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.
Winnie the Pooh ThemeYou can make a teddy bear shaped pan into Winnie the Pooh by putting a red shirt on the bear and using a dark yellow icing for the bear. But even easier is getting plastic Winnie the Pooh characters to put on top of the cake. There are also cake toppers that can be found online that you can simply put on top of a sheet cake.
When purchasing charms or making favors, be sure to purchase or make a few more to be used as decorations for the cake. Shower cake decorations can also be found consistent with your theme. Be sure to size these items so that they fit on the sheet cake or cup cakes nicely.
It's a simple approach that's consistent with mama's preferences and the shower party theme:
(1) keep the cake base simple, sheet or cupcakes;
(2) use store-bought cake mix and frosting;
(3) incorporate favors and charms being used for the shower as baby shower cake decorations;
(4) purchase cake decorations that complements your shower theme. Voila - there you have it.
It's sure to be elegant, tasty, and no party-hostess' sanity was sacrificed for the good of the shower.
