Ready to get started? Great, here were go!
The Baby Shower Cake Choice
You may go for a single layer or you may be planning several layers to your cake. The best thing to do when it comes to choosing the cake type is to go for a crowd-pleaser. Most ladies at a baby shower love chocolate or vanilla so both would make good options. Of course, you may decide to do something a little more daring, perhaps a white almond sour cream cake would have everyone talking about your culinary skills for months to come!
The Decorations Choice
There are plenty of decoration-making options to choose from when planning a baby shower. Two that you may find work very well as a combination are homemade marshmallow fondant and gum paste. Whichever options you chose, make sure that you buy extra and give yourself plenty of time to practice your skills.
The Sugar And Spice Decorations
Sugar and Spice items can really be any baby-related things that ooze cuteness. For instance, you may decide to practice making tiny baby rattles or little cupcakes, decorations shaped into wrapped candy shapes or lollipops look great as do different shapes and sizes of buttons. Once you start making a few you will soon find that your inspiration goes wild and you will have so many ideas for sugar and spice decorations that you may very well need to bake another cake!
Make The Theme Stand Out
Of course, since this is a Sugar and Spice cake, it’s a good idea to have the lettering somewhere on the cake for all to see. You could use alphabet cutters to cut out each letter and fix them onto a banner on the cake. Or the phrase ‘Sugar and spice and everything nice’ could make its way around the cake. Experiment to see what looks best for your cake.
Indeed, planning a baby shower is a lot of fun, and making the cake can give the chance to get creative and enjoy a few hours of fun in the kitchen. Make sure that you choose a cake that everyone will enjoy, experiment with the decorations, and have your bridal theme standing out loud and clear for your cake. After that, all that’s left to do is enjoy a great baby shower!
