Aladdin / Princess Jasmine Cake Smash
Posted on 21 Jun, 2022 by Sarah Hart
This fabulous Aladdin / Princess Jasmine cake smash was requested by a lovely client of mine who’s daughter is named Jasmin. It was the perfect theme for this gorgeous one year old. I immediately knew I had to make use of my lilac backdrop and wanted to use golds and turquoise to match the rich colours of a palace for this little princess! I really love it when I can get stuck in to a new cake smash theme!
I’ve now created quite a number of themed smashes and it’s wonderful to be able to personalise the session for the birthday boy or girl. Jasmin’s family are no strangers to my studio in Tonbridge. In fact, I first met this fun family when they booked me for big brother, Rex’s first birthday….and of course they chose a Toy Story themed cake smash to tie in with Rex the dinosaur from Toy Story.
As with all my cake smash photoshoots, we began with some simple portraits at the start of the session. Jasmin’s mummy had bought a beautiful lilac party dress for her to wear. She looked the part of a little Princess! Mummy had also warned me that Jasmin “hated people” and could quite possibly cry for the whole shoot!!! Eek, I won’t lie – I was a little nervous about how Jasmin might react at the cake smash. I’d suggested to big brother Rex, that he might like to sit in on the portrait session to “show Jasmin” that all was ok and to help get her adjusted to the flashing lights etc. But I needn’t have worried, Jasmin seemed quite at home in her Aladdin/ Princess Jasmine cake smash set up!
As always, Denise from Cakes Unlimited UK had produced her usual beautiful giant cupcake using a purple base with cream buttercream and topped with gold stars. Check out her face when Jasmin was presented with her cake!!
After I’d achieved enough images of Jasmin happily tucking in to her cake, we invited Rex to join in who had been eagerly sat beside me waiting for a taste of cake!
And then we ended the photoshoot with a little splash in the tub. I think this was Jasmin’s favourite part of the cake smash – she loved the water. And not wanting to miss out, Rex also stripped down and took a little dip in the tub too! Jasmin clearly adores her big brother and I was able to capture some lovely shots of them having fun in the water!
