I know you want to give the very best you can to the expectant parents-to-be.
I know you also want only the very best arrangements to be made for the baby shower: the games that will be played, the food to be arranged, and most of all, the cake that you will gift for the baby shower.
Choosing the perfect baby shower cake is one of the most difficult decisions to make, and I agree with you when you say that a baby shower cake has to be perfect, because after all, it is the center of attraction at the baby shower.
If you want to choose the perfect baby shower cake for the party, but do not know how to go about it, and would like some pointers on how exactly to choose the best, then here are some tips for you.
Tips to choose perfect baby shower cake
First, decide on the flavor you would like your baby shower cake to be. If you know the expectant mother well, then of course, you know what she would prefer.
If you do not know her, then ask a friend or neighbor; try to get a flavor that would suit all the guests present, and keep in mind their preferences and allergies, if any.
You could also ask the expectant mother if the nursery has any particular theme, and you could choose a cake that keeps with this theme. Imagine the motherâ€™s delight when she sees that the shape of the baby shower cake is in keeping with the fairy pattern on the wallpaper in the nursery!
Decide on your budget before you order the baby shower cake.
Also, tell the baker the number of people that are expected for the shower, and make the cake a little larger so that guests and especially the mother-to-be will be able to take home some.
You could opt for cupcakes. This is the latest trend in baby shower cakes today, and this way, guests can have small servings of the cake, and if they want, they can always grab another cupcake. There will be less wastage, and less cleaning up to be done.
Remember that in certain seasons, you will have to place the order for your baby shower cake well in advance, sometimes even a few weeks ahead of the actual date.
Ask around and find the best bakery, or ask the expectant mother or other relatives if they can recommend someone.
Arrange to pick up the cake on the morning of the shower, if possible, in the previous evening. This will ensure that the cake is freshly baked.
If you like, you can bake the cake yourself: there are plenty of recipes available over the Internet, and you could experiment with the baking well in advance, so that you can always buy one if your experiments do not work out too well!
All the Best for the baby shower!
