We do half birthdays around here. The tradition is family, pizza, and half a cake. It’s not about gifts; it’s just another fun way to celebrate throughout the year. Finding the right cake for a six month old could be difficult, but Martha Stewart’s banana cake was a great fit. It didn’t even seem as sweet as banana bread to me. My monkey isn’t quite as neat as Martha’s; cake decorating is something I am still working on mastering.

The monkey was all banana cake, but the adults got a half cake that was half banana cake and half chocolate.

The baby was not allowed to eat any of the frosting, but he still seemed to enjoy the banana cake.

We refrigerated the left over banana cake, and it was really yummy cold too.
