Have you ever tried to make a swirled cake for two people at once? Well its not very hard, but making it for two people- now that’s a whole other story! My mom and brother have birthdays one day apart and I am the one who makes the cakes in the family. So think about it… getting two cards, two presents and making a cake, now that takes skill. But I did it last year and I can do it again. So for the cake, I made it chocolate and vanilla! That wasn’t the hard part. The hard part was decorating it one side for my mom and the other for my brother. So I had to ask my mom her favorite flavor of cake and her favorite thing to do, see, or go to and since my brother was at collage I had to guess for him! After I had the idea in my head it was time to put it on the cake. It was going to have one side a field with flowers and grass and the other side was going to have a beach with water and a wave. The hardest part was the grass because it took so much frosting. I had to ask my mom to make more before I was even done with the grass! Once I was done with the field I had to make the beach. That was fun because I had to go back and forth and back and forth. After I got done covering the sides and top with water it was time to make the wave. The wave would not stand up! Somehow I got it to stand and when I did I did not touch it! After that I did the sand. That was the funnest part of the entire cake. I made the sand by taking a handful of brown sugar and sprinkling it all around the other half. After that I was done and it was on to my brothers present witch was the left over cake batter that we baked. For that cake I was going to make it look like a wrapped present (my grandma gave me that idea.) It was red on the background with green ribbon. When I gave it to him I told him that he could bring it back to collage for him and his roommates to share.( it also got me some advertisement.) The next day we brought the cake up to my mom and brother they loved it! We ate it with coffee and mint ice-cream and it was really really good!
