TODAY is Baby Boy’s birthday! CRAZY, huh? I can’t believe it’s already been a year! And such a fast year. It seriously seems like it’s only been a few months! (thank you SO much Chelsea Peterson Photography for the AMAZING photoshoot! This is the BEST smash cake session EVER!)
This morning we had Baby Boy’s birthday party, which I’ll share next week! It was super fun and a total success and thank you to the sweet friends who were able to make it!
For the cake smash I made a 6 inch version of my sprinkles cake, but instead of covering it completely I let it taper off towards to top to bring the focus to the #1 topper!
He went RIGHT for the topper! What is it about kids and fondant? I used a number 1 cookie cutter on fondant, painted it with vodka (clear vanilla works too) and covered it with sprinkles and let it dry overnight!
He wasn’t so sure about it after he took that first bite… I love this face! And check out these amazing eyes! My boy has AMAZING eyes!
But he went back for more!!! Precious precious little boy! I showed up at my sisters house and had forgotten his jeans! I grabbed three pairs before leaving the house and I couldn’t find a single one! So we borrowed a pair from my niece and rolled them up! It worked out really cute actually!
He enjoyed the number 1 so much I actually ended up taking it away so we could get on with the MAIN event! CAKE! He was a great cake smash participant! Hesitant at first so we got a ton of pictures of each stage!
Just grabbing and playing with the corner! images of sweet fingers playing with the fondant… And finally trying it for the first time!
These pictures are my favorite… he’s gotten into the cake a bit more… playing with his fingers…
The adorable smashing it into his face (check out those finger all over his face!) seriously the perfect picture! I love this one!
And back for more… I love those chubby fingers, fat toes, double chins, everything about this is adorable. PURE adorable!
I actually had to step in and get in the cake more he was going so slow! luckily my sweet nieces were there with us so we just broke each of them off a piece while we continued with pictures!
At one point he was done… he just wanted mom snuggles. Good think I wore grubbies that day, I ended up getting pretty dirty myself! He’s about to cry in this second picture, that’s his ‘unsure” face.
He actually didn’t love the cake as much as he enjoyed feeling the cake and frosting between his fingers! I never would have done this, even as a child I hated getting dirty!
Could these toes have any more cake in them?
At this point he was DONE, I kept putting the cake on his lap and he just was DONE so he just pushed it RIGHT off… Done, plate empty!
I kind of expected a bit more of a mess at the end! Esp with buttercream, it’s SO greasy, but he actually stayed relatively clean-ish… We put him straight into the bath and with that it was over!
The remains of the day…
My sweet baby is one and while I’m so excited he’s growing and changing and hitting so many milestones (he’s calling me ma or mama now!), but it went too fast. It always does. His birthday is over and I’m sitting here at my computer, the high from the day is over. Everyone is in bed, I’ve cleaned up from the party and I’m in tears. My baby is one.
If you want to learn how I frost all these buttercream cakes I’m now teaching two online classes with more on the way! Anything you really want to learn?
