What flavor cake did you give your baby for their first birthday?

I'm going to have a small baby cake or cup cake for my daughter's first birthday. Just curious on what flavor cakes mom's choose? I'm thinking a vanilla or white cake.

  • We didn't. I did not want to introduce multiple new foods at one time.

  • I went for chocolate because it was to be his first encounter with chocolate and something so not, chocolate it was.

  • Chocolate. Its my favorite and he didn't know the difference so it worked out good. Make is with yellow frosting for sesame street...such a mess but it was fun!!

  • With number one I did a white smash cake with white frosting. The frosting broke her out in hives every where it touched her face. with #2 and #3 I did white cake with whipped creme frosting. Had no problems with the whipped creme frosting.

    Some moms say to use something like Carrot Cake because it has some nutritional value to it, which makes sense, but I didn't follow that advice.... now my kids are all old enough to know what kind of cake they want and it sure isn't carrot cake! LOL (though I love it!)

  • Both of my kids had white cake with buttercream frosting for their first birthday. So did both my niece and nephew.

  • My son will turn 1 in October, and I plan on making it a chocolate cake, so it'll show up good in pictures!

  • My older one had a white cake, which she did not eat at all. The twins had chocolate cupcakes, which they devoured.
