Hey, all! Happy Friday. We are so excited to share with you these ahh-dorable birthday photos. There is nothing we ‘do-nut’ like more than a baby’s birthday smash cake especially when it’s done doughnut style. Smash cakes are an important part to any child’s first birthday party or second birthday or any young year for that matter. The cake smash not only makes for the perfect photo opportunity of your little one, but is also a great way to incorporate your child in his or her party (aka a great way to avoid the guest of honor falling asleep at the soirée.)

This single serving plate of deliciousness results in a face full of frosting, sprinkles and a whole lot of smiles. Beware that there may be some heavy duty clean up to follow, but we promise that it’ll all be worth it. Another thing to remember is that you don’t necessarily need to use a cake. We are loving this doughnut smash cake idea. Enjoy!

From the Photographer…

This little girl was turning two years old, so her mommy and I planned this cake smash session for her. I thought that doughnuts for a cake smash session would be unique, instead of an actual cake or cupcake. Her mom got her some adorable outfits to wear for the cake smash. We were going for a pastel look, so she decorated the doughnuts in pretty pale pink and lilac icing with candy sprinkles.

This little girl was in such great spirits eating her doughnuts, all the while smiling and laughing through the whole photo shoot. She also had fun pushing over the cake pedestal with the doughnuts toppling over. I think it also had to do with the fact that she is older and a bit more used to sweet things, unlike one-year-old babies. Whatever the reason, I’m happy that I was able to get lots of nice smiles from her.
