Although organising a baby shower can be fun, it can also be stressful, especially if you're in charge of the cake. The highlight of the celebration–the baby shower cake–should be both delicious and gorgeous to look at. If you are unsure of how to select the right cake for someone expecting a boy, we have some tips to help you along.
When choosing a cake design, consider the baby shower's theme. For instance, if the celebration has a nautical theme, a cake featuring a sailboat or anchor design may be ideal. Consider a cake with a coloured inside to disclose the gender if it's a gender reveal party.
Keep in mind that the sky's the limit when it comes to cake and you can be as creative as you want. Cupcakes are a fun substitute that look adorable when topped with baby-themed decorations—making them ideal for a baby shower.
Ultimately, what matters most is that the parents-to-be and the guests like the cake. Instead of being stressed, have some fun finding a tasty and memorable cake for the special occasion by talking to Black Velvet Cakes about your ideas.
For parents who want to make the baby shower a gender-reveal event, frosting or sprinkles in the colours pink or blue can embellish the outside of the cake or cupcakes. Or, if you’d like the reveal to be a surprise for everyone, we can decorate the cake’s interior with whatever colour you’d like to show off your new baby’s gender as soon as you cut into the cake!
If you're seeking an uncomplicated, yet adorable, cake for a baby shower, Black Velvet Cakes has a wide selection of unique and delightful baby event cakes that can be personalised as you wish.
You can ask for a message or adorable baby-themed embellishments to be added to the cake. Ideas for decorations range from a stork, aeroplane, animals, teddy bears, cartoon characters, colourful designs, and so much more. If you don’t see what you want, just ask!
Here are some additional baby shower cake ideas from Black Velvet Cakes that work perfectly for a baby shower for a boy:
California Boy Drip Lollipop Cake
A butter sponge cake decorated with our award-winning icing is a sure winner. The cake is finished with blue drip icing, cupcakes, blue lollipops and candies, and other details to make it very clear who the cake is celebrating.
This theme can be expanded with a multi-tier version of the California Boy Drip Cake if you are having a larger party.
Cake Mates Photo Image Cake
Provide a picture of your family to create an edible top to the cake with blue and white hues on the side to welcome a new baby boy.
Include other children in the excitement by decorating the cake with one of their favourite television characters such as the family from Bluey, Chase and his team of pups from Paw Patrol, Peppa Pig, Pokemon, and more.
If you are more inclined for a simpler design that is still magnificent, such as for surprise baby shower cakes, check out the Pastel Blue Sprinkles Cake, the Vintage Minimalist Blue Message Cake, and the Regal Navy Delight Cake. With these cakes, you can add your own words or additional design elements to make it all about the mother and baby on the way.
