Cake Smash Session
A Cake smash session is such a great idea to do for your baby’s first or birthday.
What to wear for a cake smash session
Keep it simple, some ideas for little girls can be either just a tutu & a headband or a tutu with a top and headband, and for boys a diaper cover with a bow tie and party hat. There are a lot of things you can buy from Etsy.
I have Black, White Pink & Blue paper backgrounds. Or I use my Magnolia wall with a wooden laminate floor.
Props to bring for your cake smash session
As everyones taste Colour schema & ideas are different its best if you bring your own props, I will help you with ideas if you need it and I have some items we can use in the studio already.
- The Cake
- Your Baby’s outfit
- Cake Topper
- Balloons & Banners
Good to know
Not all children like to eat a sweet cake, offer your baby something similar in texture and colour before your session, so that your baby knows that it is food, he or she will be more likely to dig into the cake if you do a practice run.
The cake should be room temperature for the session, it’s not nice to put your hands in to a ice-cold cake.
Tell your cake maker that it is for a smash session so that they make the cake fluffy and soft, a harder cake is hard for your baby to smash.
Bring your baby food spoon this will make him or her more likely to dig into the cake.
