The link below was a cake under the exact same circumstances.  My friend lost her baby when she was only 18 days old.  She wanted to mark her first birthday with a cake, so this is what I made for her...  no words except the name.    It's pretty, but slightly understated (compared to many 1st birthday cakes).

I think your cake is a perfect example. Beautiful cake by the way!

I also wanted to say that I pray for God's peace to be in the hearts of all the family.

My little baby daughter, Ashlyn, passed away suddenly on March 25, 2011 at the age of 10 weeks 2 days.  For her first birthday on January 12, 2012 I did do an angel baby cake.  It was the most appropriate for me.

She probably doesn't know what to do so you have to ask her in a different way.  Will there be children at this party or just adults.  Will there be balloons (what color) and games for the kids or just a quiet gathering.  Will she be decorating the house - with what and what colors.  I love the cake that was shown in pink, very appropriate, classy, not over the top but cute none the less.  I would go with something like that.  Your poor heart will be heavy as you decorate it.  I don't envy you :-(

I realize it has been quite a while since I posted about this cake, things have been busy around here and I haven't had a chance to get on. I wanted to update you all on what I ended up going with. I did a design on paper, in the design I avoided angels as suggested, and then sent my niece the picture so she could approve it. Simple, with a lot of beautiful flowers, and a number 1 on top. Upon seeing it, she told me she would like it to have an angel on the cake. So here is the cake that became our angel baby's first birthday cake.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I want to thank everyone for their suggestions, and send my sympathies to the mothers who have lost children of their own. I have two of my own children, and one on the way due in October, and when I think of what she is going through my heart aches so deeply. It was with a very heavy heart that I brought this cake to her. When I had the cake together, she just stared at it for what seemed like forever, and I knew that I did ok. Not many people came, even though she invited many, I think it is hard for people to understand her need to celebrate this day. I get it. It was a short party, mostly we hung around and talked, and afterwards they brought gifts to Peyton's grave(I was unable to attend this part, as I had to work.) I think that this was quite possibly the most important cake I've ever made. And the saddest. But I was happy with how it turned out.
