YOu could just make a round white cake and put cow spots on it. That would be pretty simple.

I made a cow cake for a little guy turning 4 and I think it turned out great. It was round with cow spots and then molded cows sitting on top. Molding it wasn't too hard, just like playing play doh. Check out my pics if you're interested. If you have any questions, feel free to pm me. HTH & good luck!

Welcome to CC, Ashlie2009!
I'm a hobby baker and just play around with this, but I did a cow cake a couple of weeks ago that turned out really well (if I say so myself!). It was great fun, good experience for me, and not hard to do. I'll pm you with a pic if you'd like......

How about a cow print with a rope border?

I see you make round cakes, and want to stay in your comfort zone for the 2 year old...
So I'd make a round cake with white buttercream and brown spots on the sides. A cartoonish cow face on the top.
Along the lines of this one, I think... http://www.thisislovegifts.com/Images/Designs%20images/animals/CowHeadBibClose.jpg
A bottom border of green using the grass tip. The happy birthday in green also. Maybe a few drop flowers, not many, just to give a little more color.

I think i will do a round cake with brown spots. Should i make the spots with fondant or BC icing. the rest of the cake will be with BC.

I'd just add a little chocolate to the BC to make the spots.

How about the Wilton animal pan? You can use it for several different animals.
