Top 25 Most Beautiful Smash Cakes

Most Beautiful Smash Cakes

For the uninitiated, a “smash cake” is a cake that has been made for the express purpose of being destroyed, typically by a little tyke celebrating their first birthday. Admittedly, it’s a concept that probably doesn’t make much sense outside of parenting circles.

To inspire those who want to join the cake-smashing tradition, here’s my shortlist of the 25 most beautiful smash cakes. While most of these mini cakes probably didn’t end up smeared across the face of a one year old, they are all sure to inspire you.

Pink Buttercream Mini Cake

I'm not sure what's more beautiful, the handmade wooden cake stands by father & daughter shop Herriott Grace or the beautiful cakes daughter Nicole makes to show them off. Either way, this mini cake is absolutely perfect in pink.

    Those are not smash cakes for 1 year olds! While they are pretty, no mother, I hope, would NEVER put whole pecans or unpitted cherries on a cake for a little one!
