An Unusual But Very Useful Baby Shower Cake

Aug 15, 2008
Perhaps you thought that baby shower cakes were simply a delicious dessert served at the party... Well, that's undoubtedly one kind of cake. However there is another kind of baby shower cake which is filled with all sorts of handy gifts for the about-to-be mom. One of the most popular choices in this area is a gift which really does look like a multi-tiered wedding cake. However rather than being made from flour, eggs and sugar, it is built from the one thing a new mother can never have too many of - diapers.

These decorative and ingenious baby shower cakes make for the perfect gift for the occasion. Everyone thinks of giving diapers to the expectant mom and she will certainly use them. However giving diapers in this form turns a needed but ordinary gift into an occasion for laughter for the guests and the guest of honor.

Piled high one on top of another and covered with decorative items that really do make it just look like the genuine article, these diaper cakes are practical and fun and the guest of honor can peel them off one at a time as required. Like eating a wedding cake that can last for days or even weeks, the gift provides its own storage bin.

The same idea has been used successfully for many other baby shower gifts. The false wedding cake can be filled with any type of toys for the baby, gifts for the mother-to-be and lots more.

It is not only diapers, after all, that the happy couple will shortly. Baby oil, baby powder, lotion, ointment and many similar hygiene products are all common items for the nursery. At roughly 32 inches high, you'll find these cakes hold a lot of these necessities. A baby cap, terry cloth towels and several other items of clothing are all part of the package too.

Even the somewhat smaller two-tiered baby shower cakes offer dozens of valuable gifts and provides a great decoration as a centerpiece for the baby shower table. Just peel off the outer layers and enjoy the teething ring, rattle, pacifier and more that will assuredly get used. Open it up and find a brush and comb, a manicure set, socks and many other presents which are equally useful.

A number of baby shower cakes may contain only decorative items, but these too will be highly appreciated by the mother-to-be. Silk roses and ceramic baby blocks and more set on a scalloped silver platter make this a gift that won't be put away the closet after the party. You'll find the blocks decorating the shelf in the baby's room and the silk roses displayed on the mantle, while the silver platter is used to liven up the dining table on future special occasions.

Take a look at the full range of baby shower cakes on offer today and amaze yourself with the number of creative options.

And, don't forget of course to order the real thing for the baby shower while you're at it.
