1st birthday cake ideas

Hi hounds,

I'd like to bake a cake for my little guy's first birthday. I am a fairly competent home baker but am a bit stumped...I need a dairy-free cake. My little guy has a milk intolerance. While I don't expect him to eat much of it, I'd still like to make something that won't upset his tummy and would be yummy for our guests (14 adults and kids). I'd like something simple and fruit-based...but no blueberries or chocolate (guests have allergies).

I was thinking of a chiffon cake but don't know how to decorate it without a dairy-based icing. I'm not opposed to an icing-free cake but would love some direction in decorating it.

Any help would be much appreciated!
