We decided to do a cake smash photo shoot with Bubba, before his big day! I wanted to be able to capture his reactions to the cake, and to have a chance to “practice” eating/smashing the cake before his party (sometimes he can be a bit weird by messy food on his hands).
I made the cake myself, and found the ombre icing tutorial here. I think it turned out great!! (not as great as the woman’s that I tried to copy, but pretty good for my first try!)
After I took some pictures of the cake, we presented it to Bubba… he was a little unsure at first…
He REALLY liked the candle… he wanted it, but wanted to make sure it was ok that he took it!
Daddy had to push his hand into the cake to get him to understand he was allowed to touch it!
After this photo session it was BATH TIME!! Can you imagine why?? I am so glad we did a “cake smash” (practice session)! It was loads of fun and helped Bubba understand he could touch the cake when his party happened the next day!
Did you do a cake smash photo session for your child’s first birthday??
