It's a great experience, planning and hosting a shower. While the expectations may be high, the pressure need not be. To maintain that, inquire ever so discreetly with the mother-to-be and her sweet tooth preferences.
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.
Sports Baby Shower Cake IdeasA 9-inch round cake can easily be made into a baseball with some white frosting with red frosting piped on for the baseball laces. A soccer ball or basketball could also be easily made out of this size cake, you just need different frosting colors. You could also cut this sized cake into the shape of a football. Having a few different ball shaped cakes can make this theme fun and provide plenty of cake for your guests.
