I love children’s birthdays. The excitement, energy, laughter and fun is such a great combination. And there’s just something about that very FIRST birthday that is extra special. Usually, the guest of honor is pretty unaware of the specific reason for celebrating, but being surrounded by people they love, brightly wrapped packages and CAKE clues them in that it’s a very special day. Yes, CAKE. For many kids celebrating their first birthday, it’s also their first opportunity to eat cake and most of them are pretty impressed!
Cake smash sessions are now being offered for children turning one and they are SO much fun. Plop a sweet little cake in front of your birthday boy or girl and just imagine the results!
Miss Ava hesitated for less than a moment before she started to investigate her cake! She was very intrigued by it.
And once she got her first taste?? Well, she was a very busy girl from that moment on! There was no frosting left unexplored!
I don’t think she could believe her good fortune as she continued to devour her cake and all her parents and I did was laugh! Had we lost our minds? She didn’t care! It was all about the cake for Miss Ava!
When she had finally done all the playing, touching and tasting she could stand, Miss Ava sat back and reflected on her experience. She was very focused throughout her cake smash, but she was clearly loving every moment of it. The aftermath was impressive to be sure! And her mom reported that she went home and took a great nap! All that cake smashing can really wear a girl out, you know!
If you have a child with a first birthday coming up, consider a cake smash!! I guarantee you’ll love the results and will enjoy looking back on these photos for many birthdays to come! The adorable little cakes are created by Sally’s Sweet Shoppe in Genesee Depot (a sweet little bakery you REALLY must visit sometime!) and are included in the package price.
