Does it feel like just yesterday that you arrived home with your precious little bundle of joy and now baby is already turning one? Here are five great cake ideas to celebrate the event.

The cookie monster

Instead of making a traditional baby cake bake a few batches of cookies and ice them. The theme works well for boys or girls because the cookies can be decorated in various colours. You can even create a cookie table where guests can express their creativity and decorate the cookies themselves.

Minnie Mouse for your little girl

Turn you daughter’s first birthday into a special occasion with a hot-pink polka-dot Minnie Mouse cake and matching cupcakes.

Superheroes for your boy

Let your son discover his inner superhero by baking a cake with various superhero characters.

Cake for two

If you have twins and you’re stuck for birthday ideas a circus or carnival cake is a perfect choice. The cake theme is suitable for boys or girls and both names can be put onto the cake. You can use various colours to decorate the cake.

Fun with cupcakes

Cupcakes are always a hit at kiddies’ parties. They can be colourfully decorated and there’s always enough for everyone!
