The most adorable first birthday cake pictures you've ever seen

Aren't you glad you didn't have to clean this up?

Hello there, birthday baby! While some of these pictures are going to make you jump up and grab some wet wipes, they'll also make you giggle because these birthday boys and girls celebrated big on their first birthdays, smash cakes and all!

Pretty in pink

Aren't you glad you didn't have to clean this up?

The anticipation in this first birthday smash cake photograph tells the entire story... or at least the cleanest part of this story! Lucy was ready to go in this picture from her first birthday party, having just dug into the frosting (as you can see from her full cheeks and pink-frosted arms!) and going in for a second attack. We're pretty sure that cake didn't stand a chance.
