Khaleeli's 1st birthday smash cake DIY photoshoot

So Khaleeli actually turned a year old last Friday, 21st August 2015.

I just could not find any other non-cliched phrase, so yeah, time.really.flies.darn.fast!

When I was giving birth to him I swear that it would be my last,  I even made it very clear to my husband. Hahah. Now I find myself missing his baby days (except the confinement and helplessness part. How I wish that babies are really sent by storks. Lol).

Anyway, when Bella turned 1, I actually threw her a big party. It was all balloons and colours, and I really enjoyed every part of it.

For Khaleeli, I did not threw a party of the same scale, but we still had something planned especially for him....

A DIY smash cake photoshoot, at the comfort of our very own cosy home! Yeay!


It was quite a last minute idea actually, but I am very happy that his abah is awesome enough to help me prepare and take photos of him. Thanks bubu :*


I made a sloppy chocolate cake, frosted with some whipped cream frosting and it was smash-able and tasty enough for him. Not bad for a beginner baker like me haha. Seriously proud of myself. LOL.



We used whatever we have for the props and background, I was glad that we actually had many things to make use of (obviously I hoard many cute stuff meheheh).

I made those little flag banners on the cake out of my washi tape collection too.

So all in all I would say the only money I had to use was for the cake ingredients.

I shall be writing again with some tips on how to make your own DIY smash cake session. I hope that it could help you get started if you are planning one for your bub soon.

Meanwhile, enjoy the photos! :)



P/S : Thank you very much for all the warm birthday wishes via FB and Instagram. Really really appreciate it. Hugs!

Happy birthday Mister Khaleeli! That cake looks fantastic. Look forward to getting the recipe and tips from you. Might make a potentially fun sensory activity for my kids to get messy with their food. Though I might let them do it outside.
