My son just turned 1 last week. I am a photography! and we set up a mini session to do a "smash the cake" photo session. You can get these cute little mini cakes at the Superstore and they work perfect...
I will post a few pictures on my profile if you wanna look them up... or you can check them out on my website
My son loved it.. it was his first taste of cake well anything sweet for that matter....
Good luck

i only brought one cake for my sons 1st birthday, i cut off a huge chunk and put it infront of him while he was in his highchair while he was in the nuddy, he took one look at his father and i smiled his cheeky smile then went in for the smash, he had heaps of fun getting cake everywhere he even went as far as licking the plate once he was finished

My niece just had her sons first birthday...he had a smash cake and loved it!!! sometimes they need a little help..a taste and then they do fine on their own. Have your camera ready! he will love it and so will you...and the pics will be priceless!

Yep, my little girl's first birthday was a ton of fun. We stripped her down to her diaper and stuck a big slice of chocolate cake in front of her. The resulting photos were priceless. The bath afterward was also a lot of fun! :)
