Ideas For Baby Shower Cakes
Baby shower cakes do not have to elaborate or expensive in order to be a big hit. It is nice if you can add a personal touch so the cake will be a sort of centerpiece to the party. If you have volunteered to be the hostess, you might decide to bake the cake yourself or get it from a bakery.
What Flavors Of Baby Shower Cakes Are Best?
Most people love chocolate, but some people are allergic to it. Ask the mom-to-be what her favorite type of cake is. If she is pregnant, she might be extra-sensitive to certain types of food. In any case, it is fine to have double chocolate with berry filling if that is what the bride is hungry for. But it might be a good idea to also have a plain white cake on the side for that sensitive guest who might not care for something that is too rich.
One good idea is to decorate the cake with plastic baby toys and bottles. As the hostess, you can collect these after all of the pictures are taken. You can clean the frosting off, give them a good wash, and present them as an extra gift to the guest of honor. This way she can always remember her special “cake toys.”
Traditionally, pink is for girls, blue is for boys, and yellow is for a surprise. You can use that color scheme on your baby shower cakes if you want, but if it just does not go with the flavor, you might want to save it for something else. White cake seems fine covered in blue, pink, or yellow. Somehow those colors just do not seem to go with chocolate cake. You can always save the pretty pastels for the plates and napkins.
