Went to Publix and got the free first birthday cake put it on his high chair tray and let him play. Took pictures and video

Don’t get blue or black frosting​:joy::joy: OMG it stains and their teeth for the day

I got my son a jumbo cupcake for him. It’s about the size of a large muffin and he enjoyed playing with it but not eating it.

You get him a cake and put it in front of him. Stick his hand in it. Give him a taste. He’ll do the rest.

I did a Walmart first birthday cake with a sheet cake.

A good idea for littles is a dirty frosting cake! Not as much frosting to tear up, or dye things, and also less sugar! Plus they are really cute! Though they have be at two layers to be cute.

My 4th baby just turned one yesterday, and I feel like with every first birthday it’s so so different. My first I went all out and had the perfect cake and she just threw it. :joy::joy: so for my second I did a simple cake and she loved it and ate it nicely. Then my third had way too much frosting on it and it got everywhere, it was a disaster. So yesterday I had a barely frosted, but super cute cake and I was all prepared with a ton of wipes and a change of clothes and my baby wouldn’t even touch the cake. He literally just sat there giggling at it. :joy::joy:

I will say this though, STRIP THEM DOWN TO THEIR DIAPER!! It makes clean up so much easier!! Good luck! :two_hearts:

My kid didnt even eat her 1st smash cake. She barley touched it… :rofl: so my tip. Dont spend to much time or money on a cute cake. Make a cute small cake urself lol

I cheated a bit, store-bought angel food cake added real whipped cream. This cake was just for the baby. Had “real” cake for guests.

Don’t spend a bunch of money, my daughter didn’t want anything to do with her smash cake :rofl::woman_shrugging:

We just celebrated my daughter’s 1st and we just stripped her down to her diaper, put her in a high chair outside and let her go crazy. Then when she was done I carried her to the bathtub and washed her up. She had a blast and I loved watching her. I had my sister in law take pictures for me

I got my son a premade little round 5 dollar cake as his smash cake! He loved it and had more fun playing in it then actually eating it!

Make it yourself. Don’t spend a lot of money on a cake that won’t really be eaten!! :heart:

Let him have fun with a slice.

Depends on if you want him to have sugar or not. Decide on that… Flavors… How big 🤷 If you want him to have a whole cake or just a piece of a regular cake… My son has his own cake… He didnt really smash it though… He devoured that sucker :joy::joy::joy: He even bit his finger and drew blood. Its just fun for the kid and parents 🤷
