Baby shower cakes are a wonderful and pleasant surprise during an event for an expecting couple. At this exciting time, you'll want to celebrate with brilliant quotes such as 'roses are red, violets are blue, enjoy this cake, it's for baby and you.' Or, if you would prefer not to go for something as elaborate, there's nothing wrong with writing congratulations and the name of the mother and father. Others take a slightly more mischievous approach by trying to coax the baby out; 'come out, come out, whoever you are' also alludes to the exciting mystery of whether the newborn will be a boy or a girl. Of course, if you're having a sweepstakes that's based on the gender and/or the weight, this can add to the sense of tension and anticipation, as well as 'pink or blue, a baby is due!'
If you prefer to go down the sentimental route of things, that's not a problem either. Why not consider saying something like 'the stork is coming,' or 'this is a really special time that you should love and cherish.' Some cake designers will use beautiful calligraphic handwriting in order to make the day extra special, while also adding some intricate illustrations that will make the cake almost too good looking to eat!
There are plenty of excellent websites out there to provide you with the inspiration you deserve. By contacting local bakeries and cake makers, you'll also have the opportunity to get inspiration from some of the finest experts in the business.
