Today is Frank’s last day with the company… a bummer for all of us here in Seattle, but an excuse to do more baking!

We’ll all be getting together later today to celebrate and wish him farewell with a proper German themed send-off: German beers (for the German who hates beer), German Chocolate Cake (which actually isn’t of German origin), and pretzels (unfortunately, not the kind you’d get in Germany).

The cake took a while to make following a recipe online, but from the scraps I tasted it should be pretty good!
