Are you familiar with the term "smash cake"?

To me "smash cake" sounds like some cool new phrase used to talk about a pretty girl; like if they made a Wayne's World in 2014 Wayne might say to Garth "That Cassandra, she's a real smash cake."  And Garth could reply "Yeah, she's a double chocolate fudge smash cake."

But no, the expression is apparently used in reference to a small cake you feed a one-year-old at his/her first birthday party.  The premise is that the child has never eaten dessert before, so when the kid turns one it's given an entire cake to go nuts on.  I guess this is common knowledge in some circles, but for me it was a bit of a surprise to witness for the first time.

And here I was living all these years under the false assumption that one-year-olds didn't even need birthday parties, because, you know, they're one.

I'm discovering a lot about cakes and babies in my advanced age...
