1. Pretty in Pink – Adorable Baby Shower Cakes
Here’s the perfect cake for you, if you are expecting a baby girl. Create two baby feet out of fondant or marzipan which are linked to the sleeping bottom half of the baby’s body. Place this on top of the cake. After rolling out a sheet of pink coloured fondant, place that over the body, as if a diaper was covering the sleeping baby’s bottom. Further, decorate the cake with pink fondant, and you can even have the text “it’s a girl” written on it. This is a cake which is simple, but perfect for a baby shower!
2. Bears with a Banner – Pink and Grey Combination
If you love bears, you will love this baby shower cake. Create a cake out of a few tiers. After covering each tier with a different decoration of icing or fondant, create the figures of two small bears out of marzipan or fondant. Have one bear stand on the middle tier, holding a banner, while placing the other bear on top of the cake, holding the other end of this banner. You can write whatever you’d like on your fondant banner, whether it’s the name of the baby girl or just a few hearts, anything will look great!
