No expectant mother in the world will turn down a delicious cake during her baby shower! Most mothers suffer and makes sacrifices in their diet ensure that they’re eating healthy, nutritious foods to help their baby grow. A baby shower not only means a time to celebrate and come together with friends and family, but for the mother to indulge herself just a little bit!
When deciding the type of baby shower cake to either prepare or purchase for a baby shower, there are several important elements that need to be considered. Often, a baby shower is conducted without the expectant mother’s knowledge or planning, so the organizer is required to understand individual tastes, and choose the best possible cake design and recipe. There are many specific types and designs of cake that are sold for baby showers as gifts and centrepieces, but some stand out as especially popular amongst consumers.
One of the key trends in baby shower cake design is using specific shape templates. These are often relevant to pregnancy or a birth, and may recreate different outlines associated with childbirth. For example, cakes designed with a large, round oval as a foundation give the impression of a pregnant woman’s “baby belly.” Another example is a cake that incorporates the shapes and design elements found in a baby carriage. Because these shapes are so commonly associated with pregnancy, they resonate with gift givers and mothers-to-be subconsciously, and foster feelings of joy and happiness.
Additionally, the color that you choose for your cake can go a long way towards creating a unique and memorable gift. Blue has always been a staple color for boys, while pink is instantly associated with girls. While you can’t go wrong with the classics, you don’t have to limit yourself to blue and pink, if you want a more personal touch. You can incorporate the colors that the parents have used to decorate the baby’s nursery, or in the color of the clothes that the parents want to dress their baby in.
This isn’t true just for colors and shapes, but also for the characters and designs you can put on a baby shower cake. If the parents have used a country and western theme to decorate their baby’s nursery, then a cake with icing shaped like a cowboy plush teddy bear and western logo will tie in perfectly! You may not be able to get this information beforehand, or the parents may not have finalized the design yet for their nursery yet, but if you can get it, there’s no better way to make your wonderful gift even more memorable!
