Cake Decorating Supplies for Baby Shower Cakes
Of course, we cake lovers don’t need a special reason for eating a cake, but one of the most exciting occasions for making and decorating super cute cakes is definitely a baby shower party. Not only are these parties just so full of happiness and love, but also they give bakers a chance to really let imagination fly and maybe go a little more over the top with decorations and colours.
So, here are some cute ideas and cake decorating supplies that you might use for baby shower party cakes.
Baby essentials theme
I think we are all familiar with cakes with decorations shaped like prams, pacifiers, baby clothing etc. Silicone moulds with according shapes make it really easy to turn a regular cake into a baby shower cake. Use blue or pink fondant to reveal the gender, add some sprinkles to make it more fun, and there you have it – a cute baby shower cake.
Unicorn theme is super popular these days, offering a good chance for playing around with different colours and decorations. Because unicorns are all about magic and fantasy, sky is the limit. For the icing, I would probably choose buttercream to make the cake look fluffy and cloudy. As unicorns go together with rainbows, you can use all the possible colours, but usually more mild and pastel shades are used. To get nice shape for the unicorn horn, silicone moulds can be used again. To easily paint the unicorn horn, silver or golden edible food spray could be used. And for final touch, add some star shaped sprinkles or glitter to make the cake look really magical.
Baby animals theme
Choosing a baby shower theme for baby boys is maybe a bit more complicated than choosing the one for girls. Well, I think one super cute idea for boys (and girls) is baby animals theme. Soon-to-be-parents often have cute animal related nicknames for their baby bumps even before they know the gender of the baby. So why not stick with the “little monkey”, “froggy” or “baby bear” theme when planning a baby shower. There are super cute silicone moulds available to help make the baby animal figurines. Colour options are again endless – either woodlands theme with darker and brighter shades or mild pastel colours.
Obviously there are heaps more cake decorating supplies that you could use, but these should get your imagination running and amazing looking cake shouldn’t be too far away.
