It’s made with a starter dough that’s passed along from friend to friend like a chain letter. You’re given a piece of dough by a friend. You add ingredients to it and let it sit on your countertop for nine days. At the end of that time, you divide the dough into four pieces. Three of the the pieces you pass along to three other friends with instructions to to start their own cake chains. You keep one and let it stand overnight on the countertop… the next day you can add extra ingredients for flavoring and cook it.
