10 Cakes for Baby’s First Birthday

Beck’s birthday is on Sunday so I’ve got party planning on the brain. I haven’t quite decided what to offer as far as a cake but I know I definitely need one for the classic frosting covered face and shirtless picture. It’s a rite of passage, right? Here are some inspirational cakes I’ve come across that seem easy enough to try and recreate.

  • Layered


    I like how this one looks like they just threw a bunch of candy on the top for a hodge podge look. The baby probably helped decorate.

    If you’re throwing a rainbow party, cover the cake in sprinkles for a multi-colored look.

    Be afraid of fondant no more, Victoria makes it look simple enough to use and too cute not to.

  • Smash Cake

    I guess the term for a 1st birthday cake is smash because that’s what most kids are likely to do when it’s placed in front of them. This one is too pretty to see get destroyed.

    It’s easy to look like a genius cake decorator with the help of a cookie cutter and sprinkles.

    Don’t worry about frosting techniques, add lollipops to the top for an impressive look.
