Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs) About Cake Smash Photoshoot in Singapore
To start, we’ve compiled a list of frequently asked questions to provide you with valuable information regarding cake smash photoshoot for a memorable and meaningful studio family photoshoot experience with White Room Studio! View our Cake Smash Photoshoot Gallery here.
1) What can I expect from a Cake Smash photoshoot at White Room Studio?
Experience a 1.5 hour photoshoot with a choice of 4 different studio setting!
The cake smash photoshoot package will begin with capturing a full-filled combination of kids, family and kids, and parent-child combinations.
Let’s save the most scrumptious part for later! Cake smashing will be scheduled for the second half of the photoshoot, to allow your child to be comfortable with the setting and the photographer.

2) Can my extended family/ pet join the Cake Smash photoshoot?
Yes, of course! Everyone is welcome to join the shoot with the birthday star! At White Room Studio, family values are at the heart of what we do! Being present during the photoshoot and engaging with your child during the cake smash session creates memorable moments that you’ll cherish.
Dogs and cats are part of the family too, and often they make sweet companions for your kids.
3) What should I prepare for a Cake Smash photoshoot?
Smashing cakes could be a mess everywhere, not only for your child but for parents as well! We highly recommend preparing 2-3 outfits for a variety of family portraits and one extra outfit to change your child out of after they had a fun time with the cake!
A well-rested baby is more likely to be in a good mood and enjoy the cake smash photoshoot, to capture their genuine reactions. Cake smashing can be a novel and sometimes intimidating experience for your baby.
To help them get started and embrace the messy fun, we would advise parents to bring your baby’s favorite snacks to the photoshoot. Placing these treats on top of the cake can pique their interest and encourage them to explore the cake.
At White Room Studio, your comfort is very important to us, which is why we have created a guest lounge with a well-stocked pantry, providing you with a space to relax and unwind while you savor the snacks and drinks at your leisure.
4) Can I order a cake from an external vendor and use it for the Cake Smash photoshoot with White Room Studio?
Absolutely! We understand that some parents do have a preferred vendor or designs and we respect that!
However, if you don’t have a cake vendor in mind, White Room Studio has partnered with Caramelloz, a local artisanal bakery to bring you 8 unique custom cakes for your cake smash photoshoot, so you can get creative with the design and colour! You can even request for the birthday cakes to be made egg-less, dairy-free, or sugar-free in case of any allergies.

5) Can I opt for an outdoor Cake Smash photoshoot?
Definitely! A perfect outdoor location creates a beautiful and unforgettable backdrop, adding a charm to your baby’s first birthday photoshoot. Check out Clara and her family’s Outdoor Cake Smash photoshoot at Upper Peirce Reservoir Park!
