    Default 1st Birthday Cake Receipes!?!

    Hello All,
    Looking for some 1st birthday cake receipes. I was looking for some healthy options but none of them seemed very tastey. I wanted to incorporate berries and wondered if anyone had any ideas. Also need frosting suggestions that aren't so sugary. Thanks!

    Thomas just turned one (!), and Isksam posted a link for an egg- and milk-free cake recipe that can be adjusted for different flavors (we don't have allergies, but he's only recently tried milk and hasn't had whole eggs yet, and I didn't want something sugary). I made the vanilla version (no frosting), and Thomas loved it.

    I made the carrot cake in the back of the What to Expect The First Year. It is very healthy but I have to tell you it tastes really healthy and is not that tasty. My son who has had only fruit as a sweet liked the frosting.

    For DD's 1st bday I made the carrot cake with cream cheese icing from Nourishing Traditions. I would post the recipe, but it's pretty long. Anyway, I didn't have high hopes for it but everyone at least pretended to enjoy it! I really liked that it is not too sweet, especially the icing. Usually cake tastes like you are eating pure sugar!

    I made the apple swirl cake from the wholesomebabyfood.com for L's first birthday. You can substitute things like applesauce or molasses for sugar and use something other than eggs for a binder (although I can't remember what the options are right now.) I'll be honest - I didn't alter the recipe much except to add a lot more chopped apples and to put apple juice instead of orange juice. I made myself feel better about using sugar and eggs by using all organic ingredients. L didn't eat any of it.

    I forgot to add that this recipe is delicious. I've made it twice since the party for DH and I to enjoy.

    For my niece's 1st birthday I made her vegan carrot cake cupcakes from recipezaar. They're really good close to my Grandma's non-vegan recipe. We did use regular cream cheese icing and boy was she jumping off the roof! There is a vegan icing recipe out there somewhere.
    I'll be making this recipe for L when he turn one.
