Geez! My daughter would have freaked! She cried at her first birthday b/c she got icing on her fingers and it wouldn't come off and she didn't like the taste. She still won't eat cake.
Smashing a cake in a baby's face: if I'd been there I'd have been shaking with shock and anger and probably wouldn't have said anything. I'd probably be speechless.
Smash cakes: a whole mini cake just for the baby to make a mess of? :shiver: Not my thing. I guess I'm neurotic.
