This fun and festive cake was custom designed for a
'Cupcake' themed 1st birthday party.
The cake looks particularly striking in varying shades of green, blue and purple,
which was the color scheme for the party.
The adorable over-sized cupcake serves a dual purpose-
It is the cake topper for this attractive cake, and it is also the 'Smash Cake'**
for the little birthday boy
This is a decadent Dark Chococlate Fudge cake with a fresh strawberry cheesecake filling.

A smash cake is typically given to the birthday child at their 1st birthday celebration, and is to be smashed, smeared, enjoyed and eaten by the birthday boy or birthday girl.
It's a sweet, tactile and completely photogenic way to include your child in a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to get down and dirty with his/her birthday cake -- literally!
Most birthday parties are celebrated with a cake, but now more and more 1st birthday parties boast two cakes, a large decorated cake and a single serving smash cake.
The birthday guest of honor gets to have fun with the smash cake, while the main birthday cake can be enjoyed by the guests, untouched by little hands.
