Is there any other single item that embodies the spirit of party and celebration than the cake?
I do not believe so and that is why I think that the cake should be the focal point of the baby shower.
That is, of course, after the mother to be.
Are You Planning To Make The Cake Yourself?
If you plan on making the baby shower cake yourself then you may want to avoid trying to make something overly elaborate.
Keep your inventive and amazing influence regulated to the flavor of the cake. Do a lot of research, find out the favorite flavors of the special guest and make sure that every ingredient is pro-baby health.
This goes for every dish that you serve. Your friend may have been a harbor girl who loves seafood, but you won’t want to serve fish because of the warnings in regards to mercury levels and pregnant mothers. Make sure to ask her exactly what she will want and then research everything.
You Can Find Many Cake Ideas On The Internet
Google is an amazing resource for delicious cake recipes. Who wants vanilla frosting on vanilla cake when you can have Mayan chocolate cake with cocoa, cinnamon bun, butter-cream frosting?
If you are going to get the cake custom made by an artist then you can get a little more elaborate with form. Some cake artist can make a cake in just about any form you can imagine. Try to be unique. Everyone and their mother think of a cradle or a crib. Avoid creepy things like cakes that look like babies.
Consider the new trend of announcement cakes. Man parents are getting keeping the sex of their baby a secret and then revealing it with the internal color of the cake. Some people even go so far as to get the results handed to them in a sealed envelope and then giving that envelope to the cake artist so that it’s a surprise to them too. This really ups the excitement of the night.
If you can arrange it, you can get a little funny by placing the spread on a baby changing station. This will be the first and last time that any food comes in contact with this surface so you may as well get a laugh out of it while the baby changing station is clean.
