Stork Cake stork<cake may seem a bit outdated, but it's a classic and formal cake idea that you can make for your baby shower. Typically, a baby shower is going to have a variety of people that you know attending. This means that you need to have a cake that is elegant, fun and not too controversial (say, a dirty diaper cake that is a great choice at some baby showers). One element to add to any cake is the inside, as should be considered for all of the cakes in this content. If your friends and family don't yet know the gender of your baby, than you can put a color that represents the gender on the inside of the cake. When you go to cut it, everyone will see and you can rejoice over the gender of the baby. This is a great idea inside any cake, but certainly with a stork cake as well.
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.
Your baby shower cake ideas should be consistent with the theme of the party. Consider these helpful hints if you are trying to keep it in budget, have limited resources to rely on (e.g. friends that bake, etc), need to manage time and resources, and most important your sanity.
