photo is without flash, just to show you, how dark it is outside although it is early midday. If Petra hasn't done a mistake, then there are 26 toyvoyagers sitting together. Some are her toyvoyagers, some her daughters and some are rescued toyvoyagers, which still are at her place and of course some are guests, who will move on again.

Bruchsal, Germany - 5th January 2012

By: fam-united

After the big group photo session the guests finished the stars.

http://farm8.staticflickr.com/7025/6771664051_1204554cdd.jpg


Of course we other toyvoyagers were really curious and came to take a look at the beautiful stars.

http://farm8.staticflickr.com/7028/6771664375_991998cfcf.jpg


http://farm8.staticflickr.com/7034/6771664669_374a235de2.jpg


Later a group of starsingers visited our house, but we just had been too slow, so we aren't on this photo. Nevertheless we thougth, that it is a good idea to show you, how starsingers can look like. They don't carry one of our stars, though. They belong to the church region, were our hosts live, but our hosts go to another church, where they lived before. It's a bit complicated:)

http://farm8.staticflickr.com/7160/6771665219_51793c249e.jpg


In the afternoon we all helped our Petra to bake two cakes. She told us, that tomorrow isn't only Epiphany, but also her husbands 50th birthday and that we will go to the parish hall and carry cakes with us. At first we baked a Hermann cake. It is a cake like a round robin, that's how it seems for me. Petra told us, that she received a part of the cake a few days ago and that she had to stir it and to feed it and that now it is ready to get baken. Of course we added some more stuff like flour, sugar, almonds, cinnamon, chocolate pieces.

We read the recipe.

http://farm8.staticflickr.com/7154/6771665459_0f44a74887.jpg


Then we had to get some more dishes for the "kids" of this cake.

http://farm8.staticflickr.com/7149/6771665703_6378cb2af6.jpg


We had been really busy.

http://farm8.staticflickr.com/7166/6771669229_ce31c7efee.jpg


We also added some apple pieces.

http://farm8.staticflickr.com/7168/6771669471_153dbd7a9b.jpg

http://farm8.staticflickr.com/7009/6771669797_94b0b99c6c.jpg


We wondered, if this dish would be big enough and decided, that it wasn't. So we took a star for the dough of Hermann.

Bruchsal, Germany - 25th March 2012

By: German Rescue

Petra has created the German Rescue, so she keeps an overview over all the toyvoyagers at her place. The German Rescue is for toys, who were stuck at a place and then send on to fam-united.

I'm sure, I will travel home as soon as you write to my host.

Bruchsal, Germany - 22nd April 2012

By: fam-united

Finally I found time to read these two pages of two different newspapers of the week. The one is about Bruchsal asparagus. Bruchsal is famous for its asparagus fields and auctions.

http://farm8.staticflickr.com/7248/7124492499_d9e0bf309c.jpg



The other newspaper page is about the baroque palace of Bruchsal. I think, you have a good view to many different parts of the main building with the church tower, but still many houses are missing.

We have typical April weather in Bruchsal. There is sunshine and the next moment there is hail and thunder and rain.

Bruchsal, Germany - 25th April 2013

By: fam-united

Wow! We have another sunny day! I really had no chance to see the flowers in the garden behind the house until now, because the weather was that bad. I can't remember, that we had springweather like this before. All flowers are blooming at the same time and the trees got leaves within minutes it seems.

Bruchsal, Germany - 26th May 2013

By: fam-united

Today we decided to bake a rhubarb cake. Our host allowed us to do it all alone without her help. So please take a look at the recipe. We explain it step by step:

At first we had to find a place - we are quite a few
:)

http://farm9.staticflickr.com/8120/8925650459_25c2fb409a.jpg

Of course we aren't all traveling. Some of us are here as active toyvoyagers, but many of us are guests, who decided to stay here as long as the owners don't find time to get in contact with our host. And of course some of us live here, but we all have one thing in common - we are toyvoyagers.
At next we had to get the eggs. We need six eggs for the cake.


http://farm3.staticflickr.com/2894/8926263186_1c392f9ea5.jpg


It was Sausi Karl's job to beat the eggs.

