No. 1 Cutout Cake
Here is a cute smash cake I like from the Betty Crocker website. All you need is Betty Crocker cake mix, an 8” x 4” loaf pan, a knife to create the number one shape using a Betty Crocker template, and some frosting. Add your own twist to the toppings, including baby’s favorite bits of fruit, crushed animal crackers, sprinkles, cereal, and more. Print out this template and use it as a guide.

Expert Tips from Betty Crocker:
For a fun sprinkle cake simply frost the entire cake in white frosting and cover with sprinkles.
*For all chocolate and devil's food cake mixes, use only 1 cup water.
For a healthier first birthday cake, add bananas to the mix! Make cake as directed in recipe above--except use 1 box Betty Crocker® SuperMoist® yellow cake mix, 1 cup mashed very ripe bananas (2 medium), 1/2 cup vegetable oil, 1/4 cup water and 3 eggs.
