Mum shares her awesome idea for sons 18th birthday and we are totally in love!

Kirsten Smith from Kirsten and co. is a former teacher who is now a successful blogger and business woman.

When she’s not sharing life & style tips, Kirsten’s at the helm of her natural skin care company, Skin Boss.

The busy mum recently shared her son Bailey’s 18th Birthday surprise and we totally adore the idea.

Kirsten shared that Bailey didn’t want a big fancy cake but he does however have a thing for the good old $4 Coles mudcake.

“I have a thing for going big when it comes to planning parties, so it just made sense to order 18 of them”, shared Kirsten.⠀

“I set the cake table up with one cake to celebrate each year and added photos from various birthdays over the years amongst the cakes. The hardest part of the whole process was getting a photo of the finished table!”

Awesome idea!

  • That is a really good idea! I had photo’s on a canvas board with everyone at the birthday signing it. She’s kept it too.

  • That’s a sweet idea! Everyone can have their own cake too! It’s one of those things I’d wanna do but never remember at the right time!

  • Awesome! I’m not sure yet what will happen with my kids when they reach that age, I will let them decide unless they want a surprise!

  • That’s a wonderful idea! My eldest is 18 next week. I’ve started her cake (a traditional fruit cake) in the same design my husband had for his 18th. My daughter saw photos, LOVED it and set about tracking down the same Wilton cake tin design. Such a milestone!
