Betty Crocker’s Favorite First Birthday Smash Cakes
This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of Betty Crocker. All opinions expressed are 100% my own.
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.
