Su­per smash moth­ers

Cockburn Gazette - - NEWS -

SOME might say it is a waste of a per­fectly good treat, but mem­bers of a lo­cal moth­ers’ group said a cake smash pho­tog­ra­phy ses­sion held re­cently was the per­fect way to mark a mile­stone and cel­e­brate their friend­ship.

The trend, which started in the USA, typ­i­cally in­volves a young child mak­ing a mess of a cake.

The ses­sions are pho­tographed and oc­cur around the time of the child’s first birth­day.

Eleven ju­niors from mem­bers of a lo­cal moth­ers’ group had the chance on April 1 to smash their own cake.

Mother Tamara Lee Brother­ston said a moun­tain of prepa­ra­tion went into the day but it “was over in a flash”.

“We all man­aged to get the cakes to the park safely and have a quick photo be­fore the mess be­gan. There was mess ev­ery­where,” she said.

“Some sat nicely eat­ing, shov­el­ling ic­ing into their mouths; some started cry­ing and crawl­ing off af­ter mum, but it was that nat­u­ral be­hav­iour that we wanted to cap­ture.”

While held to mark a first birth­day, Ms Brother­ston said it was also a cel­e­bra­tion of the group it­self.

“We’ve all been a mas­sive part of each others’ lives, catch­ing up nearly ev­ery week for the last 11 months, cre­at­ing our own pri­vate Atwell moth­ers’ group Face­book page to stay in con­tact eas­ily,” she said.

Mem­bers of the group are from Atwell, Au­bin Grove and Wandi.
