Birthday cake for a 2 year old

I'd like to make a cake for my son's 2nd birthday (tomorrow! where does the time go???). He didn't eat any of his cake at his first birthday, and we don't really have cake in the house very often so I don't think he has any preferences. He does have a fondness for blueberry muffins, though. The only ingredient exclusions are things that are chewy or stick-in-the-teeth, because he doesn't have enough! I wanted to avoid chocolate cake but it's not completely out of the question if someone has a great tried-and-true recipe that's kid friendly.
