Let Them Have Their Cake & Eat it Too - Betty Crocker’s First Birthday Smash Cakes!

Smash Cakes are becoming more and more popular for first birthday's and first birthday photo sessions.  When my son turned one, I made him a cute little circus train smash cake and when my daughter turned one, I made her a 3D ducky cake.  Of course, both cakes went along with the birthday party theme and decorations!
