Hello everyone!

Dominic's first birthday is cominig up and with all the planning I forgot one small detail...THE CAKE! I want to make him a small cake for him to just dig into but I dont know what kind to make? Can he have chocolate? should I just do vanilla? swirl? confetti? LOL I was curious to what everyone else is doing? Thank you for help! Happy Birthday to all the babies!

I am making my son an angle food cake with cool whip frosting (dyed with blue food coloring), that way he doesn't get to much sugar but angel food cake is sweet anyways.

My daughter will be a year next week! Wow! Since her and her brothers birthday are 3 days apart, I am combining parties and for her I am making a dark chocolate cake with chocolate frosting and Tinkerbell designs. Her room and my shower were both done in Tinkerbell!

My son's 1st birthday was the 3rd and I made him a chocolate monkey cake with chocolate icing. He loved it...I made cupcakes for everyone else with a banana on top.

My son's birthday is in a week and a half! His nursery & baby shower was in Dinosaur so we are doing that theme for his birthday. We picked out a cake for his guests its gonna be traditional white cake buttercream frosting. It will have two dino's for him on it and a volcano that's actually edible on top =) We are also going to be doing a small version for him hisself to eat.

My sons B-Day is in 2 weeks and I'm going the untraditional route. I'm doing two different kinds of Rice Krispey treats and then using a cookie cutter to make fun shapes. We're going to the park and I don't want to deal with the huge mess and the huge sugar high from the frosting. I don't think all that sugar is good for a little guy. Rice Krispey's have enough. There's a baby toddler cook book that has simple, healthy B-Day cake recipes as well (no frosting). "The Big book of Recipes for Babies, Toddlers, & Children". It's great! Congratulations and good luck!

We did confetti cupcakes for Emma...she had her own one (and devoured it!) and there were even a few left over!

We are doing a little mini carrot cake for the baby with whipped cream frosting. My kids both have food allergies so we are holding off on the chocolate for now.

For my son's 1st birthday party last saturday I made confetti cupcakes with white frosting, a 9x13 chocolate cake with cream cheese frosting and then for his own personal cake it was an 8 inch square and decorated with monster trucks..grave digger and a few others. we took oreos and ran them through the blender and that was what we used for dirt and then my boyfriend made the trucks ramping cars and stuff on top. I was just trying to satisfy everyone and make the little guy happy as well.

I am doing a sprots theme so I am making a big cake for the guests, and decorating it like a football field (chocolate and the frosting is cream cheese that I will dye green for the field) and his personal cake I am going to shape like a football, chocolate with Chocolate frosting! I am also putting green sprinkles on the big cake to make it look more like grass and chocolate sprinkles on the football to give it a similar texture to a real football! I hope it turns out good! Wyatts party is on Sunday, his birthday is Thursday! Happy Birthday to your little guy too!

I did a big birthday party for Xiao when he turned 11 months on August 16th with my family (I live out of state, away from everyone). We did a yellow cake with cream cheese frosting, and that's probably what I'll do for his smaller party at my house with my friends.

I'm doing yellow cake with vanilla butter cream frosting and marshmallow fondant. I'm going to do one little cake, just for him to play in, and another one for eating.

Third baby for me. As with her two big brothers, I will be making her a chocolate cake with chocolate frosting. It is so much fun watching and taking pictures of them enjoying the chocolatey goodness! We hold off on chocolate until 1 year, so it is extra fun to watch them dig into the cake!
