The cake smash has been gaining in popularity recently as a way to celebrate and document baby turning 1!
While it's fun, there are some really great alternatives to the cake smash that don't have the negatives associated with a cake smash. Suprisingly, most babies usually hate the stickyness of cake and the sugar can be an overwhelming shock to their system.
