    I attended my Great Nieces first Birthday party yesterday. Her mother presented her with a Smash Cake.
    It took a while for her to start playing with it. She was very polite and "lady-like" about the whole thing
    and didn't get too messy. Eventually she mangled it pretty good!

    The first time I saw this was at my Great Nephews first Birthday several years ago.
    The second they put that cake in front of him he went for it like a pro!
    The more we laughed the more he got into it... It was pretty entertaining!
    He was all smiles and cake was everywhere!

    Weird subject for a guy to start but just curious - When did this trend get started?

    My minions each had a cupcake to pose with for a pic then enjoy/destroy to celebrate their first birthday.
    All had different approaches.

    Minion #1 had a Bert (from Sesame Street) figurine that he used to smash it to bits. He had no interest in tasting any of the cupcake. His pic shows him in tears while the cousin on his left is trying to console him and the cousin on the right is trying to steal Bert and/or the larger remnants of the cupcake.

    In his year, Minion #2 threw his cupcake from his high chair. Grandma gave him a replacement. He chucked that too! His pic shows him with a cupcake in flight!

    Minion #3 just went for the frosting! (Takes after her dad on that one! :D) Cute frosting smile for her photo!


    Cupcakes for their cousins. Sometimes cupcake mayhem ensued at the kids table, too!
    We had a large sheet cake for the adults to enjoy. Not too messy there...

    I remember doing this for my daughter when she was about 2 or 3, she's now 18. I don't remember calling it smashed cake but she certainly did enjoy having her own to eat it how she wanted, making it a yummy mess. I have the pics so I can definitely remember it...:cry:Mom's memories...

    This is a potentially dangerous practice that teaches children that if they smash something good, they will get laughs from their colleagues. Most of these children grow up to be NCO's and supervisors.

    I blame the parents. And society.

    I thought it was just me getting old and cranky, but I agree with you. When I see stuff like this, I don't think, "Oh, how cute!" I think, "My dad would have beat me (not at 1 y.o., but you get the idea) for destroying something they paid good money for or my mom worked hard to make." Like I said, old and cranky. I want to smack parents for most of the stuff I see on Facebook these days. Then again, I'm a high school teacher and I pay the price every day for other people's poor parenting.
