Selecting Baby Shower Cakes

Aug 17, 2007
Baby shower cakes are a great way to end a joyous party. These cakes can be designed to match the overall theme of the party.

When shopping around for shower cakes, it is a good idea to ask the new mother what type of cake flavor she would prefer. These can be made from virtually any cake flavor and icing for the enjoyment of the celebrant and the other party guests. These cakes can also add to the ambiance as there is no end to the creativity and design of these lovable treats. Not only that, they can make an ideal centerpiece at the food table of the party.

Baby shower cakes are sometimes referred to as diaper cakes. Diaper cakes are those that consist of different baby items. They may be a real cake decorated with diapers and assorted baby items. Or they may also be made of real diapers that are arranged like a layered cake. Diaper cakes are typically wrapped in cellophane and tied with adorable ribbons for a nice finished look. Like the scrumptious shower cakes, they make for interesting conversation during the party.

Homemade baby shower cakes

The process of making shower cakes is the same as making any other type. However creating those that are homemade requires some creativity and baking ability to arrange one for a shower. Individuals who are adept in cake decorating and are gifted bakers may do well in creating them for their friends. The celebrant and guests will surely appreciate the effort that went into the creation of the homemade cake for the shower.

There are a number of helpful baking items that can be used to create homemade baby shower cakes. Many baking supply stores offer a wide variety of special baking pans with many different designs. Popular cartoon characters on special baking pans also make great cakes.

Store bought baby shower cakes

But those who are not skilled in baking need not worry. There are numerous specialty bakeshops that create exceptional baby shower cakes. Many specialty bakeshops can also customize them to match the theme of the party.

It is important to get shower cakes from a quality bakeshop that specializes in designer cakes. This will ensure that they are fresh, good tasting and aesthetically appealing. It is best to shop for them in advance in order to get the just right one for the shower. It is also important to shop early as most of the best specialty bakeshops offering baby shower cakes are also the busiest in town.
