"Smashed it"

Nothing wrong in the context of "I dropped the plate"

It grates on me when it's used in the context of doing something well.... Christ, I'm getting old!

"the proof's in the pudding"

No it isn't. The proof of the pudding is in the eating.

But if you don't like pudding I really don't know how you prove it.

No it isn't.
It is when it’s chocolate brownies or christmas pudding with rum or brandy in them ;)
