cake designs are often inspired by the theme
of the baby shower, the tastes
of the new mom, and the season. Design incorporates a few things:
How the icing, décor and structure are combined, is what gives the cake
With my event planning, I deal mostly with
wedding cakes. There are a
variety of different wedding cake structures, but they are mostly
tiered with round, square, hexagonal or topsy turvy tiers. Baby shower
cakes can be any of these too, but in addition to those, there’s a
whole world of cake molds and additional creative “baby” designs to
consider, or dream up on your own.
Some of the hot baby shower cake designs are: baby
bunting, belly cakes, topsy
tiered round cake with pregnant mom figurine topper, ABC toy blocks,
baby bottles, baby animals, a baby's face, pea in the pod, sheet cake
with baby shower inscriptions, or baby shower gift cakes.
Before choosing the baby shower cake designs you’re interested in,
mom-to-be. Consider her style, what theme or colors has she chosen for
her new baby, or what theme have you chosen for the shower? Tie it all
together. Whatever you do, stay clear of provocative
baby shower cakes!
Baby Shower Cakes Square
baby shower cakes,
especially in cubes, are perfect for baby block cakes. Tiers can be
each other at an angle, or on the stand at an angle to create some
What a fun way to play with shapes!
fun thing to do is to add a couple round
layers to the mix.
Baby Shower Cakes When
visualize simple...they see round baby shower cakes. Why? Round is no
most common shape used. It's not until more recent years that they have
branched out into new shapes: hexagons, blocks, squares, topsy turvy,
will work in most spaces and are pretty
universal. They're pretty safe.
If she has registered for all ducky linens and accessories for her
baby, then don’t get her a cake with teddy bears all over it. If she’s
a conservative executive whose 90 year old grandmother will be at the
shower, then don’t get her a provocative cake like the one shown here.
If you’ve chosen a baby shower theme around an image of a cool and chic
mom with a belly bump, then do create a belly bump cake. If your
mom-to-be has registered at Restoration Hardware for their entire pink
and brown polka dot collection, then do a pink and brown polka dot
If you’re hosting a baby shower in a warm or humid area, say, in your
backyard in the middle of July, then stay away from cakes with
ingredients that will not withstand the heat. Read more about this on
our cake icing
page. For instance, butter
cream or cream cheese
frostings do best when refrigerated up until they’re eaten, or kept in
an air conditioned room.
