This trend started a few years back in the USA, and now has made its way across the pond. You simply get a perfectly good cake, and take photos of your one year old making a royal mess with it. Cake smashes are growing in popularity – and they’re a lot of fun for everyone involved!
Here are some tips collected from cake smash sites.
"My understanding of how important the family is and a natural way of photographing enables you and your family to relax and be yourselves. Experience over time has allowed me to capture what makes each member of your family unique and unforgettable."
The birthday girl or boy
There is a high chance that the birthday child will have no interest in actually eating the cake.
A) hates it and turns to a sobbing mess or
B) loves it, woofs it down and turns into a sobbing mess when you take it away.
Depending on food allergies, sensitivities or family preference you could do a birthday smash bowl of watermelon or a birthday smash bowl of whipped cream with sprinkles or a birthday smear of soy vanilla yogurt with sprinkles. Obviously putting a giant cake in front of anyone is a risky move so adjust this part for your baby and be prepared that things could go horribly wrong (best laid plans and all that)
