To celebrate this first, Micah's dad requested a chicken cake, so I made her a hen cake with several mini cupcake chicks.
Since it was her birthday, I wanted to let her, and her parents have the fun of a babies first birthday cake eating experience, but Micah's parents do not feed her sugar, so we had a bit of a hurdle. I came up with the "fake-cake pop" This was made the same way you would make a real cake pop, or cake ball, with just a few changes. I used a piece of whole wheat bread, pulsed it in my Magic Bullet until it was just crumbs, mixed in a little butter, and then pressed it with my hands to make a ball. It looked more like a meatball than a squashed piece of bread, but after I covered it with colored cream cheese "frosting" it looked like the real deal, and Micah loved it.
