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.

Farm animal cake
Your little one may be a city kid, but he can still nurture his love for barn animals and farm life with this sweet farm cake from Worth Pinning. This homemade cake (yes, it's not store bought!) features two layers (each are six inches round) that are covered in bright blue frosting and fondant. The crafty mom created all of the animals and details herself. Take a look at the "dirt" in front of the barn (hint: it's grated milk chocolate).
