A cake is often the centerpiece of any event or party. When the event is baby shower, the cake has to be a showstopper!
With people focusing on personalized gifting for almost every event, the same is now applicable to cakes as well. The days of the plain old Black Forest or a Rich Truffle are over! Dessert stories starring quaint characters, baby rattles and sometimes even family members all in 3D, all made of dough, sugar and butter-cream icing are available these days.
Some of the trends that currently exist for baby shower cakes consists of revealing the gender of the baby, when the dessert is cut into and there is either pink or blue icing. While bears and ducks used to dominate the décor on the cakes, these days the trend is towards having woodland creatures, like owls, hedgehogs and moose. Another growing trend is a special story-inspired cake, whether it’s a nursery rhyme, a Disney classic or some other story special to the mother’s heart. As much as the celebration is for the baby the cake themes can simply reflect the tastes and uniqueness of the mom-to-be.
Another growing trend is that a cake does not have to be a cake at all. Cupcakes can be used in the most creative arrangements. Mini gender reveal cakes are also high in demand. Once the guests bite into a cupcake they find pink or blue buttercream. This is a very dramatic and sweet-way to share the news of the baby’s sex with family and friends.
While one can practically have any theme for a baby shower cake, its best to keep the theme gentle and soft. Something that is soothing to the heart and minds of everyone attending the event.
While some of these cakes can be quiet expensive, the cost doesn’t seem to have stopped customers from ordering exactly what they have in mind.
