Rainbow Smash Cake

 

 

 

I worked with the amazing Cici from Bamboo Shoots on this cake smash photo shoot.  Really pleased with how it turned out – always a bonus when the little subject is super cute! It was Luca’s first or second time eating cake, so he was a little unsure about the whole experience but we managed to capture a few giggles. 

 

I made a 6 layer rainbow cake. The sponge is a regular butter cake. By omitting the egg yolks in the recipe, brighter colours can be achieved. Buttercream ruffles were used to decorate the whole cake and a handmade fondant rainbow went on top. Here’s a snippet of the piping technique on instagram.
