Bewildered

Hi folks.........just been scrolling down my facebook page and I came across a post asking where the best place is to buy a cake for a cake smash photo...........well I had never heard of this so I scrolled on, it would seem its the latest thing to do..........you buy a gooey cake and let the kids smash it getting covered in cream icing, jam, whatever then you take a pic of them........apparently its great fun for the kids and you get amazing photos and memories...........I hope it isn't just me but somehow this doesn't sit easily on my shoulders..........buying or making a cake to destroy seems awfully wasteful to me........and I'm not sure what message this sends out to the kids...........if they really feel a compulsive need to get messed up for a photo maybe flour and water would suffice.......but I'm sure it will soon be about who had the biggest messiest cake......... but Hey Ho !!! maybe I was born of the wrong generation..........

    I quite agree, it seems a complete waste of good food and what an example to teach children that it is perfectly acceptable to smash up food. Wouldn’t they prefer to eat it? I know what I would choose…….
