It is much better to prepare this cake and frosting at home instead of buying a birthday cake at a bakery or grocery store. Home cooked cakes can be healthier, lower in fat and much more flavorful than store bought bakery products. Besides, you get to be in charge of the design and colors.

One thing to remember is that young kids are going to be suitably impressed with bold, primary colors and designs that are simple and familiar. Although many guests of honor at a 1st birthday party will smash their cake instead of eating it you can use this simple, buttercream recipe to make a stunning centerpiece for that party table that contains only 2-3 grams of fat per serving

1st birthday Cake Designs:

Low Fat Fat Free Frosting:

1stick softened butter (can replace with equivalent amount of Smart Balance spread)

1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract

1/3-1/2 cup cocoa

4 1/2 cups confectioner sugar

1/3 cup fat free milk

Cream the butter, and then add the remaining ingredients. After applying the chocolate frosting you can use colorful icing to create a special, kid-friendly design.

Using Smart Balance and fat free milk helps make this recipe lower in fat than many other buttercream or whipped frostings.

Although there are some birthday cakes that can be sculpted into a specific design most of the cakes for toddlers you need to remember that kids are very easy to please. A round or square cake will be just as welcome as one that you have carefully molded into the shape of a carousel or the number ‘1'.

Some of the best 1st birthday Cake Designs include ideas such as fire trucks, cars, wagons, balloons or other objects that a child can quickly identify. These types of objects are also very easy to draw and color.

Icing and frosting that are in bright, bold colors will provide the perfect cake decorations. Blue, green, red and yellow are some of the best shades to use but you can still create beautiful cakes and decorate them with pastel shades of pink and lavender if you wish. These lighter colors are best when used to accent the overall design or you can use pastel shades to make a border of flowers and leaves around the edges of your cake.

Think about using a favorite cartoon character when you are preparing a child's 1st birthday cake. Disney characters, movie characters and familiar characters from television shows for toddlers are always going to be popular choices.

Consider creating a cake that can really be appreciated by that one-year-old child and don't worry so much about trying to fashion a cake more suitable at a teen or adult's birthday table. A birthday cake with a simple drawing of a green truck with big red wheels will be a design that appeals to youngsters. You do not have to over-complicate the matter by attempting to add too many details. "The simpler-the better".

You could use a template to help you achieve the perfect design but many people like the challenge of ‘freehand' drawing when it comes to decorating cakes for children. This is one time that you will be forgiven if that design is not ‘right on the money'. In fact, many kids will prefer a cake that appeals more to their imaginations and less to the adult's idea of cake decoration with ‘precision execution'.

Bake a cake with applesauce instead of oil and eggs. Limit the amount of sugar in the recipe. Add flavorful fruits or pure fruit juice for sweetness and low-fat flavor. If dairy products must be used you can replace these ingredients with reduced fat, or fat-free versions of milk, yogurt or cream cheese.

No matter what type of design you choose for that first birthday celebration you can make sure that you use low fat ingredients in both the cake and the frosting. It might be tempting to prepare a cake that is over the top but with a little thought that same cake can be healthy and delicious.
