Birthday cake for 1 year old

My baby is almost 1 (OMG! I can't believe it!!!! I was just pregnant with her!). Anyway, my husband kind of wants me to make this:

Rainbow Birthday Cake | The Flourishing Foodie

What do you think? You think she would like it? Or will it be super hard to make and never come out this pretty.
Also, should I let her dive in with her hands and we will eat what she doesn't destroy. Should I make two....Should I just cut her a slice to eat with her hands. What did you guys do for your kids birthdays?

Although I would probably make a vanilla buttercream instead of icing (dont like icing) and use a cake syrup to moisten the layers.

That's a beautiful cake, but to tell the truth, the baby won't care. Let her destroy her own piece and get it all over. I want to see a pic of her with cake in her hair.

A one year old will neither care nor remember (their birthday parties are for the parents, anyway), but it will make for a colorful day.

(Tell husband it was his choice, so he's on clean-up detail.)

Happy birthday to your little one! What a fun looking cake. My daughter just had her first at the end of August. I would say give her a slice, so she can see all the pretty colors. Also, I let my first daughter tear into a cake when she was one and it turned to tragedy when she got overwhelmed by all the frosting on her hands and rubbed it into her eyes. Hope the big day turns out great!

Thanks! My daughter always rubs her food in her eyes but usually its not sticky frosting so she doesn't get that much in her eyes - this is good advice. Slice it is!

Congrats on your daughter's first birthday. Make the cake if you like but I agree she won't care or remember. It might be better to put a favorite figurine on top like Elmo, or Sponge Bob etc.

That really is a pretty cake!
