Cake smashes are for all ages. 13 is a big milestone. Adolescence is a transitional stage of physical and psychological development that generally occurs during the period from puberty to legal adulthood. Adolescence is usually associated with the teenage years, but its physical, psychological or cultural expressions may begin earlier and end later. So when my 13 year old wanted a cake smash I was all about it. It is hard raising teenagers these days so it's really nice to have some silly good clean fun.
