Well, this past Saturday my baby girl turned 1. That date happened to coincide with my extended family's annual camping trip to Bear Lake. It is a tradition that my kiddos have smash cakes for their first birthdays. In case you have no heard of this, it is a cake that they get all to themselves and basically get to make a mess with. Since we were camping, that rules out making a traditional frosted cake, so what is a mommy to do? My husband came up with the ingenious idea to make her a smash cobbler in a mini dutch oven. I made three large dutch oven cobblers so that everyone could eat some too.

Here is the finished cake, just waiting for us to sing happy birthday.


And here is my sweetie enjoying it.


The flavor was chocolate cake with raspberries. The big cobblers were chocolate with blueberries, chocolate with raspberries, and spice cake with peaches.

My husband wrote more about it here http://www.huntingthemuse.com/2008/07/bear-lake-2.html

Thanks. I am a bit sad that she is already 1; time sure does fly. She is such a sweetie though and watching her eat this made me laugh so hard.

Awesome! I've never heard of a smash cake, but that's really cool. Your little one is adorable!

Attention college kids, stay at home moms, and anyone else who could stand to make a little easy extra money:
PM me about ChaCha. I swear, it's not an ad. I just saved myself on bills with this, and thought I'd try & help =]
