This milestone is such a special one, and what better way to commemorate it than with a delicious cake and some adorable photos?
If you’re thinking about booking a cake smash session for your little one, read on for everything you need to know. We’ll discuss what to expect during the session, how to prepare, and some tips for making it a sweet and memorable experience for both you and your baby.
To get some great shots of your little one enjoying their cake smash, keep in mind that it can be overwhelming for babies to go from eating bland food to something extremely sweet, so getting them accustomed to the sweetness ahead of time can help. Try giving them tiny tastes of cake over the course of a few days leading up to the cake smash session. That way, it won't be such a shock on the day of and you're more likely to get some great photos!
1.Try giving them some cake to try leading up to your session. Do it over a few days, with a small taste each time
so they get used to the sweetness and it won’t be such a shock on the day.
2. Let them enjoy some sensory play with food, so when it comes time to smash the cake they’ll love getting right stuck into it.
3.You don’t need to spend a fortune on the cake…buy some plain sponges from the supermarket, whip up some plain buttercream icing and make it yourself. Throw some sprinkles on and voilà…the perfect cake smash cake!
It’s super easy and the cake is delicately flavoured for baby & also beautifully soft for smashing!
4. Consider booking a Bubble Bath for your session too…it can be a great back up if baby really didn’t go for the cake…most babies will love a splash in the bath!
Cake smash Sessions can be so much fun, but every baby is different and will respond differently.
So go with the flow and let the fun unfold as it will!
See you in the studio soon.
