Everyone loves baby showers–they’re the perfect occasion to celebrate the anticipated arrival of a new life and new member of a family!
If you’re not familiar with baby showers, they are a party where friends, family, and other relatives of the expecting parents come together to give presents and well wishes to the parents-to-be—and eat cake!
The shower is also a time when some parents choose to reveal the baby’s gender. Often, only one of the parents (usually the mother) is aware of the gender of the unborn child. At the shower, she announces the gender to the other parent and guests by using the colours blue for a boy and pink for a girl in the party decorations or cake.
Sometimes, both parents will be in the dark as to the baby’s gender, and will hire a bakery or balloon company to create something with a pink or blue interior that they can open to reveal the gender to everyone at once!
In other words, there is a lot of intrigue and excitement around baby showers. Using a well-decorated cake can add an element of whimsy and fun to important gender reveal celebrations. Expectant parents will cherish this occasion when you bring a cake from Black Velvet Cakes, which has the best baby shower cakes in Sydney.
The popularity of serving a special cake for a baby shower has grown significantly in recent years. People want the most beautiful cake to celebrate the coming arrival of their unborn child. The right cake is a highlight for any celebration (especially baby showers) and will genuinely make the parents’ special day unforgettable.
Here are some ideas for the kind of cakes you might want at a baby shower:
Gender Reveal Cakes
A gender reveal cake for the baby shower achieves two goals at once: revealing the baby’s gender and celebrating new life joining the family. It's a really exciting way to enjoy the baby shower.
The California Baby Gender Reveal Lollipop Cake, Vintage Style Gender Reveal Cake, Baby Blue Ice Cream Cone Cake, or the Baby Pink Ice Cream Cone Cake are perfect examples of cakes that can be personalised for the event.
You can choose to decorate the exterior of the cake to show off your baby’s gender, or, let us do the surprising! We’ll fill the inside of the cake with pink or blue, and you can surprise everyone at the party when you cut into the cake for the first time!
It’s easy to make the cake the centre of attention and conversation by choosing one of the super clever creations this Sydney shop has to offer. For example, the Dreamy Unicorn Cake with a golden horn (edible, of course) rising from the centre is always a good choice. Then, there’s the What a Big Monster Cake, the colourful New Ways of Thinking Cake with gold-leaf styling, and the Bee and Lady Beetle Garden Cake.
More Traditional Baby Shower Cakes
Even the more traditional cakes from Black Velvet Cakes have a unique flare. The artistry used to create these confectionary masterpieces is truly a wonder.
Take, for example, the Pastel Minimalist Cake. The soft swirls of pastel colours make this a subtle centrepiece for any baby shower. The same could be said for the Pastel Sprinkles Cakes that come in pink, blue, purple, and green—as well as Sprinkles Confetti Cake, which is covered from top to bottom in multicoloured sprinkles. There are plenty of baby shower cake designs for boys and girls to choose from!
