For his first birthday on Jan. 6, Flynn Christopher received an extra sweet surprise from parents Miranda Kerr and Orlando Bloom: cake!

“It was the first cake he had ever seen or tasted. It was a gluten-free cake and organic, of course,” the model mama, 28, told PEOPLE during her debut as the Qantas airways ambassador on Thursday.

“He put his face in the cake. It was a healthy kick-start to his first birthday.”

The proud parents welcomed a few friends and family to celebrate Flynn’s big day, which aside from cooking courtesy of Kerr, also included plenty of activities for the little ones.

“There were a lot of balloons,” the Victoria’s Secret Angel says. “We had a balloon man come because [Flynn] likes balloons. That was a lot of fun.”

But, after spending time with “five little friends … about the same age,” the birthday boy was ready for some much-needed rest. “He was awake for a couple of hours and then it was nap time,” shares Kerr.

And with Flynn “doing something different” every day — he’s “almost walking!” — Kerr raves that her husband Bloom, 35, is always ready to tackle daddy duty.

“He has really stepped up to the role and is very hands-on,” she says. “It makes me proud that he is such a good dad.”
