First Birthday Party Ideas

New parents tend to get very excited about their baby's very first birthday and come up with tons of first birthday party ideas. It's a fun parenting responsibility. The problem is, most of their birthday party ideas are usually too complicated or too costly, or both.

That is where this page comes in. To help with first birthday party ideas for a birthday cake, there are several to choose from. All of them require only basic baking and decorating skills. Honestly, I believe that most older kids could bake these birthday cakes with little problems. Also, none of the birthday cakes require expensive baking pans or other equipment.

Saving time and money on the cake frees up more for the fun things like decorations, and first birthday gifts. Have fun at your toddler's first birthday party and don't fret about the small stuff.

Most Important- Enjoy Your Baby's First Birthday Party

I hope that these amazing birthday cakes have given you lots of first birthday party ideas that you can use. The birthday cakes are perfect idea starters for birthday themes, decorations, even invitations.

But more important than the perfect cake or first birthday party is enjoying your baby and the time that you get to spend with family and friends. Take lots of photos and savor this special time.
