Re: "Alternative" cake for a 1-year-old's b-day?

Well, these aren't "cake-like" because we don't give our LOs wheat until they are at least 2 (because of family history of allergies and celiac disease), but for DS's 1st birthday he got a parfait made of yogurt, strawberries, and bananas, with freeze-dried fruit on top. For DD's 1st birthday we did a watermelon "cake," topped with blackberries, cantaloupe, and kiwi. If you want something with the mess factor of a "smash cake," a parfait works well!
