Ethan's cake smash

My blogger friend Charlotte at Write Like No-one's Watching shared a fun idea when her little boy William turned one and it's something I've kept at the back of my mind ever since.

The idea is a bit messy but oodles of fun. You take one baby, one cake and see what happens. Oh yes!

We did a cake smash with Ethan at the weekend, just before his birthday, and the photos we captured are just wonderful. We followed Charlotte's tips and found it was so easy to do and thanks to the disposable tablecloth, cleaning up after was a doddle. In fact, the trickiest part we found was prising the cake out of Ethan's hands - even in the bath!

Here's what happens when you let a nearly one year old loose on a big birthday cake...



  1. Omg, that looks amazing!! I'll defo be readin the link for tips. Ethan looks like butter wouldn't melt but he can surely make a mess, hehe! Did he enjoy it? Xxx

  2. He did! He actually took it quite seriously, picking at small crumbs, so we had to give him a helping hand! The cake wasn't too sticky so he could have been messier but he enjoyed it and we had to take the cake from his hands, even in the bath!
