    What type of cakes can be eaten by 1 year old

    My girl is approaching 1. I would like to have a birthday cake just for her.. i.e to be eaten/ messed up by her rather than us adults.

    My qns is what type of cream and cake can be eaten by 1 year old? Where can I order such baby friendly cake?

    Thanks

    First you should be sure that your child does not have wheat or egg allergy. I think a plain sponge cake with vanilla icing/ fruits is the safest bet, but having said that eating too much of it won't obviously be good for a 1 year old. Personally I would find it a hassle cleaning up after she messes up an entire cake. Also the risk of the cake getting in her eyes/ nose/ ears. I gave my daughter little bit of chocolate/ strawberry cake which we got for her 1st birthday and she was fine with it :)

    i made a simple cheesecake made of cream cheese, eggs, vanilla beans & added a TBS of sugar for my daughter when she turned 1, not only did she love it (carved out her name on the cheesecake & she gobbled almost 2 out of the 5 alphabets of her name). i made a small pan for mess sake & a different pan for proper eating for adults. ;)

    What about cupcakes? We stuck a 1 year old candle in one and the bub had her own 'cake' - she ate probably one quarter of. You can get baby size ones or regular that actually come in the shape of a real cake. Make your own or some companies do custom cakes so you could request specific/organic/natural ingredients.

    a 1 year old can eat pretty much anything an adult can, just in much smaller portions.

    for my kids' first birthdays, i just baked a regular birthday cake as i would for anyone else's birthday.

    i also made my own buttercream icing.

    I made sweetened cornbread muffins with raisins in them for my son's 1st birthday. He liked them.
