What about a large pink pillow cake with a little tiara and scepter on top? Then you could make a much smaller "pillow" for the birthday girl's smash cake. You could do it all in pink and make it very sparkly and glittery with lustre dust and disco dust.

I like the pillow/tiara idea. You could also do Minnie Mouse or Hello Kitty. I did a cute ladybug cake for a 1 year old not too long ago.

I was asked to do a 1st birthday as well for a customer and she told me to do what ever and all she wants is a #1 shaped cake with anything on it.....hmmmm

So I am going to do a #1 with polka dots, I have noticed that is the most popular, so I am gonna give it a try and thats an idea for you as well! You can never go wrong really on a 1st birthday cake!! I bet any idea you have will be great!

I think this cake is super cute for a one-year old. You could make it girlier colors.

that is too cute! You can make the back ground a shade of pink and then the rest different shades of pinks or even mix some purple in there!

If you put in "1st birthday pink" as the search criteria in the galleries section you will get endless pics. What you might want to do is go to a party store and look at some invitations etc (could be a brick & mortar store or on-line) and if there is something that catches your eye use that for your design. I personally like bright and colourful cakes for younger kids b-days.

Here are just a few, simple cakes that should be relatively inexpensive:
