Cam is turning 1! Our sweet friends asked me to make a smash cake for Cameron's first birthday party and I was soooo excited!
As soon as I started my search on Pinterest, I found some of the cutest smash cakes. The one that caught my eye though, was tie dyed! And what kid (or adult) doesn't LOVE sprinkles?!
I wanted to make sure the cake was going to be perfect for the big day...so I made a "practice" cake for the pictures the weekend before.
Here is where my inspiration came from...
- cake recipe from Sweet Home - I used 6 inch cake pans
- frosting recipe from Savory Sweet Life - I made a batch of butter cream frosting and added a packet of Duncan Hines Cotton Candy Frosting Creations
- rainbow sprinkle cake inspiration from The Cake Blog & Best Friends for Frosting
- rainbow sprinkle cake topper from Kojo Designs - this method of making a topper is genius and it’s entirely edible – it’s just melted candy and sprinkles!
This little cake was made especially for the birthday boy to smash and dig into! Here’s how it works: place baby in highchair, place smash cake on tray, let baby go for it, take adorable pictures! I'm pretty sure this smash cake was a success! :)
