When a friend asked me to make this cake for their little boy's first birthday, I thought the idea was so cute! With the colors, and basic stars and circles, this cake just screams "little boy!" The cake consisted of marbled fudge and vanilla cake layers with buttercream frosting, and is covered in homemade marshmallow fondant.

And for the first time, I made a matching smash cake that the birthday boy could have all to himself. It's a nice idea so that the birthday kid can smash around in their own cake while not contaminating everyone else's cake. The smash cake was frosted with lots of buttercream. Fondant would be hard for those little hands to dig through.
