Whether you've been volunteered to make a baby shower cake, or you are a cake decorator looking for creative designs for baby shower cakes, you can find lots of ideas just by browsing the baby shower invite section of a greeting card rack.
The best baby showers cakes will dovetail with the theme of the baby shower and thus the baby shower invite as well. Here are a few of the most popular thematic categories for baby shower cakes: nursery rhymes (the cheerful ones) and games (like "Patty Cake"), baby animals, butterflies and baby blocks. For more visuals for a creative baby showers cake, browse through children's picture books. These will provide inspiration and design ideas for your baby shower cakes.
Finally, here are three descriptions of baby shower cakes that are easy as 1-2-3 to make and are inspired by popular baby shower themes:

The petit fours are filled with fruit preserves and covered with tasty, poured fondant. Each word in the baby shower cakes message is piped onto a petit four, and then these are arranged to spell out the message. The remaining petit fours are decorated with cute teddy bears, rattles, tiny T-shirts and other nursery items (can't you just smell the sweet baby powder?).
Many baby shower cakes can be made with variations on this. For example the petit four blocks can be decorated to specifically reflect the theme of the baby shower.
As you can see, coming up with specialty cakes designs for your baby shower cakes can be fun, although not as fun as making these baby showers cakes and presenting them!
