Burnt & Strange - or, How to get a signed copy of my book
October 7th, 2008

These days I especially have a wish for one little skill: a very readable, pleasing to the eye and charming handwriting. Whenever somebody asks me to sign a copy of my book I’m a bit hesitant, because I know my handwriting just too well, and it is about as far from pretty as it can get. Heck, I try my best to make up for the messy writing by whit and charm, but when my grandpa called me the other day to inquire about what I had written in his book, it dawned on me that I failed. It sucked.

Anyway… if you’re up for a little guessing game yourself and are willing to ‘decipher’ one of the following photos, you may be in for a delicious treat (including a scrawly signature, if you insist). So while I’m traveling and am away visiting dear friends, the comment section remains open and is awaiting your suggestions on what these pictures show. Drop a note until October 14th 2008 and do not forget to add a valid email address as well. Everybody with at least one correct answer goes to the pool of candidates from which Oliver will pick three random entries (manually, no voting machines from the ETC are involved … ;-), who will receive a copy of my book (either in German or English language) – as long as you live on this planet. Happy guessing!

Am I cute? But what am I?

No, this wasn’t supposed to happen. Another very simple cake from my childhood… but which?

Update:
Thank you all for participating! The fruit shown in the first picture is indeed a rose apple (and comes with many more names, the second one shows my last and failed attempt at baking a what we refer to as a butter cake (basically a sheet cake made from yeast dough with butter and (cinnamon) sugar on top. It all looked good until my grandpa called me on the phone to share some exciting news… and I completely forgot about the cake. Quite inedible, from the oven into the trash. I was pretty impressed, that some of you even guessed the cake right (and I wasn’t impressed any less by the fact, that so many of you knew that I make sponge cake rolls quite often…). Oliver has already picked three book winners (randomly) and I will contact them via email over the next days and annonce them here over the upcoming weekend. So check your mailboxes, guys and gals :)
