Woot! January 2020 and we managed to get all of the 2020 Smash Cakes up on he website! Now you can plan for your Little Cake Smasher’s photos well in advance!

We are incredibly excited that we have been doing these mini sessions for over 5 years! Creating fun birthday photos for so many cuties has been one of our greatest pleasures.

VISIT OUR BIRTHDAY AND SMASH CAKE PAGE FOR DATES, INFO, AND TO BOOK YOUR SESSION.

OTHER OPTIONS?
If the dates for the mini session events do not work,  you want to include family photos, or you want to bring in more/different decorations than what our mini session provides,  you would book a Full Session, or Weekday Flex Mini, and add a smash cake to it.    

Children and Family + Smash Cake Session– In Studio

If you have your Children and Family + Smash Cake Session in the Edgewater studio and want us to order the cake, it would just be an additional $45 on top of the session fee. Usually, we take the last 30 minutes of the full session and do the cake.  For decorations,  you would just fill out a simple survey to choose your banner, balloons, and cake options.


Weekday Flex Mini + Smash Cake– In Studio
We are testing a weekday flex mini session in our Edgewater studio. The Flex mini allows families to individually book mini sessions in the studio, Monday-Fridays 30 min for $275.  This would not include a cake.   The cake would be an additional $45.

MINI SESSION EVENT vs FLEX MINIS: The pricing structure for a mini session day is different than an individually booked mini session.  Booking on a pre-established designated mini session event is always a more economical option than individual booking.


NOTE ABOUT CAKE FEE:  The cake fee includes the cost of the cake, delivery fee, and a fee for TK Staff to be present for the cake delivery.  For Smash Cake Mini Session Events, the bakery has given us bulk pricing, and delivery costs are divided among all of the booked sessions.

After over 5 years of monthly Smash Cake Mini Sessions, we kind of think we are cake connoisseur. For the majority of those 5 years we have used Westtown Bakery and Diner for our Smash Cakes. Our top 5 reasons we love Westtown Cakes

  1. VEGAN and They work with most allergies- The biggest concern as Children Photographers is health and safety. When it comes to a babe’s first cake experience, we understand that they may be coming in with allergies or the potential of having a bad reaction. Working with a bakery who gets that was top of our list. They have worked with us on 99% of our special allergy requests. Most importantly, their standard cake is Vegan, which takes out a large number of our concerns for reactions!
  2. TASTE- We have often heard vegan cakes noted as “great for a vegan cake!” Westtown Bakery cakes are the best cakes we have tasted. PERIOD. No disclaimer needed. Our clients, photographers, and even our own kids are obsessed with Westtown Bakery’s cakes. Parents have been seen trying to scrap together remnants of an imploded cake in order to take them home!
  3. CUSTOMER SERVICE- Westtown Bakery has amazing communication and is always responsive and collaborative. Coordinating 20+ cakes every month is no small task and they make it easy and fun to work with them!
  4. DESIGNS- We have worked with them to get the perfect Smash Cake down. The times that we have asked for something out of the box, they have delivered beyond what we were looking for.
  5. STRONG MISSION- Westtown Bakery aims to use locally sourced and sustainable ingredients and products. Supporting businesses that support our community is incredibly important to us.

Want a Westtown Bakery Cake for your next in-studio session? Just ask us how to have one delivered straight to our studio. It is a piece of cake.
