For fun, write as many different nursery rhymes as you can think of on note cards. Make as many note cards as the number of your guests. Then cut each note card at the middle of each rhyme. Seat your guests by giving each the first half of a nursery rhyme and having her find the rest of the rhyme at a place setting.
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cake may seem a bit outdated, but it's a classic and formal cake idea that you can make for your baby shower.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.
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.
