The story that accompanies the ritual of making lumblia with the tale of love between two young people who were compelled to be apart – the love between a French soldier-baker and young Blajka. When the French army left, the soldier-baker had to leave too. At leave-taking he gave his beloved one a cake saying  ”n’oublie pas” (do not forget me).
