Harry's First Birthday Cake Smash

1st birthday cake smash

Back in 2013 when Amelia turned one we did a cake smash for her birthday photos, I wasn't going to do one for Harry and it was all a last minute decision but thought as I did one for Amelia's first birthday I had to do one for Harry too. 

I ordered all of the bits I needed last week and decided to make the cake myself again. I had an idea of what I wanted although it didn't turn out how I quite imagined it wasn't too bad I guess for someone who doesn't make cakes, just don't laugh at the icing! I didn't have time to set up a proper backdrop like I did with Amelia's however I did have some black and white bunting which I was able to hang up. I bought the 'one' cake topper for his birthday cake on the day but thought I'd use it for this one too its from Clara Ivy and the little animals are by Schleich which I am building up Harrys collection and thought I'd include them somehow.

Harry being a good eater I imagined would get right in and indulge in the cake, but I couldn't have been more wrong. He wouldn't even touch it at first, but I remember the same happening with Amelia until I broke a little bit off. Once he put his hand on it he seemed to enjoy playing with it but still wouldn't really eat it apart from the frosting. He had a whirl of a time smearing it all over the wall and over the bunting though! 

Here are some of the photos I managed to capture, most are from my iPhone as it was easier to take them with that at the time so please excuse the bad quality.

    We did a cake smash too for our daughters first birthday and she was pretty apprehensive about the whole thing until we broke a piece off and tasted it ourselves to show her it was OK to eat :D
