Super DIY Cake Smash shoot (under $15 !)

Myla Rae turns 1 tomorrow ! :)

We are not having a party... because... she's too young to know what's going on or even remember this day. Plus she doesn't have like friends to invite. A couple of my friends have similar aged baby girls.. and that's it! Her party would be filled with older kids, and adults. On top of that, I remember my friends inviting me to their kids parties a lot in the past.. and I HATED it. Like such a waste of my time, attending some kid's party. Bahaha...

But to commemorate this milestone, I did a Cake Smash shoot for her at home... so she would have photos to look back on.

Here's how I did everything for $15. (seriously $15 out of my pocket lol)... and lots of fun.

Things I used:
CAKE (spent $10.70)
I bought a $2 pandan chiffon cake.
A $5 tub of vanilla frosting from Cold Storage.
A $1.20 bottle of red food colouring
$2 Icing tool from Daiso
Number 1 Candle I got from Carousell at 50cents.

Just a a few tiny drops of colouring in each bowl to get diff shades.

It's surprisingly easy to pipe on icing. Anyway, it's a cake smash, so messy icing also ok.
Outfit (Spent $4)
At tutu dress from China (I bought online 2 months ago and it only arrived a few days before the shoot!! Phew! I did have a back up plan of just wearing a dress she already had in her wardrobe, but thankfully, the tutu arrived in time).

Backdrop (Spent $0)
I used her Parklon mat, the back had a zigzag design which I thought was kind of fun looking. But my second option was just to use a white bed sheet. If you use bedsheet as backdrop, remember to iron the creases out, drumple crumple wont be nice! I don't have any stands, so I just used my clothes drying rack to clip the backdrop up.

Photography (Spent $0)
I used my iPhone camera. And edited using an app called Beauty Plus cos I already had it in my phone, you can use whatever app you are used to using.

Here's a few of my favourite shots!

Headband is cute but she would not keep it on! Argh!
Live to eat.. lol


Happy 1st Birthday Myla Rae  xxxxx


    Awww she's turning 1! Wishing you all the best things in life baby Myla.. stay happy and healthy ~ xx
