Best Baby Shower Cake Ideas
Looking for cool baby shower cake designs and baby shower cake ideas, or some
"wow" factor for that party you're hosting? You’ve come
to the right place!
I love baby showers. Why? They're chick
Generations of women come together to shower the mom-to-be with gifts
and attention, and to celebrate the birth of her unborn child. An
occasional dad also likes to join in on the fun, but ultimately, it is,
and will always be a chick fest.
As an event planner, I’ve been lucky to host and
plan many, many baby
showers. I’ve even been the guest of honor at them, just a few times.
I’ve seen small affairs in someone’s living room, to large Champagne
Brunches at the Ritz Carlton. One thing that always rings true, is that
cakes for baby showers, cute cupcakes, or baby shower cake recipes are
centerpiece of this festive party. Whether you bake yourself or hire a
professional baker, there are endless and
fun possibilities for baby shower cake designs and decorations.
Choosing a Baby Shower Cake
Before choosing what style
of cake you’re interested in, consider the
mom-to-be. What is her style? What theme or colors has she chosen for
her new baby? What theme have you chosen for the shower? Tie it all
together. Cakes for baby showers are traditionally cute, with pastel
pictures of babies, baby blocks, ducks, teddy bears, you get the idea.
More modern cakes are of mom’s bellies, or even borderline provocative
styles. My advice always is, match the style to your mom-to-be. Also
remember that you’ll be in close quarters with the mom-to-be’s
relatives, who may be older and conservative.

desserts are usually of

more doable, are baby

wrappers yet, you may be sold on this option when you
absolutely adorable. You probably have several cookie cutters
in your cupboard to create a perfect set of cut
out cookies with your favorite sugar
cookie icing. Serve
them for dessert, or send them home as favors, it’s all up to you.
the Baby Shower Cake Recipe
are a few things to consider when choosing the type of cake. What
is the mom-to-be’s favorite, or what does she dislike? Does she
even like cake? What time of year is it? Will the cake be outdoors in
the heat? How many people will it need to feed? What is the budget?

Baby Shower Diaper Cakes, do I have to?
yes, diaper baby cakes, also made of onesies, washcloths and more.
These are not that easy to make. If you’ve done a bunch and you’ve got
it down, great. If you’ve never done one and aren’t sure if you want to
