Let Them Eat Cake!
Today we did a cake smash and splash session for Ashni's first birthday which will take place in a couple of weeks.
Ashni's mum only booked a week or so ago and we didn't have time to assemble the style that she wanted so she brought her own gold and white fans which looked fabulous behind Ashni who was also in gold and white.
It's quite normal, when they turn up for a cake smash, for my mini clients to have a bit of a cry and complain, as I am a strange person to them and they are in a place they have never been before. They may have, like Ashni, just been woken from their nap. Who isn't a little bit grumpy when they have to wake up? Still, Ashni soon settled into it as we did the warm up session with the O,N and E letters before bringing the cake out.
Following recent health guidelines, for some babies, this may be their first taste of cake or sugar (it's okay once in a while!) But in order for her first birthday rite of passage to go ahead, a cake it was. Ashni got stuck in straight away, picking at it in a ladylike manner and making approving noises!
We soon got smiles and though she didn't like our new bubble machine, I think Ashni enjoyed herself splashing in the tub and playing with the ducks as she soaked the stickiness away! What memories!!!
Many thanks to Totally Scrumptious for the delicious cake.
