I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again: You NEVER know how a child will react during a Cake Smash shoot. Some are excited (OMG there is a giant cake ALL FOR ME!), others are confused (You actually WANT me to play with my food?). I’d say Ryan fit somewhere in the middle.
Just a few weeks shy of his 2nd birthday, cutie Ryan seemed cautiously excited about the big blue cake in front of him. He slowly started to nibble it bit by bit. No big grabs for the center. No smearing of frosting for fun. Just some controlled cake eating.
What I quickly learned was that Ryan is not a fan of messy fingers. Every few minutes he would walk over to his dad with outstretched hands as if to say, “Can you help me out, Dad? Can’t you see I’ve got a situation here!” After a quick wipe down, he was back to business…at least for a few minutes. Yes, he tried his best to clean his hands himself by licking his fingers or wiping them on the paper, but the buttercream frosting was too tough of a match.
I wonder if he still has blue hands…
