A few months ago, I took a trip to New York City for my baby shower, and one of the first things I learned was that, yes, there are actually two types of baby shower decorations: baby-sized and baby-shaped.
But that doesn’t mean there’s no room for you to go wild with these custom-made baby-themed wedding cakes.
Here’s how to choose the right one for your special day.
The baby-size baby showercake is one of my favorite ways to give your wedding guests something special.
And if you’re not completely sure which size you want, it’s always a good idea to measure your guests before deciding on the size of the cake.
I like to start by measuring the guests’ feet.
That way, I can figure out which way they’re standing and how long they’re going to sit.
If I’m making a large cake, I’ll measure the guests feet from their knees down.
If the guests are standing tall, I’d measure from their waist up.
For a smaller cake, like a baby shower gift, you might be able to measure from the back of the guests foot to the tip of their foot.
The way I measure is with a measuring tape.
When I first made this cake, my guests were all dressed up in their best baby-print baby-baking outfits.
The only things I didn’t like about the cake were the candles and the floral print on the cake, which were my babies favorite.
This baby shower-themed cake turned out great, so I made it a little larger than my guests’ request.
But you can make it even larger if you like.
For my baby-baby cake, the cake measures about 5 inches wide and 2 inches tall.
And to make it easier to decorate, I added a few decorative baby items to the cake as well.
For this cake (the same size as the one I made last year), I used a cute little cupcake holder, which my baby helped make.
I had to add a little extra material to make the cupcake holders stand upright.
When you’re finished, the cupcakes will look a little different, but they’ll still look good.
I’m sure you’ve had baby showers in your life.
