Use as CenterpiecesDepending on the exact size and specifications of your baby shower mini cakes these can serve as wonderful centerpieces for the baby shower table decorations. Just think you get more bang for the buck this way. Your decorations and your cake all rolled into one! If you decorate each mini cake in a different way with different colored frosting and different decorations you can easily create a ton of stunning centerpieces. For example if your baby shower theme was Noah's Ark you could make 5 mini cakes for the centerpieces and then on each cake decorate different groups of animals that will go onto the ark.
Just to carry the theme a little farther instead of doing the traditional Noah's ark theme of two of each animal by do two of each animal as a mother and baby. So on one cake at a table you might have a mother and baby Giraffe. Then at another table you might have a mother and cute baby elephant cake. Of course at the table where the guest of honor will be sitting you could tie in the theme by adding the ark into the decoration. People will love to walk around and look at these wonderful unique mini baby shower cakes!
Just as a birthday party has popular symbols, such as balloons and candles, a baby shower cake often features one or more of the following decorations:
~Baby clothing, such as a jumper or booties;
~Toys, such as blocks, teddy bears, and rattles;
~Accessories, such as pacifier, baby bottle, or carriage;
~Flowers, especially spring flowers and buds;
~Angels and storks;
~Cute baby animals, such as rabbits, ducks, lady bugs, elephants, penguins, and butterflies;
~Infant dolls; and
Go for pastel colors or select bold fun colors. There are no fixed rules, unless your guests of honor expect certain traditions to be followed. Some people prefer pink, baby blue, or yellow--although these colors are not required.
One of the circus baby shower themes ideas for the invitations is to recreate typical "Admit One" tickets into a larger version with the details of the party printed on the back, such as the time, date and other useful information regarding the baby party. You can also print large ticket templates onto vividly colored cardboard for much larger tickets to provide a more humorous look on the invitations. To make the invitations appear more authentic, you can put the ticket invitations in a box of circus animal crackers and deliver it to the guests personally.
