Your baby is approaching the big ONE and you’re filled with lots of big emotions. How did this year go so fast? How did they get so big already? What will they be like as a toddler?
As they’re learning and discovering new things every day, a cake smash session is a super fun way to not only celebrate, but to document, this big milestone. Some babies love getting the chance to bite into their own delicious cake, while others just love the opportunity to get as messy as possible. And then there are the babies who absolutely hate their cakes! Parents are always surprised by what category their baby falls in.
We love helping you come up with theme ideas that match your vision, and represent your little human during this stage of life. We’ve found that a good starting point in choosing the theme of your cake smash session is making a list of all the things they really seem to enjoy, be it a type of food, a song, a toy, an animal, a tv show, or a character. Then start searching online for cake and decor inspiration for your top choices. Consider the aesthetic and the color palette, and see what strikes you the most. We love this part of the process, and once you give us a couple ideas you’re considering, we hit the ground running.
We love a good play on words, but that definitely isn’t required! If you’re more into keeping things simple and sweet, we can take direction too. Ultimately, we just want to help you achieve your vision for your baby’s perfect cake smash session celebration!
Here are some recent theme ideas we’ve done, and we honestly love every single one.
In addition to creating fun and beautiful setups – including making our own balloon arches! – we also work with you and one of our designated bakers to conceptualize a perfectly on-theme cake. Worried about food allergies? We’ve got you covered! Just let us know any of your concerns ahead of time, and we’ll take care of it. Baby’s safety is always our number one priority.
Interested in scheduling a cake smash session? We offer two packages, and you can find all the details here.
Our Simply Cake Smash session includes just the themed cake smash setup background, but we do photograph baby on the setup before adding the cake so that you get some photos before the mess begins too. We also put baby in a tub at the end of the session for some cute bath time photos.
Our Cake Smash Plus session includes everything you’d get with the Simply Cake Smash session package, along with family photos and additional unthemed photos of the birthday babe as well.
