Oh my goodness… Annelyn is going to be a year old on Thursday, April 4th. Ahhh. I still can’t believe our last baby is growing so fast. I decided to do a ONE in a melon theme. For starters when would she ever turn one again, plus she LOVES watermelon. She actually ate more of it than she did of her cake during her watermelon cake smash.
My friend Kimberly gave me her cake recipe and it turned out pretty good. This was my first completely homemade cake and icing. We are pretty sure Annie has a milk allergy so I wanted to make sure I knew what was in her cake. She didn’t have a reaction so I plan to make the cupcakes/cake for her party next weekend. I did layer of green cake on the bottom, a layer of white icing, a layer of pink cake, a layer of pink icing, another layer of pink cake, pink icing in little rosette pattern, finally topped with mini chocolate chips for the “seeds”.
I painted the watermelon ONE letters last minute. Considering I am not very artistic I think they turned out pretty cute.
My friend, Sabrina, made her little romper and headband. I am in love with the little ruffles. Her watermelon moccasins came from Freshly Picked.
The poster came from Paper Me Blossom. I also ordered her invitations and photo banner from her. She was super easy to work with and did a great job.
Love her sweet little faces.
Originally I was going to have a photographer friend of mine take her photos but a few things happened and I ended up taking the photos. I’m really happy with the way her watermelon cake smash turned out really cute.
We did a cake smash with Prestyn but just realized I never actually shared the photos on here. Maybe I will one day.
Did you do a cake smash photo shoot with your kids?
