usually for a first birthday, for the baby to smash and get all over the face for cute pics.

so I guess I could stop looking for smash cakes in the recipe section, huh . . . icon_redface.gif

(I honestly thought SMASH was an acronym for some really awesome cake recipe like WASC)

I offer a free smash cake with every 1st birthday cake ordered. Parents really love that they are getting something for nothing. It is a great idea so that little johnny can stick his hands all over the smash cake for photo ops without touching the cake everyone else will eat.

This is such a cute idea...

... it's not something that's done in the UK.

I always wondered about the health issues of a sick child blowing out the candle (sometimes those blows are a little wet). I'm a germ-a-phobe myself. I like the idea of having a separate cake for the child to destroy at their leisure, but there sure is a lot more work involved in decorating a second cake.

Relznik, I LOVE your signature line!

It must be something that is specific to certain regions.

Where I live, everyone has a smash cake for a first birthday. I don't understand why we think a one-year-old must "play" in their cake, kind of gross actually, but we do it. icon_rolleyes.gif
