Hi everyone! I have a question about a smash cake. I am making one for  a babies first birthday and I'm not sure what type of frosting to do. This is my first smash cake to do and I know that children are still developing so I am a little confused which frosting to do. I know SMBC would be light, but I worry since the child is so young. I could do AB but that might be heavy. Anybody have any suggestions? 


The color is also red and I worry about the red getting everywhere. Any tips on this would be great. Thank you everyone!!

I don't recommend red for a smash cake.  It will get everywhere, is very difficult to remove and may stain the child's skin.

Hi Norasmom. Thank you for the advise. That is what I thought would happen with the red. I'm wondering if I could go with a light blue since the party is for a boy..
