Baby 'clothesline' cake - Start with a sheet cake in any flavor you choose,(Make one from a box or from scratch, or purchase one that hasn't been frosted.) Frost the cake baby blue. A few drops of blue food coloring into white frosting will do the trick. Using a decorator's bag or a tube of writing icing, draw a horizontal line from one side of the cake to the other. Do this about two thirds down from the top of the cake. You can purchase little blue and yellow 'scrapbooking' baby clothes and blankets. Place those hanging from the line across the cake. A cute idea would be to draw in a little sun at the top of the cake, and grass and flowers at the bottom of the cake under the clothesline. You can get different colored writing icing tubes for this. A really cute saying on this cake would be, 'Little fingers, little toes, itty-bitty baby clothes.'
When you're looking for cake recipes you can find cookbooks in the recipe section in your local bookstore or library. You can also find a selection of recipes for cakes and diaper cakes on the internet. If you can't find the exact recipe that you have in mind for your shower you can make any adaptations that you need to modify the cake to your liking.
If you are invited to a baby shower and looking for a unique present, perhaps one of your choices would be a baby diaper cake. Let say the mom-to-be is expecting a baby boy, so the best thing you should do is to think of a diaper cake that is suitable for the child's gender. Diaper cakes are always a crowd-pleaser and most of all extremely useful for any parents.
