A baby shower is a special event to celebrate the new mum to be. Friends and family go out of their way to congratulate the mum to be with gifts and parties to usher in the new baby. Whether you are celebrating a first-time mum or celebrating the addition of another child, one thing is a must have; a baby shower cake.
The event is usually carried out just a few days or weeks before the baby arrives. It’s a way of friends and family to encourage the mum to be in her last trimester of the pregnancy. Just like other events, baby showers also have custom baby shower cakes designed just for the event. Their are different designs for baby shower cakes for boys as well as baby shower cakes for girls.
Here is how to select the perfect baby shower cake.
As a close friend to the new mum and one planning her baby shower, you are definitely aware of the gender of the child, unless the mother chooses not to scan for this. When choosing the baby shower cake, it is important to select one appropriate for the gender of the child. There are different designs for boys and girls and getting this wrong is unforgivable.
Have the theme of the event in mind
Besides cake, what is the overall theme of the event? What colors are you settling for? When the cake is in line with the overall theme and colors, its compliments the event and ceases to be just a casual cake that is a must-have.
What is the number of guests attending?
If you are about ten people, a small, non-tire cake would be enough. But with a guest list of 50 and above, you need at least a two-tier cake. Your baker will be able to advice on the right cake size depending on your guest list. Hence, it is useful to have this before visiting a cake shop.
While some people will be comfortable spending a thousand dollars on a cake, some would rather use the money to buy reasonable gifts for the mum and child. As friends planning a baby shower for one of your own, you will be able to determine the amount you are willing to spend on cake considering other bills as well.
Design and decoration
Custom designs make the best baby shower cakes. You get to choose your colors, design of the cake, flavor and overall decoration. You can have the theme revolve around the gender of the child or one to congratulate the mum to be focusing on what she likes. With a custom design, all your preferences are considered, unlike a ready-made baby shower cake.
