Abigail’s cake smash

Apr 15, 2014 | Babies

Although cash smashes are not really my style of photography, I thought that as I had a cake and a birthday girl at my disposal I should give it a go!

Many of my photography colleagues who do cake smashes regularly told me that often the baby doesn’t like the cake! They are not used to the sweet taste and can be a bit overwhelmed by it. But fear not, Abigail literally wolfed down the cake! We had to take it away from her!!

This AMAZING cake was made by Heidi of That Baking Girl. I asked for a monkey cake topper and gave her the bunting we were planning to use at our party. The rest is the result of her fantastic creativity. The cake exceeded all expectations and tasted delicious! We also had matching monkey cake pops which the kids loved.  I allowed Abigail a few moments with the cake and then rescued it and cut her a slice! I couldn’t cope with the thought of her ‘smashing’ such a work of art!!!
