Two Halves make a Whole…

Not only do Abby and Zack have to share their birthday, but their birthday is exactly a week after Lila’s, right after Thanksgiving, and exactly three weeks before Christmas. On top of that, this year I hurt my knee and was basically useless for weeks.
Because of all the craziness I couldn’t throw a big party for them but I still wanted their cake to be really special. I had the idea to make two different cakes that looked like one cake. Sort of like the two of them…

Even though their birthday was months ago (December!!) I still can't believe they are already four! It seems like only yesterday they were just tiny little things.

They are the best of friends (most of the time). A friend of mine that has twins once said that “every child should be born with a best friend”. I totally agree. It is so fun to watch them play together. Watching the way they can entertain themselves and the way that they make each other laugh definitely makes all the struggles of having two babies worth it! I hope that as they grow up they will continue to be best friends!

I will never hope to match your birthday magic power, Emily (and while injured, too). Last year James requested corn bread instead of cake, anyway, so even if I tried, I suspect no one around here would appreciate it.

Okay, holy crap! That cake is freaking awesome! I looked at it in great detail to see how you did it. Wowzers!
I thought it was cute what you said about Abby and Zack being best friends. It almost made me get a little emotional. Aww... So cute! Nuce work, Em!

Love the cake! Now I want to have twins just so I can make a cake like that. I love your blog. I don't post often enough to let you know that. :)

I love it! I'm with Zack though, chocolate all the way. Can't believe your "babies" aren't even your babies anymore. Believe it or not, your cake helped inspire me for Avery's crazy hair day today for school. Keep the posts with all your cute ideas coming so I can keep copying them! :o)
