Candie, 40, shared the moment on her TikTok account and has since had to defend her husband after three million people watched the video, and then thousands shared their opinions with some calling his behaviour “a red flag”.
In the clip, the couple is seen standing behind their child’s high chair, ready to sing Happy Birthday with a smash cake.
A smash cake is a small iced sponge that people give their children to dig into with their hands, “smash” it and get messy. It’s popular in America and is gaining popularity in the UK.
The cake is placed in front of their child and the family starts to sing, once finished, Candie removes the candles and lets her son dig in. But the one-year-old doesn’t know what to do and everyone is left disappointed.
@candie1983 The time I wanted to choke my husband for putting out son smash cake in my face, surrounded my family i had just met for the first time. I had long look forward too our son 1st party and the family pictures… we didnt get but one photo before i had to shower. Not sure why he thought this was a good idea… I cried like a baby at the memories lost, cake was even cut while i showered If he does tbis ever again, he wont live to talk about it. #firstbirthday #ourson#12months #1stbirthday #firstbirthdayparty #fyp #foryoupage #husband #dumbhusband #notcool ♬ original sound – Candie Mulroy
There are shouts from the family for the baby to “get stuck in”, but Candie was heard explaining why her son was unsure of what to do: “He’s not usually allowed to make these kind of messes, so he’s like ‘wow this is something new.’”
The baby is seen gently grabbing the cake and experiencing the icing between his hands before someone suggests the dad feed him some of the icing.
Another family member is seen going up to the baby and the high chair and swiping some icing off the cake before dabbing it on the baby’s nose – seemingly for a photograph.
Then, the dad grabs his baby’s hand and smashes it straight into the cake, and someone behind the camera remarks: “He’s [the baby] like ‘I’m not sure how I feel about this.’”
The moment is then over and the dad picks up the cake, turns to his wife and jokingly goes to throw it in her face. Someone is heard saying “do it” but Candie responded: “No”.

Her husband asks if she’s sure, and she goes to lick the edge of the cake, but he smashes it right in her face and everyone cheers.
When Candie posted the video, she added the following caption: “The time I wanted to choke my husband for putting out son smash cake in my face, surrounded my family I had just met for the first time.
“I had long look forward too our son 1st party and the family pictures… we didnt get but one photo before I had to shower.
“Not sure why he thought this was a good idea… I cried like a baby at the memories lost, cake was even cut while I showered. If he does this ever again, he wont live to talk about it.”
Thousands of comments were left, one read: “That dad was 100 percent making it about him.”
“Him humiliating you and finding joy in it is enough to leave,” another wrote.
A third suggested: “The way he grabbed the cake and used that tone in the beginning was the first red flag.”
“At the beginning when he said ‘Just give him the CAKE!!!’ red flags from the beginning,” another comment claimed.
Candie followed up the video with a second to “answer questions about the situation and party”.
She said: “He is not by any means a s****y father. He’s a damn good daddy. We have our issues, absolutely, like any other married couple.”
Candie said she can now laugh about the situation but did admit it “sucked”.
