With Eden’s first Birthday quickly approaching, I knew I wanted to plan a “cake smash session” for her. This is a fairly recent trend where you put your baby in front of a cake and let them do whatever they want with it. They can eat the cake, smash it, play with it, or do whatever their little heart desires. It’s a fun way to document their first taste of sugar and see what they do when given the freedom of eating whatever is in front of them.
Instead of having her cake smash at her birthday party, I wanted to do it ahead of time to avoid the mess and hassle of taking her away from her party for a bath. When Eden was born, we thanked our wonderful nurses with a box of pink sprinkled donuts so I thought this was the perfect alternative to the traditional cake smash. After Eden’s afternoon nap she was woken up to the sweetest surprise ever…I hope you enjoy the photos as much as Eden enjoyed her donuts!
