When you plan a baby shower, the 2 most important things are the guests and the food! Sometimes, when you decide to throw a themed baby shower, it may be difficult to plan out the perfect food to complement the exact theme. But here are some suggestions on how to incorporate Mother Goose food into your baby shower.
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.
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!
