Baby Shower Cakes

Baby Shower Cakes

A baby shower is a milestone event in the lives of expectant parents, and one of the centerpieces of the event is the Baby Shower Cake.
Baby shower cakes are made to celebrate both the mom and the future, or newly delivered, little life, so they should be lovely to look, good to eat and should match the baby shower’s theme.

Baby Shower Cakes are spectacular- some are fancier than the others, but all Baby Shower cakes are cakes that makes you WOW.

In this post I’m presenting a series of baby shower cakes pictures, to get you inspired and help you find a cake to suit your party’s theme.

Having a predefined theme to the baby’s shower is most important.
A baby shower is an opportunity to pamper the exhausted mother-to-be.
If planned well, it will distract her from third trimester discomforts, and good planning is the different between a doll evening to a night to remember!
After facing some failures with planning and hosting a baby shower, I used a book that became my number one guide for planning a baby shower.
It takes you through the teeth-grinding first steps of planning your budget, learn how to come up with funds and find helpful co-hosts – while holding onto your serenity and even having fun!

You are welcome to use the baby shower NUMBER ONE planning guide; you are more than welcome to enjoy my Baby Shower Cakes Gallery.

    Hi Kayla
    I’m located online :-)
    I don’t have a shop where I offer my cakes.
    I made most of the cakes for friends and family, a few of the cakes presented were prepared by friends, but the ente thing is just a hobby.
    This blog is meant to show that you don’t have to be a professional to make great looking baby shower cakes,you just have to give it a try and you’ll be surprised with the results.
    When you make your own baby shower cakes I’ll be more than happy to present them on my blog.

    Happy Cooking :-)

    i am planning on making a baby shower cake for my best friend i wanted to know if there was anyway you could help me out by telling me how you made the baby shower block cake or even the baking pans that you used to make them that size. I greatly appreciate your time and look foward to hearing from you.

    Are the characters, like the monkey, made with the same fondant recipe as well? I’ve heard that this should be a 60-40 Fondant/Gumpaste mix, but yours look beautiful, so let me know if this is just fondant and I”ll give it a try. I’m trying to make a Sock Monkey cake topper for my baby’s first birthday.

    A great idea for future recipes this. Thank you for sharing it. Have you noticed how so many people appear to be cooking again? I wonder if the lack of funds due to the current climate has something to do with it and we all appear to be cooking again! its great!

    Wow, this is an amazing post; I have always enjoyed decorating cakes, and will be hosting my sister’s baby shower next month and have always wanted to try fondant. This is going to make it all possible….Thanks

    Love all the baby shower cakes, especially the wild animal ones. I made a 4 tier diaper cake for my daughter-in-laws baby shower.

    Thanks for sharing

    Wow! What a lot of effort you put into your cakes!

    I’ve organized a few baby showers in my time, and when it comes to advanced baking, I’m afraid I get straight on the phone and order my cake from a bakery or store! Nothing I’ve ever bought, though, looks as good as yours.

    I’m not too bad at diaper cakes, though, so I guess I just have to learn to apply my skills.

    You should maybe think about doing this for a living.

    Regards – Keira
