Our moms marked our first birthdays with supermarket sheet cakes loaded with frosting that made us bounce for days. Now you can bump it up a notch — but keep the sweet buzz — with smash cakes. These mini cakes are meant for tots to smash with their bare hands, caveman style, and eat until they’re good and messy. Click through our slideshow and get inspired.

Giant Cupcake 
Snag a giant cupcake mold and you're all set to make this giant cupcake smash cake. Baby will love digging into this huge cupcake, while guests can nosh on their own, regular-sized, cupcake bites. A special thanks to Maureen from a la mo and We Heart Parties for sending us this fun idea.
