Smash the Cake

Smash the Cake shoot is a perfect way to celebrate your baby’s first birthday and my beautiful Granddaughter who recently turned one celebrated the occasion with her own Smash the Cake photo shoot.

It’s hard to believe that Bella’s first year passed in the blink of an eye and before we knew it we were all celebrating her 1st Birthday…

Kirsty and James (Bella’s Mum and Dad) really wanted to mark the year with a party and a smash the cake photoshoot… So the day before the shoot I made her a lovely oversized cupcake (which tasted really lovely) and decorated it with oversized edible daisy’s.

Fortunately Bella loves her food and as such seeing such a lovely unattended cake she promptly got into the spirit of things and helped herself, starting with the daisy’s and as she got braver about the fact that no one was telling her not to attack the cake she got into the full swing of things.

Brandon her brother was a little disappointed that he had never had a cake that he could smash for his birthday, So he was allowed to finish the demolition once Bella had had enough.

After hours of making, baking and decorating of the cake, and several hours wiping sticky cake off the floor and backdrop, it took less than 10-minutes to smash the cake!

However what we have is a beautiful set of images that officially mark Bella’s milestone first birthday.

One of the really special things about Bella is the fact that she is the first girl born into my family since I was born!

What Bella Wore!

Bella rocked the shoot with a beautiful peach coloured Angel Face skirt, a double strand of pearls from Debenhams and a head band with an oversized daisy on it.

One of her gifts was a Pandora bracelet and keepsake jewellery box and she can be seen in one of the photos with the Pandora bag.
