I was thinking about doing one layer instead of 2. What do ya think?

One layer is all I do and that's plenty cake for a one year old.

I use a 4"...some times a carve it to match the main cake. Like a mini fish, a baseball, etc. Also, I offer my smash cakes complimentary. i figure, this is the only the first of many birthdays.....Julia
