Happy 1/2 Birthday to you!

Posted by Jennifer at 6:43 PM
Sarah wanted to take advantage of having family in town for the holidays and chose to celebrate her son's 1/2 birthday. That's right, not one, not two, but half birthday. :) She came up with this awesome idea of having the cake look like it had been cut straight down the middle, like in the end of the Willy Wonka movie where everything in his office is sliced down the middle. She wanted the cake to be fun, colorful and whimsical and here's what we came up with. It looks like a totally normal cake from this side and then as you turn it, you realize it's a bit odd. The cake was a Coconutty Almond Cake with a light coconut cream cheese frosting layered with sliced almonds, coconut cream filling, and coconut flakes. All of the decorations are made out of marshmallow fondant, including the "1/2" sign on the top. I hope Evan loved the cake (or at least registered that he was the luckiest kid in the world to get a half birthday).

Here is another shot for you to check out:

It may be 1/2 a cake, but it 2/2--that's 100%--rocks my socks!!
I have more than 1/2 a mind to spread your good cake name to more near-1/2 year old children so they know there are such delightful options for their special day...and that ain't the 1/2 of it!

Way to go, bud--you're the closest thing to a better 1/2 i've ever had. Thanks for being there for me a whole cake's worth of the time.

Too much? ;)
