Triple Layer Chocolate 1st Birthday Cake Recipes

Kids love layers of chocolate cake with lots of chocolaty frosting. Here is a soft and gooey chocolate cake recipe that will make you a favorite mommy among all the kids present at the party. This is one of my simple 1st birthday cake recipes that is perfect for every occasion.


  • Sugar – 1 ½ cups
  • Flour – 2 cups
  • Shortening – 1 cup
  • Buttermilk – 1 cup
  • Cocoa – 4 tablespoons
  • Baking powder – 2 tablespoons
  • Cooking chocolate – ½ cup
  • Eggs – 2
  • Mixed fruit essence or extract – ¼ teaspoon


  • Beat the eggs and shortening for 2 minutes with the help of a blender at high speed.
  • Add the sugar and beat until the sugar dissolves and you get a frothy white mixture.
  • Beat in the buttermilk at medium speed.
  • Add the mixed fruit essence and fold lightly.
  • Mix together the flour, cocoa powder and cooking chocolate and keep aside.
  • Add this mixture, one tablespoon at a time, to the egg mix in the blender at high speed.
  • Beat for about 3-4 minutes. You will get a mix of dropping consistency.
  • Grease two 9-inch baking pans and pour the mix equally in the two pans.
  • Bake in a preheated oven at 350°F for 35-40 minutes.
  • The best way to check if your cake is done or not is to insert a toothpick in the center of it. If it comes out clean then your cake is done.
  • Let it cool on a wire rack before taking it out of the pan.

To prepare the layers:


  • Melted dark and white chocolate – 2 cups
  • Icing sugar – 3 cups
  • Butter – 3-4 sticks
  • Vanilla essence – 4 drops

To prepare:

  • Melt the butter with the chocolate on a double boiler.
  • Let the mix cool and add 2 cups of icing sugar and vanilla essence. Mix well.
  • Spread the mix on one of the cakes and put the other cake on top of it. Press lightly.
  • Use the rest of the mix to cover the cake from all sides and evenly on the top.
  • Put the cake in the fridge for about an hour to let the chocolate set.
  • Once the chocolate is set, dust the remaining icing sugar on the top and the sides of the cake to give it a ‘fairy tale’ look.

Tips to add to the chocolate cake recipe:

  • Use a flat spatula dipped in warm water to spread the icing on the cake for even layers and smooth spreading.
  • You can even put the icing in a piping bag and use it to decorate the sides of the cake.
  • Use some regular grated chocolate on top of the icing for one more chocolate layer.
