When I was contacted by Cake Boss, I could hardly believe it. They wanted to make cakes for one of MY cake smashes. It happened to be just the perfect opportunity. Mia and her friends (read: my friends daughters) had just turned 1 all in the same month. It was perfect. Well… almost perfect. Mia took a bit of a spill just as she was going for the cake and well, as we parents know, all heck broke loose. Poor thing just could not regain her composure. As a parent, I know how hard it is to get photos of my own kids. As a photographer, you can imagine how frustrating that can be! It was a chaotic day and not quite the way I envisioned it! But hindsight is 20/20! For her next birthday, I’ll be hiring a colleague! LOL Special Thank you to Buddy Valastro, Carlo’s Bakery, and the staff and crew of CAKE BOSS. If you havent caught it already, be sure to look out for it on TLC!
