Liliana turned one and her mom, Laura wanted to do a smash cake session. This is a messy proposition always. I bought a new wood flooring board from the hardware store and made a little set with balloons and a banner. Laura brough a darling cake with decor like Liliana’s tutu dress. She was quite dainty about sampling the icing but then decided to really get her hands in it. We all had pink gooey icing on our clothes at the end. The wood floor could be washed off afterwards which worked better than a thin piece of clear plastic over a backdrop.
