We often get asked "what should I use for a floor for a cake smash session?" Vinyl is very popular for cake smashes because the material can be wiped clean with a damp cloth. You do have to be careful though, the oils and dye in the frosting can stain the backdrop, especially if it's a lighter color backdrop. Canvas and poly paper cannot be wiped clean, so customers often think those materials are not an option as a photo backdrop floor. So what material can you use?
To prevent the floor from getting damaged, we recommend using any backdrop material of your choice and putting a clear acrylic sheet over it. It can be found at most hardware stores and will protect the floor from staining or getting wet.
Acrylic makes these messy sessions a lot easier. When the cake smash fun it over, simply wipe up the frosting with a baby wipe or a damp cloth with soap. You'll never have to worry about your photo backdrop floor getting ruined again!
