Here are some snippets of my half birthday festivities. I always made it kind of a deal that valentines day was my half birthday. I think it was mostly because since my birthday is in August, it was always before school started and all my friends were always still on vacation so I never really got to have many friends at my parties or have it acknowledged at school. Also we moved a ton, and a lot of times we had just gotten somewhere new before school was starting and I didn't know anyone anyway. Plus I just felt like my half birthday coinciding with a holiday just made it extra special. This year I threw a little half themed party, and made the cake and all the treats in halves. Luckily I have these cool ceramic fan plates that look like halves of a normal plate, so that worked out awesomely. I made a layered lemon cream cake, and I really liked how it turned out, although next time, I think I'll be using less sugar and even less lemon juice. The flavour was a little strong for me. It had been a while since I'd really baked anything, so it was fun to spend a day concentrating on treats.
