My mother in law, God rest her soul, used to make a "30 day cake". Everyone loved it and I would like to make it for the family for the holidays. However, it needs a starter and I have no idea how to "start" the starter! If anyone out there can help I would love to hear from you.

Starter For Friendship Bread
Directions: Mix in a large, sealable zip lock baggie with wooden spoon. Do not use metal spoon or bowl. Remove all air. Do not refrigerate. It is normal for batter to thicken, bubble and ferment. It will expand each day.
Preheat oven to 325 degrees F. Grease 2 loaf pans. Coat insides with mixture of the cinnamon and sugar, reserving some for sprinkling on top of loaves. Add remaining ingredients to starter. Divide batter into bread pans and sprinkle tops with reserved cinnamon and sugar mixture. Bake for 1 hour. (09/09/2008)

On the 20th day add 2 (9 oz.) jars maraschino cherries, cut up and drained. Stir daily for 10 more days.
On the 30th day drain the juices from the fruit and divide the fruit into three portions, 1 for each cake. Use some of the juice for starter. (09/09/2008)
I have a recipe for a Friendship Cake that takes 30 days to complete. You need a starter and you add fruit to it every so many days, and let it sit. Then on the 30th day you bake it.
