My son is about to turn one in December and we plan to give him his own cake to smash. Right now I'm leaning toward doing a mashed potato frosted cake so it's not all sugar and sweets, but if I had to pick one of Betty's I'd pick the peas and carrots cake. So while I don't have any photos of his first cake smash, I do have photos of the cake I made him when his adoption became legal. "JOINED BY LOVE"
