First Birthday Smash Cake

First Birthday Smash Cake by The Sweet Spot BlogWe’ve gotten a few emails about Baby E’s first birthday smash cake.  I didn’t realize I never posted all the details of the final product!  Here it is – a super easy first birthday smash cake (and yes, those are Happy Puffs in the bottom left hand corner of the photo – what’s a baby party without them??).

I wanted her first cake to be homemade, but I am not a master baker.  I wanted it to be tasty and cute, without stressing myself out with fancy icing and fondant ‘artwork.’  So I purchased two 5-inch round cake pans, a cute polka dot ‘1’ candle, and pastel colored confetti sprinkles that blended well with the party decor.  We (Nana was very involved!) used Helen Corbitt’s ‘Butter Icing’ recipe (a classic!).  We didn’t color the frosting, just left it the natural creamy color and sprinkled the pastel colored confetti sprinkles on top.

I looked around for a small cake stand that wasn’t breakable for the outdoor party, and then realized I had an 8-inch round Arthur Court footed cheese plate that would be perfect as a smash cake stand.  I think the overall presentation was very nice!

Her party was so cute thanks to some some great Etsy vendors (see birthday banner and birthday sign posts) and a little help from friends and family.  I will post more party pics soon!First Birthday Smash Cake by The Sweet Spot Blog

    That looks so easy to put together – and super fun for the birthday gal, too!

      Thanks Emily! This was super easy – a suggestion for the challenged cake decorator like me. Doesn’t compare to some of the beautiful smash cakes I’ve seen, but thanks to Helen Corbitt it tasted great!
