Baby Zog is coming up on his first birthday. I'm trying to think of what his first cake experience should be. My nephew had his own chocolate cake with a heavy buttercream frosting, went to town, and then suffered later that night. I'm wanting to find a good cake/cake-like dessert that is not overwhelmingly sweet or rich.
Maybe strawberry shortcake or pumpkin cake? Any ideas? I think part of the issue is having the right frosting - maybe even just a lightly sweetened whipped cream?
