Aug 17, 2007
Planning a baby shower for a friend and have to decide what todo about the baby shower cake? While there are tons of ideas on the internet and you can probably think of a lot of different cakes to make on your own. However, you will first have to decide what type of baby shower cake you want. This will depend on the amount of time, skills and creativity you have. Once you have chosen the type of cake that you want to go with you can think about the decoration for the cake.

Since a baby shower cake is really no different from a regular cake used for any special event your options are pretty much the same. The main difference between an everyday cake and a baby shower cake is in the decorating.

Store Bought Baby Shower Cake
This of course is a great way to go if you have extra money and no extra time. You simply go to your local bakery or even supermarket and have a cake made to order. This of course is the most expensive option yet the quickest and easiest for the host.

Homemade Baby Shower Cake
Another option if you have time and the inclination is to make your own homemade baby shower cake. This can be a lot of fun for the host and also the guest of honor. Having something specially made for you is a real honor and a treat for the guests. A homemade baby shower cake can also be used as a table centerpiece to really show off the artwork and talent of the baker. If you are planning on making your own baby shower cake you should make sure that you have enough time and have planned ahead so you will not feel rushed.

Diaper Cake
Diaper cakes are rising in popularity at baby shower and have really caught on big. Part of their popularity is they can serve as a decoration centerpiece, and as a big gift for the mother to be. You might think to yourself wait a minute a cake will be eaten how is this a gift? Well, this is typically true except a diaper cake is made out of diapers. This in fact is not a cake at all but it is made to look like one. A diaper cake is essentially made up of a group of diaper all stacked together and then decorated to look like a real cake. Gifts for the baby can then be stuffed inside the diaper cake and given to the mother to be. This can be a real focal piece for the party and add a lot of decoration quickly to the event. You can either make this yourself or have one made easily.

The biggest decision that you need to make is how much time versus how much money to you have to spend. If you have more time then money then you will want to make the cake on your own. However if you have money and absolutely no time left at the end of the day then make it easy and pay someone to make the cake for you.
