I've had my 1st request for a side smash cake and was curious to know a good size to use.

I've done 4 and 6" cakes. A few customers have wanted jumbo cuppies

I do one layer 4" cake. I offer this free for a first birthday with the purchase of a cake. Design is up to me though, not the customer. But i do make it to match the cake in some way.

I make them for free with a 1st birthday cake order. I do a 3" 2 layer cake or a filled jumbo cupcake - which ever I'm in the mood to make!

I made a 4" for my granddaughter. I looks like a whole lot more once it is smashed to smithereens! LOL

I use a 4" cake and also offer it free with all first birthday cakes. I was doing a 6" and that was too much...I think the 4" looks more like a little cake than a cupcake.

I also do a 4" round.

I do a 6' round so there's room for some decorations. I also only use buttercream so the little person can get hold of it and make a good mess. I've also read here on CC about fondant being a choking hazard, something I'd never thought about.

6" single is the standard here.

I also do a 6 inch single layer. I do not use any fondant decorations on it. Lately, I have been doing a 6 inch double layer for use in 1st birthday professional pictures. The mom's like the taller ones because they show up more in the pictures.
