cake smash

frequently asked questions

I can provide the cake if you'd like. If so I tend to purchase a lemon drizzle made by OGGS which is vegan and therefore fine for babies who may have dairy or egg allergies.

It's  also a plain simple cake which can be added to with sprinkles and a cake topper faily easily.

You're welcome to bring your own cake but please do not spend too much money/time on it as it will get ruined!

My only other caveats are that the cake must not be chocolate or contain jam or coloured icing as this will stain my flooring.

is cake included?

If you love the idea of a cake smash but not a fan of the mess they create I have a beautiful wooden cake which we can use instead.

It will be presented on a cake stand, with the appropriate numbered topper and your baby can pull it apart and play with it as he/she wishes.

Its a great way to mark a birthday without making a mess or especially good if you're not into the idea your of baby having sugar quite yet!

what is a mess free cake smash?

Yes, if you don't mind it getting messy of course! 

I can always photograph baby in their special outfit before the cake if you'd prefer.

I also have a selection of crowns and hats for you to choose from too which can make great additions to cake smashes, even if they only keep them on for a short amount of time!

can my baby wear a special birthday outfit?

I'll have lots of cloths and soapy water available for you to clean up your little after a cake smash.  Wet wipes wont cut it!

Make sure you bring something for your child to wear on the way home.

As for the mess in the studio, don't worry! I'll clean that up after you are gone. :)

how does cake smash clean up work?
