Half Birthday

This was just a fun cake for a friend. His 13 year old daughter was celebrating her 1/2 birthday. I decided to do a 1/2 cake. I froze it and then cut off a hunk of it. I didn't want the cut side of the cake to dry out so I used choc. BC and iced the flat side and then used crushed Oreo's to simulate the cake's texture. To continue along with the 1/2 b-day theme, the actual cake is layered 1/2 white and 1/2 chocolate. I was excited to figure out how to make the cut side of the cake look realistic.

I love your cake and the colors are great! However, the thought of having even more birthdays than the one every year makes me cringe!!! LOL

Too cute! But reminds me of my own half cakes; my sister was three days older than me and my mom always saved half of her cake for my b-day

No way! That's sad. Hopefully that isn't happening anymore. Everyone needs their own WHOLE cake!
