Children’s birthdays are special occasions that call for celebration with family and friends, so I researched for the best Birthday Cakes in Los Angeles for your child’s special day! One of the most important parts of any birthday party is the cake, which serves as the centerpiece of the event. While there are many bakeries in Los Angeles that offer standard birthday cakes, personalized cakes are becoming increasingly popular, especially when it comes to being the feature at a Birthday party. 

I always like to choose a theme for my daughter’s birthday parties, usually something that she’s really into at the time, then I plan the decoration and color palette around that, starting with the cake.  She loves nothing more than singing Happy Birthday, especially when everyone is singing for her and then she gets to blow out all of the candles!  As a photographer, the cake table also gives me a nice feature to photograph and looks beautiful when building her a birthday photo album to look back on after the party.

If it’s coming up to your child’s very 1st Birthday, be sure to check out my Cake Smash Photoshoots! These are such a fun event to mark that special occasion.  We choose a theme or a simple setup and I take some beautiful birthday images, and then onto the cake smash, which is always fun!  We can even end with Splash time to clean up.  These sessions are always so special as babies explore cake for usually the first time.  Some love the cake and dive head first in, some are a little unsure, but the images always tell that story and speak for themselves!  Many clients love to use these images to decorate their son or daughter’s 1st Birthday party a few weeks later, giving that extra special personal touch.
