But it's so fun! I made this half-birthday half-cake after seeing something similar online.
One boxed cake mix or about 5 cups cake batter
8" round cake pan
6" round cake pan
Piping Bags and Tip #7
Level each cake and cut it in half to create the half-circles.)
chocolate ganache on the cut side.
Why not just leave it cut? Because if you're not serving it immediately, it will dry out. So, adding the ganache serves two purposes. 1- it's chocolate, the more the better in this house. 2- it keeps the cake from drying out.
The rope border was made with Tip #7 and two colors. Click the link to see my video of the rope border technique.
Halves of fruit, halves of graham crackers, halves of cheese sticks... all only covering half of the plate. I also cut paper plates, napkins and cups in half.
My guys loved all of the half stuff. It was great!
