Of all of the food you prepare for a baby shower, the cake will be the star. It should be the centerpiece of the food table and the food item that you take the most time to plan and make. It will likely be one of the first items your guest look for so make it the most impressive sight on the table. Here are a few simple baby shower cake ideas that can help.

Cake Toppers
If you are pressed for time or do not want to decorate the top of the cake yourself, an easy way to make your cake beautiful is with a cake topper. You may be able to find these at craft stores but you will find a much greater selection online. You can even make your own cake topper with a little thought. Baby shoes, blocks, rattles, or bath toys can make a cute topper that you can wash off and give to the mom-to-be as an additional gift.

Shaped Cakes
One of the easiest baby shower cake ideas to make your cake fun and interesting is with a shaped cake. The easiest way to make one of these is with a shaped cake pan. Many craft stores with a baking section have different shaped pans. If you cannot find the one you want, try going online to search for the right pan. If you are doing a theme, try to find a pan that is in keeping with the theme. If you don’t have a theme, there are baby, rattle, stroller and bottle shaped pans that you can get.

An easy way to make a face shape is with a regular 8-inch or 9-inch round cake pan. You can add ears to the face with cupcakes or you can simply design the entire face on the cake. A baby, bear, or monkey face would work well for this.

Sugar Sheets
Sugar sheets are edible, thick sheets of sugar that come in a variety of colors. You can cut out or punch out whatever shape you want in the sheet. You could use cookie cutters on these, punches that you can buy from a local craft store, or just a pair of sharp scissors. You may be able to find them in your local craft store but will definitely be able to find them online.

The possibilities for baby shower cake ideas are endless. Looking online and in magazines can help give you some ideas for creating the perfect one for the shower you are hosting.
