Would You Smash Your Face Into a Cake for Your Birthday?
Once you reach a certain age, birthdays become kind of a drag. But at some point, an enterprising 30-something figured out a way to bring back some of that childhood birthday magic: by smashing her face into a cake and having a professional photographer document the whole thing. Obviously.
It sounds absurd, but it caught on. A Pinterest search will show you that this is an actual trend among people entering, or well into, their fourth decade of life.
The Washington Post first covered the phenomenon last year. But search the hashtag #adultcakesmash on Instagram, and you'll see that this is a movement that is alive and well, with new photos surfacing regularly.
Here's a woman who did it for her 50th:
It’s easy to assume that the people who have embraced cake smashing are desperately clinging to their youth, but the desire to cover your face in frosting seems to stem from a much lighter place. Most of the posts on Instagram come with captions about enjoying life and having fun, like this woman,who wrote"So here’s to acting a fool, laughing, and running full force into the big 3-0."
If smashing your face into your birthday cake makes you happy, I say do you, birthday boys and girls.
