Betty Crocker, America’s baking expert, surveyed moms and found that the most memorable part of a first birthday party is the birthday cake itself. To help make the moment extra special with a homemade touch, Betty Crocker has created a line-up of easy-to-make birthday smash cake recipes that babies can’t wait to get their hands on.

What do you remember most about your little one’s first birthday?  I made my kids' smash cakes or should I say smash cupcakes.  We did cupcake cake themes for their birthdays!   My daughter had a made from scratch carrot cupcake that she was not happy about her fingers being smeared in the frosting.   My son had a simple vanilla cupcake with a football on the top to go with this theme.  He of course goobled it up and made a complete mess! 

If I could do it all over again, I would love to make the Betty Crocker Watercolor smash cake!  Heck it is so pretty that I wouldn't even mind having that as my birthday cake today!!!  Hint Hint hubs!
Here are Betty Crocker’s favorite first birthday smash cake recipes, perfectly-sized for baby to dig right in!
