Fantabulous Birthday Cake Ideas to Celebrate the 1st Joyous Year

1st birthday cake idea
The first birthday of your child is perhaps the first party you throw for him after he's born. It's indeed a very special day and certainly calls for a grand celebration.
The bundle of joy you brought home 12 months ago has reached his first milestone! Such a special day for both, the parents and the baby. They say the first year is the toughest; congratulations on completing it successfully.
The first birthday party is an exceptional occasion, maybe not grand per se, but definitely different. While other aspects of the party might be easy to plan (such as the theme, decorations, favors, etc.), the cake tests your originative thinking for sure.
Cupcakes
Cupcakes are your best bet. They're easy to make, easy to serve and easy to add variety too. Want all the kids at the party to freak out? Prepare different cupcakes and let them choose which one they want.

Big Cakes
Want to have the biggest cake for your child on his first birthday? It better be the best then. If you're spending so much on it, make sure you're right with the design. If it's a boy, choose a cake that has things like cars, trucks and spaceships on it. Your theme can revolve around the cake then. Similarly, for girls you can have barbies, purses, bows, fairies or female cartoon characters. It isn't always necessary to stereotype the cake, you can also choose a design that doesn't focus on gender.

Something Not-so-simple
Something Elegant
Having a preppy party? Well then, your cake has to be no different. Select something really elegant and sophisticated. If you have a baby girl, go for the obvious pink, but not too much of it. If it's a boy, it's blue. However, if you have twins, a girl and a boy, go for the neutral purple.
