For my daughters first birthday, I didn't want to let her load up on sugar and fat. She is that baby who would actually eat the cake! It was important to me to serve her a healthy first birthday cake. I wanted to capture this moment on camera, without all the junk that's in traditional cake. So I dug around the web and found a great Banana and blueberry cake recipe. I then needed to find an icing recipe to top this healthy cake recipe.
I had a hard time deciding about what icing to use because I wanted something without tons of sugar. I don't like all the artificial stuff in cool whip, and wasn't completely happy with using whipped cream, since I wanted to be able to decorate the cake. I was delighted to find an awesome whipped cream frosting with cream cheese recipe! It tasted heavenly and only has 1/2 cup of sugar!!!! Best of all, the cream cheese makes it stiffer so you can decorate with it!
I tweaked the cake recipe (shown below) and added a little pink food coloring to the icing and decorated this birthday cake! I used decorators tip #16 to make the rosettes. If you don't know how to make them, they are easy to do and you can learn how here, (Wilton Technique- Rosette)
