Mum from Victoria, decided to do something a little different for her son’s first birthday.

A member of a Facebook group that shares cake creations, Liz said she wanted to do a cake smash photo shoot for the invitations to Alex’s birthday, which happens to also fall on Halloween!

“I was so excited when I found out we were having a Halloween baby, so I’ve been plotting for a year,” Liz tells  Daily Mail.

Using just two simple sponge cakes, some cream cheese, and pureed raspberries, Liz served up a very convincing human brain cake for little Alex to tear apart, all while he dressed up as an adorable zombie, shares Daily Mail.

“I’m not much of a baker so I was pretty happy with the end result,” Liz tells Femail.

“Then we just set him up in the backyard, used a little bit of eyeshadow, and a torn shirt.”

Liz was so happy with the end result she shared it to the cake group on Facebook.

“I wasn’t sure about sharing it at first because I was worried that there could be a bit of negativity, but we had great reactions, most people thought it was hilarious,” she says.

You may recall the Zombie themed first birthday party we shared in the past. Read more on that here.

  • Oh My Lordy….it looks horrible but I bet it tastes wonderful and they had so much fun.


  • Oh my goodness lol I think my daughter would totally enjoy this as she loves Halloween!!!
    Something so different, it’s like a breath of fresh air.


  • Yeah, it’s totally not my cup of tea but each to their own.


  • It doesn’t look as though it was cut and shared at all. Surely the Mum could have come up with a better idea than that. What about something that looks like a pumpkin…..or a black cat?

    • It’s a smash cake, it’s not meant to be cut up and shared. It’s meant to be smashed by the birthday girl or boy


  • As long as he enjoyed his cake that’s all that matters. I love the photo


  • I think it’s a bit creepy lol.


  • I don’t get the smash cake phenomenon. And when I first saw this cake it made me want to throw up. Each to their own, though! Did the little fella enjoy it?? Not too sure.


  • I just don’t get the smash cakes. It seems like such a waste of a cake to me.


  • Definitely something very original for her kid!! :-)


  • A great Halloween birthday cake!


  • Hahaha cute. Such a fun and creative way to remember his first birthday.


  • Aw woe, that looks scary real. A bit lugubrious though.


  • Not something I would have done – I hate mess.


  • Love love it.
    What better way to spend his birthday on Halloween.
    Way too go Mum!!


  • Not to my taste at all.


  • This cake is absolutely awesome! With Warewolf vs. Vampire and now Zombie movies, shows etc. This is just so relevant right now, *topical* and very creative.


  • Each to their own … not my cup of tea .


  • I find it a bit creepy but if that’s what floats your boat I guess it’s harmless fun!
