There are so many emotions and milestones we associate with our babies turning the big O-N-E. But the best part of all might just be watching them dig their tiny hands into their first cake — and watching the mess that ensues afterwards.
As a parent you want your little one to have a festive and delicious smash cake to dive into, but maybe you don't want to load them up with artificial dyes or too much sugar, resulting in a tummy ache or a sugar crash soon after. Or maybe your baby has dairy or gluten allergies that inhibit them from indulgling in store-bought cakes altogether.

If you're looking to make a healthier cake with ingredients you know your baby is use to eating and will enjoy on their big day, whip up one of these recipes perfect for tots and health conscious parents alike.
