Cake smash substitution ideas??

My boy is 1 in a few days 🤯 Any ideas on cake substitutions for a cake smash photo session? He’s not allergic to anything, just don’t want to introduce artificial sugars yet.

    I second the smash fruit. Or something like a piece of pie made from just cooked fruit. I actually didn’t do the smash cake thing but I did let her eat some refined sugars (frosted cake) but she wasn’t that into it anyway.

    I was the same way! But I thought Ok fine just this one time. Anddddd he hated it, cried, and didn’t even touch let alone eat the cake lol I tried to put some in his mouth and he spit it out, I think he’s just not used to food that sweet

    Bake your own 'cake'. That's what we did and we pureed fruit for the sugar portion. Worked of us

    I gave her yogurt and blueberries which made a wonderful mess and everyone else had cake

    We made a banana bread cake with apple sauce and a little maple syrup in substitution of sugar. Maybe that would be a good alternative?

    We made a small cake using banana as the sweetener and used blueberries with Yogurt as frosting. None of it had added sugars. She loved it!
