Hi!  I'm trying to find a cute cake design for my son's first birthday that isn't themed such as trucks, jungle..ducks.  I'm more looking for some kind design that isn't just stripes or polka dots.  I've looked at some online invites to get some inspiration but just haven't found anything that really grabbed me yet.  So I'm open to any ideas, pictures, or even google words I should explore;o)  My 6 year old daughter shares the same birthday as my soon to be one year old but she nicely let me know that there needs to be 2 cakes...which I agree;o)  Thanks in advance!

Camo?

 

Teddy Bears can be either gender at least...

 

Rainbow cake with tie dye icing?

 

Blocks?

 

Candy?

 

Buttons?  (as in cute as a button)

 

I guess all I can think of are themed in a way really...

 

Maybe they help anyhow...

AI really like the looks of cakes that are decorated as exaggerated cakes. Like this http://www.wilton.com/idea/Make-Some-Noise-Cake

Or present cakes. Or how about a #1 shaped cake?

AI just did a google image search for 'boy 1st birthday cakes' and there are a ton of great ideas.

Wow, thank you everyone for taking time to post your suggestions and links!  I gotta say I google argyle birthday cakes and found a really cute one that even had a tie and mustache on it!  Haha!  I was planning on buying/making him one of those cake smashing outfits with the iron on tie so that would fit it great!  My husband thinks it"s funny that I'm already thinking about this (their birthdays are the end of February)  I'm thinking "I've been thinking about this since we found out he was a boy".  Haha!

AI know the feeling. My daughter was born on Halloween, and I've been planning her first birthday party (cake design and all) in my head ever since! My son turns 3 feb 24, and I've been slowly working on party favors and gathering cake supplies for 2 months. :)

How about a toy box  on the cake, with toys in the box as well as scattered around the   toy box, Did one for a friend little boys birthday and they loved it,  I think it might have been a Debbie Brown cake , from one of her books.  Not sure, but it was quite easy, just make your box out of fondant, front and back sides, two ends and a cover,  Dry for at   least 24 hours  glue together with royal icing, model toys to go in box and scattered around top of cake  teddy bears, truck, ball, drum,blocks,train cars,
