Lily's birthday was this past Sunday. I had a whip cream frosting with vanilla cake and the filling was banana and on the other layer it was strawberry. I figured a little mashed fruit would be nice and the kids really like it. The whip cream topping is nice and light too. I just put some Lily of the Valley flowers for a decoration.

My son turns 1yr on January 14th and for his birthday cake we went ot Safeway and ordered one of their cupcake cakes... its handy because then everyone gets the same size piece and you can order half chocolate half white and choose whatever for the decoration... we chose Disney Pixars Cars... it will be soo cool and so easy because then you don't have to worry about a knife around all the kids!

My princess is allergic to eggs & peanuts. So I made a Cherrybrook Kitchen egg, peanut, dairy & gluten free yellow cake. I also made egg, peanut, dairy & gluten free frosting. But ended up covering the cake with store bought spray icing. It was pink & beautiful & she LOVED it! Sophia also loves blueberries, so I put a little blueberry surprise in the middle of the cake before I frosted it! The link below is a photo of Sophia & her cake!

we had a few celebrations so I had a carrot cake & banana cake to make it more healthy. I used cream cheese frosting on both. She tolerated the banana cake but she has refused all other types of cake and frosting. She doesn't seem to like cake or frosting and cried everytime we gave it to her to play with. She likes ice cream so I wish I would have just done the ice cream cake instead.
I am making my son a stand up teddy bear for his 1st birthday on the 23rd. I am making cupcakes for everyone else. The stand up teddy is fun because he can have fun with it! He only turns one once. The teddy is a family tradition for the last 35 years for all the babies including myself.

Yesterday, I made a carrot cake (without eggs and butter) for him with a whipped cream cheese frosting (low sugar). I figured he hasn't been eating a lot of sugar yet so I didn't want to overwhelm his system and make him sick on his birthday. He had fun mashing the cake!

My daughters birthday is on the 24th and we're doing a tinkerbell party theme. I am very bad at baking so havent considered making anything. I have decided to get her a oversized cupcake with pink frosting and her number 1 candle for picture purposes and am going to set her in her high chair and let her go at the cupcake herself. For the other party guests im getting an ice cream cake from dairy queen because thats my favorite. And as for the whole sugar thing... its her birthday and i know she wont eat much anyway but what better day is there for spoiling your baby!

My daughter's party is Yo Gabba Gabba themed so I'm making Gabba character cupcakes (some chocolate and some vanilla) then I'm making a yellow layer cake with whipped cream and fruit filling. She will only be eating a small piece of either cupcake or cake so I don't think it's a big deal if it's sugary...the desserts are mainly for friends and family.
They have something called crazy cakes out there. They are depression era cakes that are made without sugar and other ingreds most of us don't want to give them at age one. You can google for recipes. :) Good luck! I'm making one for my daughter to plow into herself! :)

My son's birthday was on the first and we made a chocolate cake with buttercream frosting with a picture of Snoopy on it. He loved it. The doctor said he could have chocolate at one year so I figured why not let him try it on his birthday.
