I love setting the kids down with balloons and their own cake to smash to pieces, its so festive and you can't beat the expressions most kids give.
This little fella was so excited about his balloons and cake and he kept looking and giggling at the cake the entire time. We sat him down and he was so neat with the cake, just picking off the sprinkles, barely touching the icing. Finally mom smashed his hand into it and it resulted in a minute's worth of crying til he realized there was CAKE underneath it and then he went to town on it eating and smearing.
Love the results, so cute and messy.
