Baby Shower Sweetness: Top 5 Trends in Baby Shower Cakes

The Top 5 trends in baby shower cakes:

Our clients are hosting baby showers with some serious style! From the meticulously chosen invitation and party theme, to the thoughtful favors, to the design centerpiece of the party: the cake! Here are some of the trends we've seen and the fresh approach and design style our clients are taking....

1.) Modern/Stylish Color Pallets

"Greige" (grey+beige), tangerine and blush

Black & White with vibrant pops of color

Light Aqua and Brown

2.) Using the baby's name in the cake design...

3.) Sentimental Themes. Sometimes the sweetest themes comes from a very personal inspiration as a child. Here are some classic themes that are sweet throughout the decades...

nautical themed cake

Clothesline - baby bloomers, socks and dresses must be the cutest thing in history!

Baby feet! If you are a mom, you know that tiny little baby feet are forever the sweetest little things in the world.

Winnie, Eeyore and Piglet actually get cuter with age (after all, they are 85 years old this year!). This uber-classic theme can be passed down for generations!

Transportation Cake - there is nothing more "boy" than a transportation cake!

4.) Gender Neutral Cakes. Nowadays, many parents are waiting to find out the sex of the baby until birth.... recapturing the same excitement of the "olden days" Shower themes don't need pink and blue to have a strong identity. Take look at these gender neutral cakes....

This baby shower was "build a library" theme where all the guests were asked to bring their favorite childhood book. The cake was the center of conversation where guests pointed out the sugar version of their favorite books!

This shower took place over the Thanksgiving weekend, and was affectionately called "Welcome little pumpkin" :)

This shower was for a sweet baby girl, whose mommy loves green. We added a little turtle, teeny-tiny bits of pink and the baby's name for personal and sentimental touches.

This mommy was so excited to keep the baby's sex a secret, we went with the perfect neutral color pallet, yellow and white!

5.) Mod: Mod is back baby. Clean lines, prams and polka dots will never go out of style. period.