http://farm3.staticflickr.com/2823/8925649599_791739a839.jpg

http://farm3.staticflickr.com/2837/8926262302_7aeafb0649.jpg


Then one of us - don't know who - added 50g sugar for each egg, so it was 300 g sugar. It's quite a lot, we know.

http://farm6.staticflickr.com/5340/8925648755_99037120e0.jpg


Madam Miff added one packet of vanilla sugar to the dough.

http://farm4.staticflickr.com/3770/8926261548_8998663879.jpg

http://farm8.staticflickr.com/7396/8925647869_237cb5fd27.jpg


Of course we had to beat the dough again, but we couldn't handle the camera while beating the dough.
Matcha and Ted added 300g flour and one packet of baking powder.


http://farm8.staticflickr.com/7383/8926260672_da07c34399.jpg

http://farm4.staticflickr.com/3678/8926260212_c72498b239.jpg


Then we had to stir the dough again until it was fluffy.

http://farm6.staticflickr.com/5341/8925646503_71c81a9212.jpg


Melek helped

http://farm6.staticflickr.com/5345/8925646031_19fa977bf5.jpg


and Nathalie

http://farm3.staticflickr.com/2879/8925645579_b3897924c7.jpg


Then Matcha prepared the dish for the dough. We baked without bottom on a foil.

http://farm8.staticflickr.com/7396/8925645243_84f5a0b420.jpg


Nathalie was still busy stiring the dough.

http://farm6.staticflickr.com/5461/8926258054_90e53dfbcb.jpg


And the she filled it in the dish.

http://farm8.staticflickr.com/7346/8926257628_0006344c9a.jpg


Then we all were sitting there and waiting for the cake to get baken in the oven. Man it was boring at first. But we didn't expect, that half an hour can be such a short time, when so many tvs are together.

http://farm4.staticflickr.com/3828/8926257210_04a81c0d7e.jpg

http://farm6.staticflickr.com/5448/8926256334_e45a065417.jpg


After this break we had to prepare the rhubarb, because we wanted to fill the cake with rhubarb cream.

http://farm6.staticflickr.com/5325/8925642549_64bc3d6b29.jpg

http://farm9.staticflickr.com/8280/8925642077_7d28b046f1.jpg


Little Dragon helped to skin it.

http://farm3.staticflickr.com/2892/8926254860_9ffd0a4e02.jpg

http://farm3.staticflickr.com/2891/8925641099_55bf42ecab.jpg

http://farm9.staticflickr.com/8557/8925640615_c12058fe1e.jpg


And Matcha helped to cut it in pieces.

http://farm8.staticflickr.com/7431/8925640213_0ed27dc6e2.jpg


Billy helped Matcha to stay on the pot during cutting the rhubarb pieces.

http://farm8.staticflickr.com/7355/8926252924_722dec89c7.jpg

http://farm8.staticflickr.com/7449/8926252512_ca9e8678ee.jpg

http://farm4.staticflickr.com/3834/8925638829_1cffc388c3.jpg

http://farm9.staticflickr.com/8546/8926251574_0be69c2f2e.jpg


Then we had to prepare some ingrediences for the cream. We needed two packets of vanilly pudding powder, one egg white and one yolk. We had to stir the egg white.

http://farm4.staticflickr.com/3809/8926251194_8c89fefb59.jpg


Before adding the stirred egg white, we had to add the pudding powder. We had added a little bit of water to it and shook it until it was smooth. Then we added the pudding powder to the cooked rhubarb. We also added the yolk.

http://farm4.staticflickr.com/3716/8926250806_6303221319.jpg


Then Louis the Rat added the stirred egg white and gently folded it in.

http://farm4.staticflickr.com/3800/8926250320_b994916c7a.jpg

http://farm6.staticflickr.com/5331/8926249780_60c4a38bda.jpg


Finally we cut the cake in two layers and filled the cream on the first and then on the second layer and put the last layer on top of it.

Bruchsal, Germany - 29th May 2014

By: fam-united

There will be a big event in this family this year: the wedding of one of the sons. Petra is happy, that she is allowed to bake the wedding cake. It will be a cake with strawberries and maybe some marzipan. She still doesn't know the other ingredients, so she has to try some cakes and find out the best version. And of course we are part of this.
Here's the first cake - I can't remember the ingredients anymore, I'm sorry.
:)
