12 of the Sweetest Smash Cakes

To smash or not to smash? This is the question you ask at your wedding and at your baby’s first birthday party. The trend of a smash cake is quickly moving from first birthday party possibility to party probability. Giving baby her own cake to puzzle her way through and discover what may be her first taste of sugar is always entertaining. Whether your baby dives in mouth first or tentatively turns the cake to crumbs is yet to be seen. Either way, the tiny (or not so tiny in some cases!) cakes are always adorable and make for a great photo op even if you don’t let your baby go to town with it.
