For all non-German readers, ‘Glückspilz’ directly translated means ‘Lucky Mushroom’. For some people, the street light is always green. They find money on the sidewalk on a regular basis…
The shoes they want to buy are always available in their size… In Germany, those are the lucky mushrooms – or “Glückspilze.” It may not sound that flattering, but if you are the one with the never-ending streak of luck, you won’t mind one bit!
That’s why I call this cake Glückspilz Cake, I made it for the new year. Some of you might have seen it already in my Magazine.
