Oh, baby, baby!
I’m getting to that age where everyone around me is multiplying – tiny humans seem to be sprouting up on everybody’s Facebook profiles. Except mine. Want to see my maternal instincts come out? Try to take away my plate at a restaurant before I’m finished.
The fact is that I can throw one amazing baby shower. I have had zero human babies, but I have carried many a food baby in my day. Cake is a thing that I understand. It’s sweet. It’s cute. And making it yourself gives you a sense of pride. Wait. Maybe I do understand babies?
Here’s a list of 20 baby shower cakes that’ll bring the house down.
The baby’s gender isn’t the only surprise when this cake is cut. Reveal to your family and friends whether you’re expecting a boy or a girl with a fun candy surprise.
This is for that baby shower that might get a little nutty… nutty… get it?
Not ready to reveal the gender of your baby, but still want to get into the blue/pink fun of it all? We have your solution. You really can have it all, sweet Tablespooner.
This cake is for a perfect for a prince and his imminent rain/reign. Bonus points if that prince is born in Minnesota.
This cake is as colorful as the comments during the ninth hour of labor, but will be much sweeter.
Your guests will be gushing over this colorful layered cake. Have a girl on the way? Switch out the blue food coloring for a few drops of red to create a pinkish hue.
Raspberry preserves, vanilla pudding and almondy marzipan make this cake seem both delicate and rich… just like a princess.
We’re not talking about the 90s hit producer. This is your baby’s face! And it’s cake. So, I want to put it in MY face!
This all started with mommy and daddy sitting in a tree…
Maybe you're not ready to reveal the name, but you could give them a hint with the first letter.
You know who’s gonna need a bib? Your guests.
Or, you know, maybe It’s A Girl. Either way, this cake will get your guests cooing over a sweet slice.
It’s not going to be long before your house feels like a zoo, parent-to-be. For now, indulge in the kind of monkeying around you can serve on a plate.
I’m not lyin’. This is a lion. Anyway… it reminds of a practical joke: On April 1, you leave voicemail for your target saying that you just received a call from a Mr. Lyon about an issue with a new contract, a bank statement, an unpaid bill, whatever. Say that it’s urgent and give them a number to call Mr. Lyon back – the local zoo’s number!
Meow! I know it’s an overused pun, but this cake really is purr-fect for your party!
If you’re like me, you’ve probably been treating your dog like a spoiled child for most of your child-bearing years. But things are about to get a lot more real with the mini you on the way. Say goodbye to Fifi’s only-childhood in the most delicious way possible.
Sometimes, you just have to discuss the elephant in the room, like that your sister just broke up with her boyfriend or grandma had too much wine. But, this is your day, new parent! Distract them all with a different cake instead.
Not only does a rubber ducky make bathtime so much fun, but it also livens up your dessert table at a baby shower. Maybe toss a few rubber duckies in the punch bowl too!
Who is coming to the baby shower? Who? Who? Who?
This cake is un-bear-ably cute. What better way to welcome in the new cub?
