If you’re looking to celebrate a special occasion with a cake that’s a little less traditional, you have to try the trendy treat variety that is called a piñata smash cake.

Smash cakes, or piñata cakes, are made with an outer chocolate shell layer that comes in different shapes, colours, and sizes.
