Smash cakes

Smash cakes have become quite popular to serve at baby’s first birthday!

Try spreading a soft buttercream frosting on the cake instead of hard fondant.



Chocolate pudding for icing works or yogurt frosting instead of traditional frosting.

Blue or black colored frosting may stain hands and clothes easily and be difficult to clean up so opt for an alternative color.  Avoid peanuts in case of allergies.

Contact your local baker or supermarket to see if they offer smash cakes.

Have a backup outfit ready to change baby into after smashing the cake.

Place a tablecloth or disposable plastic sheet underneath the cake to catch crumbs and frosting.
