Every expectant mom looks forward to her baby shower. This is the day she is pampered by her dear ones. The mom-to-be is treated with her much loved delicacies, gifts to mark the journey into motherhood and a lot of games for making the event even more memorable. And on top of all these, there is the delicious cake.
Baby shower cake makes a great centerpiece for the occasion and spearheads excitement at the baby shower. Here I have discussed about the different kinds of baby shower cakes which you can make at your home.
Butterfly baby shower cake
For making this cake, you will need 2 heart shaped cakes and 6-8 cupcakes. Place the cupcakes in a row in order to form the body of a butterfly. Then put the heart shaped cakes on both sides of the row of the cupcakes. To make the wings of the butterfly ice the cupcake with vanilla frosting or strawberry flavored frosting. This cake is best for a small baby shower of around 15 people.
Stork baby shower cake
A stork is a great harbinger of a baby to come. It is a perfect idea for a baby shower cake. You will need 2 rectangular-shaped cakes (each 12 inches) and 2 circular cakes (8 inches and 12 inches) to create the stork.
Cut one rectangular cake diagonally and place one of its sides near the 8 inch cake to make the neck. The 8 inch cake is needed to make the face.
Place the other diagonal piece of cake that has a broad part touching the round cake and the pointed part on outside for the beak.
Place the 12 inch cake as the stork’s body.
The other rectangular cake needs to be cut into two parts and placed below the round cake as the legs.
- The face and body can be iced with neutral color. The legs an be done with deep chocolate icing and melted chocolate can be used to make the eyes, beak and wings.
Pineapple baby shower cake
Soak two rectangular shaped sponge cakes in pineapple juice and layer them with pineapples and whipped cream in center. Top up the cake with cherries, pineapples and cream. Your cake is ready! It is juicy and can be served as a dessert item as well.
Ordering the cake from a reputed bakery shop like Creative Cakes is also a great idea. When you opt for professionally made cakes you will have more variety and innovative designs to choose from. Some of the baby showers cakes in Brisbane that has been made at Creative Cakes include:
