Gone are the days of balloons and a Victoria sponge. If your baby is having a birthday, there’s only one way to celebrate: with a cake smash.

The cake smash craze started in the US, and over the past few years, parents across the UK have been joining in.

A cake smash party involves a one-year-old who gets very messy with a birthday cake while a professional photographer captures the moment.

After that, there is often a bubble bath, which is also caught on camera for posterity.

A cool idea, however cake smash parties can be quite expensive, with some even costing around £800! What do you think?
