Red wine cake with grapes

Where did the name “Will Hike for Cake” come from?

Our group had been called “Heidelberg Hiking & Geochaching” for a couple of years. So what is the origin of “Will Hike for Cake”?

A few weeks back I thought about what was unique about our group. All of us like hiking and enjoy being outdoors – but that should be a given for a hiking group. For us however coffee, cake or ice cream at the end is important, too. At some point during hikes people even start daydreaming and talking about what treat might be waiting for us. I thought “Well, we usually hike and then there’s cake”. Suddenly the very apt name “Will Hike for Cake” came to my mind.
