Why Every Kid's First Birthday Cake Should Come From Walmart

New parents who are looking forward to celebrating their child's first birthday are most likely already aware of smash cakes. They are the smaller, kid-sized cakes that are made just for the guest of honor to enjoy as they see fit. Whether they want to eat handfuls of cake, hit the cake with tiny fists, or just lean into it with their mouth open wide, smash cakes are made to be completely destroyed. Fortunately, the rest of the party guests can eat a slice of the larger, regular cake that is often accompanied by the smash cake.

For those who are buying their first smash cake and birthday cake duo, there's a secret you definitely need to be let in on. The best place you can actually order the pair of cakes from is Walmart. Of course, Walmart's cakes are pretty standard when it comes to flavors and frostings, but that makes them definite crowd-pleasers. 

Walmart is also a worthy choice when it comes to picking a cake thanks to its range of designs. The retailer is licensed to create birthday cakes featuring a photo or other designs of your child's favorite characters ranging from television and movies to apps even (via Walmart). The bakery also has enough colors of frosting to make almost any custom design you could want too. But these aren't the only reasons you should consider heading to this company's bakery for your birthday cake needs.

Walmart's smash cakes are a complementary addition to your order

The best part of all when you order from Walmart is that you can get a free six-inch smash cake to go with any special order bakery item that's priced at $14.98 or higher, according to Walmart. That means you could order anything from a quarter sheet cake to a three-tiered cake or even cupcakes for your celebration. No matter the size of the party, as long as you spend about $15, Walmart will throw in the smash cake for free.

Another perk of this deal is that Walmart has some coordinating designs between the regular cake and the smash cake that make your decision a lot easier. Each of the coordinating designs comes with several options to choose from such as cupcakes or different sizes and styles of cakes, depending on your preferences. The Walmart bakery themes include Lil' Monsters, Jungle Fun, Deer One, Shark Party, Twinkle Twinkle Little One, Baby Mermaid, and Baby Unicorn. All of them are adorable and can be personalized to make your child's first birthday perfect.

So, don't pay extra for your child's first birthday by ordering and paying for a cake and a smash cake. Browse through Walmart's offerings to see if the bakery's deal can work for you.
