I searched long and hard to try and find just the right cake for my son's first birthday and I made a super choice when I decided on this one! It was very simple to do and very cute! All my guests raved at how complicated it looked, and I just smiled. I did however use strawberry preserves instead of the raspberry, I used applesauce in the cake mix instead of oil, I used fat free cool whip, and I decorated with fruity pebbles, baby oreo's, and colored sugar crystals. This is a great recipe!
