First Birthday Cake Ideas & Instructions

...for homemade baby birthday cakes

Here are some first birthday cake ideas and instructions for you to use or to inspire you! All of these ideas of course can be used for children of any age so keep these designs in mind for future years.

Parents often put a lot of effort into baby's first birthday party - and you should! Afterall, it is your celebration too, you've been a parent for one whole year and that is a wonderful accomplishment.

I've always preferred homemade cakes over storebought ones. It seems very sweet to make a cake especially for baby to enjoy. Looking back at my own childhood birthday cakes, it was the homemade ones that I remember, somehow, even at a young age I must have appreciated all the work that went into them.

Parents often look for first birthday cake ideas that they can use with special recipes (avoiding dairy or eggs or wheat for example) and all of these cakes can be made with any recipe! The creative part of these cakes is simply using different pans and arranging the parts into shapes. Really simple, you can do it!
