half a cake for half a year
Elise (because who isn't? She is a pretty awesome lady), I decided to bake half a cake to go with the whole half a year thing.
I used this recipe and the icing from this cake. Gosh it was yummy and yes this was of course for mine and Mani's benefit and while Jack, although interested in food is a bit too young for cake just yet. Next time my boy!
All I did was halve the recipe and baked one cake. I let it cool and cut it in half. I spread some apricot jam and icing on one half and stacked the other on top and then iced the rest of the cake. It goes without saying that sprinkles have to be used. And a little candle too.
I think half birthdays are fun and why not hey? All our birthdays are in winter so its a good excuse to bake a cake and celebrate a half birthday in the summer.
Why not work out when your half birthday is and bake a cake? Have fun.
P.S. I did a chocolate cake challenge! See my efforts here:
Chocolate Cake #1, Chocolate Cake #2, Chocolate Cake #3, Chocolate Cake #4 and the last one #5.
