CLEVELAND — We love to celebrate  birthdays on Fox 8 News in the Morning, especially when it’s someone’s first!

Kristi Capel’s daughter Kyndal turned 1 on Monday, so we were ready with the smash cake!

Kiedrowski’s Simply Delicious Bakery in Amherst brought the special treat and while Kyndal didn’t smash it, she definitely enjoyed it!

Watch the video for how she reacted.

We also talked to an expert to learn exactly what you need to know before your child turns 1.

There are many things to consider that you may not have thought of.

See that segment below.

Though Kyndal was the guest of honor, we had a surprise in store for Kristi, too.

Producer Jen Charlton contacted Kristi's family ahead of time and the end result made Kristi tear up on the air.
