Smash Cakes

The best part about being a kid (aside from not having to worry about adult things like bills and being 'responsible') were the kids' parties. The colourful, sugar-filled, high decibel-rated parties which luckily seemed to happen every other weekend. Now that we're adults (boo), we don't often get to enjoy such innocent, rambunctious parties with three-legged and egg-and-spoon races and piñatas. But there's a small Sydney-based business that's making that possible, for both kids and adults alike. Claudia Abrahams is the founder of SydneySmashCakes, the seed of which started seven years ago when Abrahams made the first smash cake for her eldest daughter's 5th birthday.
