When it comes to smash cakes, we thought we'd seen it all! From a Snow White-themed photo shoot featuring an apple cake to a little guy who celebrated his first with a Philly food smash, celebrating the first big milestone in a child's life with a unique confection has never been more popular.

It was only a matter of time, then, before the Nutella smash cake made its debut.

Roslyn, New York-based maternity, newborn, and child photographer Benedetta Vallone says she always tries to offer her clients different options for a first birthday session smash cake, from yogurt to paint.

But this was the first time a family chose a Nutella "cake." And clearly, little Giuliana kinda loved it.

Vallone says that at first, Giuliana, whose parents got a custom-made dress and jar for the shoot, wasn't so sure about touching the ooey-gooey vat of hazelnut goodness.

But she told about how she loosens up her mini-clients, "We have a good time. I sing a lot of songs with them. I don't force them into it, because then it's all down the drain!"

It's clear the little birthday girl has adopted a love for Nutella, which actually, I am totally craving right now after seeing Vallone's photos! Blame it on pregnancy or just the fact that Nutella is delicious!
