    Two sisters from Weston run a private bakery specializing in made to order cakes. Check them out at yummyabakery.com or on Facebook. They do regular cakes as well as gluten/casein-free. The strawberry cake is my favorite but all the cakes are great!

      couldn't you make one? For a one year old? Bake a large sheet cake, cut it up and assemble a figure 'one' frost and decorate. Or have a look at Australian Women's Weekly for ideas.

        We get our cakes from Publix.... The 1 year olds at our kids parties give them rave reviews!

        OK, in all seriousness... We have gotten our kids cakes from Publix for the last 6 years (kids are 6 and 7). Everybody loves them. Adults and Kids alike.

          I would agree with the Publix option for a 1 year old.. They have a nice selection, its a good cake(or cupcake cake). They will also give you a smash cake for the baby so he/she can get it all over

            I agree that Publix is the best choice. I know that it might not seem like a supermarket bakery would make great cakes, but most people around here agree that Publix has a great bakery. One of my friends got her wedding cake from Publix and I thought it was quite good.

              I really don't think that Publix makes great cakes. They're fine, standard. I'm guessing the OP isn't trying to appeal to the tastes of a 1-yr-old, and that there will be other guests at the party who will also enjoy the cake. I strongly suggest yummy a bakery. They do standard cakes and cupcakes, but can also do themed cakes (i.e. spongebob, whatever). Really moist and lots of flavors to choose from. You could also look into Doris's Italian Market (Nob Hill and Sunset in Sunrise is their newest location). They have a great bakery. www.dorismarket.com

                    Have never been to this bakery before but, just did a search and it has gotten a couple of good reviews.
