Do you have the honor of hosting a baby shower for a friend or relative who is having a baby girl? Well, if you are looking for advice on what type of baby shower desserts or cakes you should serve your guests, then you have come to the right place!
Before deciding on the perfect dessert for your special occasion, try considering the following baby shower cake ideas:
What is the girl baby shower theme?
Often, baby showers have a theme that will match the baby’s nursery or bedroom. If, for instance, the theme of the nursery was going to be all things related to Winnie The Pooh, you could base the shower around Pooh and his friends. As far as the cakes are concerned, you could have cupcakes designed to represent each of the characters from the Pooh stories. You could still choose to go with a completely different theme from that of the nursery. Themes for girl baby showers that you can’t go wrong with are fairies, princesses and anything that involves lots of flowers rainbows, or the color pink.
Ordering vs. preparing the baby shower cake
If you decide to purchase a cake or desserts, then your job will be much easier. There is a wide variety of places you can go to have cakes and desserts baked to your specifications. You will certainly have peace of mind, especially if you order from a bakery you trust.
If however, you do decide to bake the cakes yourself, then your only limitations may be your own creativity and actual baking ability. If you are trying new recipes or are not experienced at baking, then it would be wise to do a few dummy runs on recipes and ideas. Baby pink is almost always used at baby girl showers. To make baby pink frosting you could use a few drops of red coloring and mix it with white frosting – hey presto you have baby pink frosting! Yellow and other gender neutral colors are used as well. It’s all up to you and the mommy-to-be!
