Baby Shower Cakes for Girls And Boys

Hosting a baby shower is a lot of work. Choosing the cake for the shower is a big part of that work. When I was planning my sister-law's baby shower, I went back and forth between choosing a cupcake tree or a large sheet cake that was personalized. I know that by looking at baby shower cake pics my cake choices became clearer and my intention more focused. I had a much more clear image in my mind of what I wanted the baby shower cake to look like. I opted for the larger sheet cake. The larger cake gave me more freedom to express the intended theme.

Focusing on the theme, colors and whether the baby to be will be a boy or a little girl can help you focus on the cake for the baby shower as well. Having a myriad of baby shower cake pictures to look at and analyze help as well. Well executed cakes from a talented baker and designer are an investment. You should have a clear intention and be able to describe exacltly what you want to your baker.

The end result will be a cake that will receive "oohs" and "aahs". The pictures I have selected are not arranged in any particular order. I have noticed that the trend in baby shower cakes is a somewhat more neutralized design that works for either boy or girl. However, I have included pics of traditional boy and girl baby shower cakes as well.

Having a baby changes the way you view your in-laws. I love it when they come to visit now. They can hold the baby and I can go out.
