I went the easy route and used a store bought mix and icing and decorated it. Actually we made cupcakes so it wouldn't be a huge cake for her, but still her own one to play in.

If you want to make something kind of healthy (if you can say that about cake, lol) maybe a carrot cake w/ cream cheese frosting, that way you can still decorate the top because the icing is pretty white.

Re: ISO recipes for DDs first B-day cake

for dd#1's first birthday I made a ladybug cake (from a mix) and baked it in a pyrex bowl and used a custard cup for the head. I tinted frosting red with wiltons coloring and used black tube frosting to draw wings,oreo's for spots. For her little cake I used a muffin tin and a mini muffin tin to bake the cake in and decorated it with the red frosting as well and you could use mini oreo's or black circles. They turned out really cute.

Re: ISO recipes for DDs first B-day cake

I made this cake for Camille's first bday in July. Everyone raved about it and I had several people ask for the recipe.

4 eggs
2 c. sugar
15 oz of 3rd foods baby carrots (I think I used 4 4 oz jars)
2 c. whole-wheat flour
1 tsp. baking soda
1 tsp. salt
2 tsp. cinnamon
1 c. vegetable oil
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Combine all ingredients in mixing bowl and mix well. Spray 11x17 baking pan w/cooking spray. Pour batter into pan and bake for 30 minutes. When cool, frost with cream cheese frosting and refrigerate until ready to serve.

Frosting:
Beat together 1 1/2 c. powdered sugar, 1/4 c. butter, 3 oz cream cheese, and 1 tsp vanilla.


I made this with all organic ingredients and left out the salt. It was a very moist cake and even though we had a store-bought white cake, most of our guests chose the carrot cake.

Those are all great ideas! Thank you.

I found this banana cake and I think I might have to try this one. It's just too funny!

My little guys is this Friday Boohoooo. The carrot cake or banana cake is a good idea. I am going to make a pound cake for the adults.

Re: ISO recipes for DDs first B-day cake

For my daughters first I made a cake in the shape of a letter 1, decorated and iced it just for her to "dig into". Then for everyone else, I made a cake (all iwth cake mixes), frosted it white, then took marshmallows of different sizes and toothpicks along with colored sugar and made little animals out of them. Mostly giraffs and teddy bears. I would dip hte edges of the marshmallows in the colored sugar to give it some flare.

If you want a professional icing recipe, I got this from a woman in the checkout at Farmer Jack! LOL! It's perfect!

Click Here for the recipe I posted on recipezaar.
