It seems the "cake smash" or "smash cake", depending on your preference, has been a tried and true tradition in many homes for years. My Mom has a picture of my brother sitting on the kitchen table, elbow deep in a layer cake with baby blue frosting. His first birthday, and of course he was permitted to play in his cake. Doesn't it seem like that would be a confusing situation for a kid? On any other day of the year it is not acceptable for the baby to play in his food. As soon as he turns the big "1", all we want is to see the little guy covered in frosting and loving every minute of it! As crazy as that seems, the appeal is as strong as ever.
The only difference seems to be the "fancy".
Smash cakes are beautiful works of art!
From pretty pink cupcakes to fun and colorful characters, the cakes steal the show!
Today I bring you this sweet cake smashin' one year old! Bryce McDowell has hit his first milestone and we celebrated with a "Little Monster" themed session. The colors were so fun and the cake was just so creative...not to mention delish! If you'd like to have a fancy cake for of your own, contact the talented Kim's Kakes and Kandys. You can find her on Facebook. The adorable knit outfit was made by Kass McDowell at Crochetmomma2011. You can find her on Facebook as well. And she just happens to be Bryce's Aunt! Paper flowers and banner by Me!!
Enjoy this happy boy and his cake!
