Baby Boy or Baby Girl ThemeMaking a baby shaped cake is a natural for this theme. You can easily do this with regular round baking pans and cupcakes. Make an 8-inch round cake, 9-inch round cake, and 16 cupcakes. The 8-inch round cake can be positioned for the head, the 9-inch round cake for the body and 3 to 4 cupcakes can be used to make each arm and leg. You can tint white frosting a flesh color by using a tiny amount of cooper icing color. You can also simply use a 9-inch round cake to make a baby's face. There are also pans shaped as baby rattles, buggies, and bottles that you can use.
With your party theme, and sweet tooth preferences in mind, your baby shower cake ideas could easily fit on a sheet cake or cupcakes. Keep the cake mix and frosting consistent with your party theme and mama's sweet tooth preferences as much as possible. Here is where you can save yourself by utilizing store bought cake mix and frosting - when bought on sale, you have an even better deal!
Another awesome idea is to make a baby shower cake in the shape of Old Woman in the Shoe. There are many different recipes you can follow to make a simple pound cake. Then after you are done, carefully, remove the cakes from the pans. Wrap the cakes in plastic wrap and freeze them for an hour to make for easier cutting. Once they are ready, remove the plastic wrap, then level the tops and sides of the cakes. Lay one cake on a cake board and stand the other cake upright next to one end of the horizontal cake. Bevel the top of the upright cake on both sides to make a rooftop. Round the free end of the horizontal cake to form the front of the shoe. Cover both cakes with white frosting. Use chocolate wafer cookies to form roof shingles. Squeeze brown frosting around the bottom edge of the show to form the sole. You can then use cinnamon candies and licorice to lace the shoe. Stick on a chocolate graham cracker door and window. Add frosting windowpanes and doorknob. Stand toy children around the cake.
