Sprinkles Smash Cake

We have all seen those adorable pictures of babies tearing away at a cake in celebration of their first birthday. The trend of cake smashing has recently become a popular event and I see more and more friends doing it now! We spend all this time teaching our children proper table manners and how to eat with a fork and spoon. Then we present them with this rare occasion in which they have permission to do as they please with a delicious little cake. The results are messy and precious all at the same time, I have yet to see a cake smash that didn’t bring a smile to my face! Do you have a baby that is approaching their one year mark and you would love to host a cake smash of your very own?

Here are a few of Betty Crocker’s favorite first birthday smash cake recipes

  • No. 1 Cutout Cake – This little cake says, “I’m one!” in a big way. Add your own twist to the toppings, including bits of fruit, crackers, sprinkles, cereal and more.
  • Peas & Carrots Smash Cake If you’re looking to sneak some fruits and veggies into baby’s first sweet treat, this round smash cake is your best bet.
  • Polka Dot Smash Cake – Encourage your budding artist to create a messy masterpiece with this two-layered, three-inch round smash cake. The red confetti polka dots and turquoise-frosted cake will create swirls of color.
  • Sprinkles Smash Cake Transform baby’s favorite toy into an edible creation. All you need is a No. 1 cut-out template and sprinkles for a cute contrast.
  • Striped Mini Smash Cake – Pastel frosting with bright orange stripes and polka dots make this two-layered round cake beg for baby’s attention.
  • Confetti Cake Stack – Confetti sprinkles make this mini smash cake sweet and simple.
