Baby Shower Cakes
Baby shower cakes…the edible centerpiece! This statement is true of many cakes. When planning on a sweet treat for the baby shower you will want to consider the number of people that will be attending the shower. Professionally made shower cakes cost anywhere from $1.00 to $2.50 a slice per person with that in mind let's talk sweets!
There are many different flavors and fillings for cakes, which creates many possible combinations. You will want to consult with the mom-to-be or at the very least her family if you don’t already know her preferences as far as cakes goes. Although many people LOVE chocolate keep in mind that it can cause allergic reactions and if you choose a cake solely made of chocolate you may be excluding people from a delectable treat. Same goes for coconut...Just cake for thought!
Time of day, yeah that can play a role in determining what flavor cake you decide on. How 'bout carrot cake as a delicious option for an early or brunch time baby shower. And petit fours make a great choice for a mid-afternoon or high tea time baby shower; they would also go great with our ‘Barnes & Baby’ baby shower theme. For an evening baby shower cake we would like to suggest a specialty cake, maybe Black Forrest or a fancy dessert. Of course, if you are using a theme then by all means, decorate the cake to go along with the theme such as a sports cake for Bouncing Baby Boy Brunch, a basket for A Tisket A Tasket theme, or a Gold Star for the Walk of Fame Theme. You could always make it in a flavor compliments the theme such as a banana cake for a Jungle Baby theme.
Many baby shower cakes are so elaborate, they are used as centerpieces, but we want you to be able to have an edible artistic creation that won't cost you an arm and a leg! So we will provide you with the directions to make some of your own edible masterpieces, if you should choose that. You just need the time.
One important thing to remember is your baby shower cake should directly relate to the theme of the party.
