Your Cake Smash session is coming up soon! Very exciting!
Please read through the below Frequently Asked Questions.
How should we prepare for the cake smash?
A little nap and snack before coming in for the session is great! Lots of normal routine. It is really a 'go with the flow' kind of session. We spend a little bit of time at the beginning of the session getting your baby warmed up to us and ready for some giggles! This can take some time.
What should baby wear?
Please dress your child in something cute and simple! Something comfortable that is well-fitted and that you do not mind getting covered in cake! Rompers and dresses are always a good idea. Once you have a theme picked, we can help in the clothing department with recommendations on where to shop. You may get some inspiration from our other Cake Smashes shown on our social media. You may also get a little cake on you so a change of socks or clothes is always good to have!
What do we bring?
* Cake smash outfit (keep in mind they will get cake on it!)
* Lots of baby wipes
* Washcloth and towels (to scoop bub up after the bath)
* Sippy cup/water bottle
* Change of clothes
What are the Cake ingredients?
Vanilla - 5" tier cake!
* Cake - Sugar! Butter, whole eggs, vanilla extract, full cream milk, and flour.
* Buttercream - Butter, solite icing sugar, egg whites
* Colours - Americolor gels
* Toppers - Bakels fondant decorations
The cake is professionally made by 2 Chefs and a Cupcake. If your child has any allergies, please advice so we can order the cake in line with those dietary requirements.
What to expect:
We spend a few minutes at the beginning of the session having a play with some balloons and maybe a game of peek-a-boo! This will help your child warm up to us. You will then be able to move them to the setup. I will capture some before-cake smash photos (before the mess begins!) and once we get some smiles we bring out the cake! Then the real fun begins! Following the cake smash, we tidy up the mess and bring out the little bath ready for splashes and more cute photos. This is why it is important to bring a towel.
About the studio:
We have a sink available to wash any cake off - please just ask! The studio is airconditioned. There is a farm walk, cafe and plant nursery just across the road at the Lifestyle centre. During the session there will be lots of laughs and fun! It is always great if you can join the fun so we can get those happy shots!
