Every party has to have a cake, especially baby showers. While the celebration in itself is pretty fulfilling, a unique cake will make the mother’s special day truly memorable. Added to this, baby showers are a great way to make the mom-to-be feel loved and appreciated. It’s best to go overboard with the decorations and sweets, and leave no stone unturned to have the perfect baby shower cake for her. If you are lost for ideas and wondering about what could make for a pretty baby shower cake, here are some suggestions for you.
To-be moms are prone to have ever-changing preferences and cravings for funky flavours. If you want to go all in with your baby shower cake, consider making a gorgeous cupcake assortment or cupcake pull apart cake. This way, you could have them in several different flavours and bespoke decorations. Surprise the mom with indulgent flavours, sprinkles and miniature fondant characters for decorations and leave her spoilt for choice.
Teddy bears bring a warm, fuzzy feeling to the table and are the perfect opportunity for a chocolate overload. You can have one large piece with all the edible accessories or you can have smaller ones in different flavours.
This one is mainly for moms who aren’t keen on chocolate or other traditional flavours. A simple vanilla cake or a fruit-flavoured cake with fresh fruit topping is delectable and pretty. Even with chocolate cake, top it with fresh strawberries, raspberries, oranges and other fruits for a magical burst of flavour.
All moms have specific foods that they love bingeing on during their pregnancy. While some complementing flavours can be added to the cake, some might not. These favourite foods can be recreated using fondant and cake batter, in a way that they don’t look like cakes. While this is a seemingly unconventional route, the mom-to-be will definitely like this baby shower surprise.
Moms-to-be, despite being uncomfortable due to their pregnancy symptoms, are still full of hopes and dreams for the future. Consider a baby shower photo cake that features one of your pregnancy photo shoot pictures or a picture of your family on it. A lovely way to indulge the joys of motherhood isn’t it?
A fun baby shower cake idea revolves around some interesting wordplay - a bee-themed cake is very popular among a mom-to-be (or ‘mom-to bee’)! You can either get an actual bee-shaped cake or get a normal cake in black-and-yellow, the colours of bees. Cakes like these are gender neutral and are popular in India, where the sex of the child is not known until birth.
For those who like going traditional, cakes with a half-blue/half-pink design are also much-loved for baby showers. You could either opt for frosting in the two colours or add a fun twist with pink and blue cupcakes, pink and blue baby shoes in fondant, pink and blue teddy bears or toppers with words like “he or she?”. One cool idea can also be to write fun rhymes or poems on the cake to commemorate the special day.
Moms-to-be deserve to be pampered to build the excitement and calm the nerves that getting close to the due date brings. A baby shower is your chance to do just that and make sure there is enough for her and everyone else involved too. No matter how the day turns out, a thoughtful cake will always make it better. You can pick from recreations of toys, simple cakes decked with flowers, fruit-based cakes or a bunch of cupcakes and they will all do the job well.
