Baby Shower Cakes

They come in many shapes and sizes, and some aren’t even edible! How do you pick the right baby shower cake? First, find out how many people will be attending your party. That will make a huge difference in your search. If you’re expecting a large turnout, you may want a sheet cake. For a smaller gathering, you may want to consider a different alternative, like cupcakes!

The possibilities are endless

No baby shower would be complete, without a beautiful cake. Below are a variety of different types to consider.


Cupcakes are growing in popularity. They are not only convenient, but come in a variety of styles and shapes. You can purchase them in the design of a baby bottle, cradle or numerous other styles. Not to mention, there will be no need for additional utensils and plates.

Picture Cakes

Another creative idea is a picture cake. Many bakers can put any picture on the top, as edible frosting.

Matching the design with the gender or theme

If you know the sex of the baby, you can go with an all pink or blue one as the case may be. However, if you do not know the gender, you can do a something more neutral.

It’s also a good idea to try to tie the design to the theme of the party. Therefore, if you are looking to throw a “Winnie the Pooh” baby shower, you can have the cake decorated with that in mind.

Toy Block Cake

This is easily done by putting 1 or 2 different sized square cakes on top of each other. Make sure the largest is on the bottom and the smallest on the top. If decorated right, it should list exactly like the child’s toys.

Belly Cake

By putting a circular cake on top of a rectangular one, it will look like a pregnant belly.

Non-edible ideas

Not all cakes need to be edible. 2 great non-edible ideas are as follows:

Diaper Cake

It is made up of either cloth or disposable diapers and embellished with various baby items, such as pacifiers, baby brushes etc. While this may not be traditional, it is a great alternative for someone who does not wish to have an actual cake at the shower. Not only is it a beautiful addition, it is also very practical gift idea.

Flower Cake

These are available from most florists or you can make your own. Simply press flowers into a Styrofoam cake shape and you’re ready to go!

Important note: Some women may have dietary restrictions while they are pregnant. This is an important thing to consider. A common restriction is no sugar. Cakes can be made of angle food, which is ok. Be sure to consult your entire guest list before you make any decision.
