Wife, Mummy, Nurse: Betty Crocker Smash Cake

Betty Crocker Smash Cake

Over two years ago, I was planning my daughter's first birthday cake. Since I am not creative when it comes to baking and decorating cakes, I just make a 13 x 9 strawberry cake, with strawberries and whipped cream on top. Charis loved it and made a huge mess. Crumbs ended up everywhere. Many happy memories were made that day.

For baby #2, I'm already planning to have a smash cake on his or her first birthday with the help of Betty Crocker's smash cake recipes. What is a smash cake? It is an individual cake for a baby when they turn one. It's so cute and adorable to see them make a mess and enjoy every single lick and bite.

A few of my favorite ideas are:

If you want to sneak in fruit and veggies, mix bananas in to the
batter and combine pureed carrots, cream cheese and
 yogurt for the frosting. Top the cake with 
peas for a precious pop of color. 

Confetti sprinkles make this mini smash cake 
sweet and simple. 

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.
