Sure, you could order a pink or blue baby shower cake and be done with it, but where’s the fun in that? You’re artistic and fun and want a cake that makes a statement.
Whatever the case, you have a ton of options for trendy and unique baby shower cakes. Whether it’s a decorating trend or a full pop culture theme, these cakes seem fresh and, frankly delicious. (Be prepared to get hungry!)
1. Shabby Chic Cake
If you’d prefer classic buttercream frosting, you and your guests will love a shabby chic cake. The soft, yummy frosting is applied in stripes for casual beauty.
2. Woodland Cake
Woodland cakes are super trendy right now, and for good reason! Woodland animals, like foxes, deer and owls, make for some cute cake decorations. Check out the bark texture added to the fondant on this adorable cake. Even without coloring it brown, you still get a feel for the forest. Hand out “Born to be Wild” bottle openers as party favors to go along with the theme.
3. Giraffe Cake
Of all the safari animals, giraffes are often the favorites. Why not making the entire baby shower cake giraffe-themed? You could add a little giraffe or cover an entire layer in giraffe print. Or both! Want to get the baby a gift that goes along with the theme? Try this giraffe lovey.
4. Naked Cake
While there are people who don’t love fondant, there are others who only like a scant amount of buttercream frosting. Sound like you? Go with a “naked” cake. It’s covered in buttercream then most is scraped off so you can see the naked cake beneath. It isn’t as cloyingly sweet as other cakes can be. Plus, it looks mighty cool! Like the Oh Baby cake topper? Get one of your own!
5. Star Wars Jedi Cake
With the new Star Wars movies coming out every year, there’s a resurgence of popularity for the sci-fi franchise. Are you a Star Wars-loving couple? Then get a themed baby shower cake. “It’s a Jedi!”
6. Epic Harry Potter Cake
Now that the original kids who grew up with Harry Potter are old enough to have their own families, Harry Potter cakes are super trendy. While this example is especially epic, you can use it for inspiration for a smaller cake.
