Although there are other moments such as cutting the cake and celebrating with the guests, you will not forget the moments with your baby when you plan to smash a cake. The secret?

He or she will smash it, experience it, cheer and even try to eat it. This is why it is important to capture all these sweet moments to preserve the treasure moments of your cute baby. When grown up, he or she will admire for preserving the memories when you tear with joy.

Timing and scheduling is important

Do you know I planned a cake smash session just after our first birthday party? It was the baby’s nap time and he was not active. He was almost sleepy.
