Thanks

Wouldn't that just be cake? icon_lol.gif



What are you looking for specifically? Plain yellow cake with BC?

I believe most toddlers like just plain yellow cake and plain icing - they can't really appreciate different flavors. Toddlers do well with basic flavors. I remember one of my nieces used to really turn her nose up at chocolate as a toddler, but now at 16, is a chocoholic.

Basic vanilla or chocolate sponge with bc should do it. You could always do a banana or apple filling but in my experience they tend to eat mostly just the icing!! icon_lol.gif

My daughter still just likes the icing (and fondant!!) and she is five...no interest in the cake, just the icing. So cake flavours are lost on her!! I was vote for a plain vanilla or yellow cake too...I know a lot of little ones who don't like chocolate at that age...

Well my little girl is turning 4, and asked for 3 tiers for her birthday - Strawberry, Chocolate, and Vanilla!

maybe she mentioned "toddler friendly" to let you know that children would be eating it, so that you would not use any alcohol in it. Just a guess. If she wanted a cake with less sugar, she should have been more specific and not expected you to read her mind on what "toddler friendly" means to her...

My daughter eats alsorts of flavours at 3 and won't touch icing or frosting unless it has very little sugar in it.
Maybe ask the customer what she ment by 'toddler friendly' as I would of thought no alchol or very little sugar.

snocilla my daughter wants 2, 2 tier cakes for her birthday so that she can get more flavours and eat more cake icon_lol.gif

Yeah, my daughter actually picked about 5 or 6 flavors, but I made her limit it to 3. Kids are so funny!

I have a 4yo boy and a 6yo boy. They both ask for chocolate cake with plain buttercream and oreos somewhere in it or on it. Of course they will eat any flavor though! My 22 month old daughter hasn't refused any cake either.

For the last two toddler/childrens cakes I've made, I've done wasc with an Oreo filling(just my regular BC mixed in with crushed Oreos) they're always a huge hit with the little ones and grown ups.

Definitely get more info and clarification from the client. "Toddler-Friendly" has so many possible meanings and is way too vague. Does the kid have allergies? What are their favorite flavors? Does the mom possibly mean she wants a Vegan recipe? A cake design/serving option which isn't super messy?

apple sauce is like sugasr is disguise - if the customers problem is sugar,t heres only so much you can do - id be suggesting she sticks to small slices
