Upcoming Smash Cake Dates:

COVID-19 UPDATE:  We are so excited to have you join us for Smash Cake Mini Sessions.  We are also carefully watching the Stay at Home Order and CDC guidelines for the legality and safety of running our business.  At this point we believe June Smash Cakes will go forward.  So, we are leaving them up to accommodate those that have been rescheduled for April and May.  We are also taking some limited bookings as they are available.  Click on the link to book your slot.  Future months are still up in the air.  So, we are freezing sales for July dates+ while we monitor the situation and make appropriate decisions.  Please feel free to email us at to be notified of the release of future dates.

In the event that we are unable to hold sessions for any given date, the session fee will become a credit towards future sessions.  Unfortunately, we are unable to issue refunds.

Alternatives- We are more than happy to discuss doing an outdoor Smash Cake Session with you.  Please email us to discuss the details.
