let them eat cake!  
jack is going to be a year old tomorrow. we are having some friends and family over in the evening for some cake (dairy queen ice cream cake! yum!) and coffee/tea/beverage of choice.

im curious... i belong to an lj community where a lot of the kidlets are about to turn one (or already have), and i hear a lot about this "give them a little cake to smash up" for the kid's first birthday.

ive never come across this before: the little cake for baby to demolish. is this a relatively new thing? (i don't think i had it at my first birthday) am i bad mommy for not wanting my child to bathe in cake?

inquiring minds want to know! :)

When my son turned a year old, I gave him regular cake for his main party, and a piece of ice cream cake for his little daycare party. He did really well with it. I guess it all adds up to what mom wants...but pictures with a little cake all over the face are precious in my opinion :grin:
