I love watching a little one navigate their way through their first cake. They’re not quite sure what to do at first, why everyone’s starting at them, why they’re allowed to make a giant mess, and oh-my-goodness, what is that delicious sweet heavenly taste?!?!
Sometimes some kids take some time getting into cake, some dive right in. Some get all their limbs involved, hair too, and sometimes some kids just have no interest….and I love every.single.minute.
If you’re thinking about having a cake smash for your kiddo, I highly recommend it! If you don’t want to get a whole cake, some places (like my favorite Torrance Bakery) will create a mini cake, or just head out to the market and get a giant cupcake…it’s going to get destroyed anyway!
Brandon had an absolute blast with his cake in the park, he dove right in without any hesitation!
Max had an amazing Farmer’s Market themed first birthday party and was a bit apprehensive at first, but then demolished his cake!
