Cake smash – Imogen’s first birthday

After linking up with my Sibling project post and reading everyone else’s there was one that stood out. Emily at Emily and Indiana wrote about their DIY cake smash for their sibling project. I did look into booking a cake smash photo shoot for Imogen’s first birthday. However, with Andrew out of work it wasn’t possible.

Feeling inspired by their cake smash I created a vest to match a tutu we have and baked a cake. I cheated with the cake a little and bought ready made icing. Once we had everything it was finding time to fit it in.

Before we brought out the cake we took some pictures of Imogen crawling all over the place creating havoc sitting nicely, looking at the camera, smiling!

Then the cake comes out….

It did take a while for Imogen to get a taste for the cake…

Of course she was so proud of what she was doing… creating mess. Imogen’s favourite pass time!

My favourite picture I took was the very last one, she was standing walking towards me. Licking her fingers. Not posed or planned just her!

This has to be the longest birthday celebration ever! Last post for her first birthday I promise!

Shank You Very Much Keep Calm and Carry On Linking Sunday

    1. We decided to wrap the cake up in the backdrop and bin it 🙂 And then straight in the bath!! 😀

    1. Thank you 🙂 We had so much fun and didn’t take too long either which is always a bonus 🙂

  1. Oh 1st birthday smash cake parties are so much fun. Love the DIY cake smash idea. I know of people who pay enormous amounts to have designer cakes baked – just to be smashed #globalblogging

  2. Oh I love a cake smash. It’s such a creative idea. Thank you so much for linking up with us for #kcacols and we hope to see you next time.
