what size do you usually make for a smash cake? I've never made one and I was recently asked to. Not sure if I should go with a 6 inch. Thanks!

most do 6" -- single layer is enough.

I do 4" sometimes

I agree with Doug.

If I do a 6", it's a single layer...4"-2 layer

Their design, I charge...My design, no charge(on 1st bd only)

Sometimes, they're shaped...but the overall servings is approximately 2-6

Hi Ladybug78 - I will chime in...
A smash cake is the cake that is given to the child to "destroy" and "smash" all on their own, so that the guests can have the real cake. Most of the time they match or they coordinate with each other.
Its kinda funny when you think about it.. having your child all over the cake and then turning to everyone and saying.. "now.. who wants a piece?" LOL icon_eek.gificon_lol.gificon_eek.gificon_lol.gif

This way the birthday boy/girl have their cake and the guests have their cake. icon_biggrin.gif

Thanks KammKakes
How funny, and here I am thinking I am missing some fancy new cake term. I am cracking up. Thanks
