Rainbow smash cake. Because 1st birthday photos should be full of colorful frosting smeared on happy little faces.
This little cake accompanied the larger rainbow cake - though it is finished only with buttercream - which is much easier for little fingers to dig into. First birthday cakes come with a complimentary smash cake, if you would like one.

Fandom trash that you can eat.
This cake was designed based on the birthday girl's lock screen - doodles and rainbows and a 'fandom trash' emoji. Rainbow candy-melt covered cake with doodles on rice paper. Rice krispy treat and modeling chocolate emoji and trash can.
A side view of the doodles giving way to rainbow candy goodness
The doodles were drawn in edible ink on rice paper. The cake was covered with rainbow colored candy coating. The emoji and trash can were hand sculpted out of rice krispy treats and modeling chocolate.

Two tiers of cake separated by fondant tentacles. The top tier rests on a simple cardboard structure. The cover is made of chocolate fondant and edible paints.
The cover was modeled after an image of a necronomicon made by MrZarono at deviantart.com. Mine is sculpted from chocolate fondant.
It's coming from inside the cake!

Sometimes you'd rather have pie, or cheesecake, or cookies, or baklava, or ...
Every month I donate at least one cake to Cakes4Kids - a local non-profit that provides birthday cakes to kids in the foster care system. The cakes are usually a simple 8" cake - but I try to make them fabulous for the kids.
