Say goodbye to the old boring round cakes of yesterday, and welcome in today's creative cakes! A baby shower just isn't a baby shower without a theme either! So pick a cake that will literally be the icing on the finishing touches of the perfect baby shower! Here are a few ideas we found that can easily be created in home, or by a professional!
#1 - Flower Power
If your baby shower is set in the spring time, this is the perfect cake to go with a flowery and whimsical theme! All colors can be used, so you won't be limited to just a few. This makes it easier to plan and find the perfect accessories to go along with it! Decorate each table with bright fresh flowers and dress in a bright floral flowy dress! Encourage your guests to also wear flowers on their clothing! Sparkling fruit punch is a must as well! Think bright, clean, and fun!
# 2 - The Baby Carriage
This cake would go well with any baby shower, whether it be for a boy or a girl! This cake could easily be recreated out of a cookie cake and add chocolate covered donuts for the wheels. It's always nice, whenever possible, to use a variety of pastries within your cake so that your guests can pick and choose which part is their favorite! A sure fire way to please everyone!
#3 - The Stork
This cake would be a great idea for a gender reveal party, as well as any baby shower! For the gender reveal party especially, have the cake dyed insided to be either blue or pink, and when you cut into it for the first time--the color tells everyone the gender! Combine this with a game for your gender reveal, and take "bets" from your guests as to whether you are having a boy or girl.
# 4 - The Diaper Cake
This cake is best when it's made out of chocolate! :) Just for that extra laugh! Change the colors to either match your baby's gender, or to match your party! This cake can also be made easily at home. Just cut the shape and get creative with the icing. The safety pin is made out of licorice and gummies, and the dots are sprinkles that can be purchased at any grocery store.
# 5 - The Teddy Bear
How darling is this bear?! AND the great thing about this one is, it can also easily be made from home! The middle and head are made using small and medium sized round baking pans, and the arms and ears are made from cutting a round medium sized baking pan into shapes. Let it cool, then piece it together and apply the icing. Add any sort of accessories you want! Perfect cake, and you don't have to spend a fortune!
# 6 - Birth Announcement
Very traditional cake, but also super cute AND can be made very easily in your own home! This cake is also a great one to have at a gender reveal party, or even a coming home get together!
# 7 - Shake, Rattle and Roll
What a great cake to have at your baby shower! The colors can be changed to match accordingly! This would also be a great idea to have as a smaller secondary cake, if you wanted to offer more than one flavor. Maybe have a giant baby carriage cake made of of cookie dough (see #2) and then a smaller cake like #6 made out of vanilla, and this one made out of strawberry! It's always a good thing to give your guests a variety and it makes for super cute table decorations!
