Well, the baking Gods had something else in mind and this is what I found in the oven after the cake batter rose:
I was crushed at first that the cake did not come out as planned but then went with it. It does look very cool, doesn't it?
The kids all could not wait to cut it and they were rewarded with this:
and then the best thing was that every slice was different:
from round to
Batman and everything in between!
It also helped that the cake was still warm, but the kids thought that my shape changing chocolate and vanilla cake was the best 1/2 birthday cake we have had!
And my son of course got a birthday lunch. He wanted simple and not a birthday bento, so he got a simple lunchbox for today.
He has a salami roll with lettuce, veggie sticks, grapes and a vanilla cupcake with melted chocolate decorations.
Happy 9 1/2 Birthday!
Have a great day and Happy Half Birthday to you - if it is your 1/2 birthday today ;)
