Octopus Squash Birthday Cake

My baby is one! I made chocolate bean cupcakes for everyone else, but for my highly sensitive baby, I wanted to make her a cake she could squish, cover herself in, and eat without any reactions. So far homemade yogurt, mashed avacado, pre-chewed meat, and butternut squash are happy foods for her. So I cooked up a squash until it was nice and mushy, and squished and squashed and molded it into an adorable little octopus. Little bits of broccoli made the face, and my baby had a marvelous time.


  1. I love it! For my son's first birthday we had butternut squash as well :o) But I wasn't nearly as creative as that!

  2. I am super impressed. :) What a good mommy!!!!

  3. so nice to see something so appropriate. I was mortified to see two one year old twins both given supermarket cakes (nasty icing etc) that were huge, and they ate almost all of it. Knowing what I know now about insulin sensitivity I am really anti giving any child anything processed like those hideous cakes.

  4. That is one of the cutest cakes I've ever seen! How creative!
