Bad Wildbad, Germany - 15th May 2013

By: fam-united

Bad Wildbad is a town in Germany, in the state of Baden-Württemberg. The town was named only Wildbad until 1991, when it was given its current name ("Bad" is German for "bath", a reference to the town's status as a spa town). It is picturesquely situated 420 m above sea level, in the romantic pine-clad gorge of the Enz, a tributary of the Neckar in the Black Forest, 45 km west of Stuttgart and 23 east of Baden-Baden by rail.

We drove to Blaustein on the Autobahn. My hosts' one son lives in this town, which is close to Ulm. Here you see some impressions during our drive, which took about 2 hours one way. You still see thick clouds in the sky.


This parking house was built over the autobahn. It is next to Stuttgart airport.

Blaustein, Germany - 20th May 2013

By: fam-united

It seems, that sightseeing means to look out of windows or driving cars. The weather was too cold and we only had a little time in Blaustein before we had to drive back to Bruchsal again, so here you can see just a view over the roofs.

Untergrombach Michaelsberg, Germany - 25th May 2013

By: fam-united

The weather is really nice, if you don't count the heavy clouds, so we decided to go on a drive to two of Bruchsal's suburbs: Untergrombach and Obergrombach. At first we wanted to visit the chapel on Michaelsberg, a small hill which belongs to Untergrombach. It was too crowded there, because there was a wedding.
So we only took a photo of the small hills of Kraichgau.

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


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.


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



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.


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



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.



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


Melek helped


and Nathalie


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


Nathalie was still busy stiring the dough.


And then we filled it in the dish.


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.



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



Little Dragon helped to skin it.




And I helped to cut it in pieces.


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





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.


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.


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



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.
