People started asking me for smash cakes. I’d done 4 successful fondant cakes at this point and had no idea what a smash cake was. Turns out a smash cake is a small (or large) soft cake covered with frosting and no fondant. Smash cakes are for little feller birthdays so they can destroy them and look super cute.
This cake came from my brain through the packaging the mom ordered for her party. In the upper left corner you can see the napkin with the 1 and the turtle. He had a shirt with the logo as well. This was my attempt to match the party theme with a smashable 3D turtle. The turtle is just a large cupcake baked in a small metal mixing bowl – then flipped upside down.
