First birthday cake – yogurt and raspberry ice cream cake recipe

The 1st birthday party is very important and exciting…most of all for mommy & daddy 🙂
Even if your little one will not understand very well what’s going on, he will enjoy tasting his bday cake or just playing with it!
I remember Luca digging his little hands in his big slice of cake..before tasting it putting his fingers in his mouth, so much fun!
The tricky part of a 1st bday cake is that you want to offer your little one a healthy and baby friendly cake, but at the same time you want your family and guests to enjoy a yummy cake. yes, it’s tricky.

Instead of cooking two different cakes, I would like to share with you this bday cake recipe, perfect for the summer time or a lovely sunny party day: greek yogurt ice cream and raspberry sorbet cake with raspberry sauce.

Totally baby friendly: no lactose, no eggs, no butter. But at the same time adult friendly: creamy, refreshing and light.

I used fresh raspberries from the farmer’s market, as they are in season and they are sooooo yummy. If you like, you can always use strawberries or other berries and change the sorbet flavor in accordance too!!

    Thank you! I forgot to ask can i play with the measurments? Like for example, less or more coconut icecream/or rasberry sorbet, to make a small or bigger cake?
    & how do i store it in the freezer if i make it a couple of days ahead?

      Hi Sasha! It might need a bit of work and time, but you can prepare both Greek yogurt and raspberry sorbet at home from scratch. I do not have the two recipes on my blog, but if you are interested I can suggest you other food blogs where to find them 🙂 ciao! b
