Golf Cake SmashGolf Themed Cake Smash

      This little guy came in to celebrate his first birthday with a cake smash. Daddy is a big golfer, so a golf themed cake smash was requested. This was a first, so it was fun to create a brand new set. Mom wanted a backdrop that looked like a golf course, but  had a child like quality – as if it were out of a children’s book. I decided to create my own backdrop on a roll of seamless paper. I had not used chalk pastels since I was in elementary school art class, and I definitely felt like a little kid again as I drew and smeared the chalk with my hands. And, I looked like an elementary school kids too, covered in chalk by the time I was done.

      To make the cake smash even more special, his mom made the golf ball cake! She was so worried that it didn’t turn out perfect, but I think that it makes it so much more meaningful. It was almost as if Ben did not want to destroy what his mom had worked so hard to make. He was one of the cleanest cake smashers I have ever had. He gently nibbled away at the cake remaining relatively clean and only leaving a few crumbs on the ground. But his smile and laughter showed us just how much he was enjoying himself. And I know I surely enjoyed capturing this special moment for such a sweet one year old!

      Do you have a tutorial on how you made background and how big?

      Hi Kristy,

      I don’t have a tutorial. Thank you for the idea. Next time I make a back drop I will try to take pictures as it is created.

      I used a roll of white Savage seamless paper (53″ wide). The backdrop was probably only 4 foot tall since it was just for a cake smash and no adults. I used chalk pastels to draw the golf course. They worked well because I coulod smudge them with a paper towel and layer the colors to achieve a soft look. They do tend to rub off on anything they come in contact with, even once applied to paper. You can set them with a fixative spray.

      Good luck with your project!
