I love how a cake dresses up a party! Because it is so often the focal point, we wanted to compile some of the cutest cakes for a baby shower that we could find. I love these cakes for various reasons: the textures, colors, and overall designs–they just plain make me happy! Enjoy!

I love the “Welcome Baby” banner, textured polka dots, stripes and the frilly carriage. Sarah of Let There Be Cake balances all these elements wonderfully to create a simply adorable baby shower cake. (Plus, aren’t the animals cute?!) You can check out her gallery here.

Isn’t this cake just darling? It’s sort of what I imagine for the quintessential boy baby shower cake. And how can you go wrong with elephants? You can’t. Clarissa from Little Sugar Bake Shop has lots of darling creations on her Flickr site. Check out her gallery here.

Aren’t these bow ties just adorable? They make a great theme for a boy’s shower but I especially love the texture of the cake and the color palette. While I love the standard blue for boy and pink for a girl, sometimes it is nice to mix in some other equally as wonderful colors. The talented Melody Brandon, co-owner of the Sweet and Saucy Shop makes ridiculously gorgeous cakes. You can follow her Sweet and Saucy Blog for beautiful inspiration and shop at her Sweet and Saucy Supply shop to help make those inspirations a reality!

I am currently obsessed with ruffles and this color is absolutely awesome. Can you believe this cake is homemade? Blogger Jamie created this cake for a friend’s shower and promises that it doesn’t require too much effort (for the ruffles anyway). Jamie, I am in awe! I love cakes with texture–especially for a little boy’s shower–it just feels beautiful. Head over to her blog to check it out! The Danhill Family Blog
Girl Baby Shower Cake Ideas:

Doesn’t this cake just seem like a burst of happiness? Bows, ribbon, flowers, pearls and pink! It just makes me giddy! It could also work for a first birthday too. Owner and designer Kelly from Piece O’ Cake has lots of beautiful creations. Check them out here. There is just something about a beautiful cake that elevates the “specialness” of an event. Am I right?
Another adorable cake from Clarissa at Little Sugar Bake Shop! Hot pink, black and white are always in for any girly event. And a baby shower is no exception! I also love how bold and sassy the zebra print with polka dots motif is–it’s just so fun!

Here is another cake from Melody’s Sweet and Saucy Shop. The texture on this cake is ridiculously awesome. I had never seen anything like it before. I just want to reach through the screen and touch it! Plus, who doesn’t love pink bows for a little girl’s shower?
I absolutely love the delicateness of this cake. The shades of pink and the texture of the roses are simply picture perfect. You can check out how blogger Megan from Wanna Be A Country Cleaver actually made this cake–with a delicious recipe too! Megan, you give me hope that one day I can make something this pretty!
