Jude's Beatles Cake Smash

My son Jude turned one last week and I want to share the Beatles themed cake smash setup my husband and I put together for him.

Neither of us had done a cake smash photo shoot before so I looked at a lot of cake smash photos to see what I liked and didn't like. After doing some research I realized I really liked the cake smash photos that had a reflection on the floor! To get the reflection, you just put down a sheet of plexiglass on the floor. And for the backdrop, we bought an inexpensive backdrop stand and a roll of seamless paper.

Once we had the paper hung, we layered paper fans and Beatles records to create a fun Beatles birthday cake smash background for our babe.

You definitely need at least 2 people to get good cake cake smash photos. One person to take the photos and another person to jump around and get the baby to look at the camera because they just want to look down at the colorful yummy cake you put in front of them! 

I also recommend taking some video of the shoot. We got a few minutes on video and it's adorable!!! And another tip, have a bath ready to go because your babe will be covered in cake!!!!

I can't believe our Jude is ONE! I'll be sharing photos from his Beatles party soon!

Pineapple Doughnuts

I took these store bought doughnuts and turned them into pineapple doughnuts!
I made icing with confectioners sugar and pineapple juice.
I dyed the icing yellow.
I dipped the doughnuts in the icing and placed them back on the wire racks so the excess could drip off.

Then I took some white icing and made lines that crisscross.

Party Like A Pineapple Donut Toppers can be found in the

DIY Gold Animal Balloons

A few months ago I shared an image of these gold safari balloon animals that I made for a shower. I was flooded with messages asking how I made them. I figured I do a quick blog post to help others who want these pretty animals for their shower.

Using gold animals for shower decor is pretty popular right now. When I was planning my event, I was looking for simple gold mylar safari animal balloons. They didn't exist. Then I saw these inflatable zoo animals at Oriental Trading and thought a coat of metallic gold spray paint would make them exactly what I was looking for!

All I did was spray paint them, and they were perfect!

Peter Rabbit Garden Cake

I put this cake together for Easter and thought I'd share it since I know Beatrix Potter and Peter Rabbit themed baby showers are very popular right now!

I didn't bake the cake... I just decorated it. I took a Chocolate Malt Layer Cake purchased from MILK BAR and decorated it with a fondant Peter Rabbit and royal icing veggies.
