Connect the Dots

Celebrating the birth of a baby means gathering with friends and family, oohing and aahing over the world's tiniest booties and loveliest layettes and, of course, cake. Delicious, gorgeous cake. Take a little inspiration from these beautiful baby shower cakes that are just about as sweet as that bundle of joy to be!

Connect the Dots
True, the outside of this happy lemon cake with coconut buttercream from Sugarhero.com is lovely enough, with its multi-sized, multi-hued sugar pearl beads causing a polka dot party. But, slice it up and you'll find colorful tiny cake balls dotting the inside, too.

Bring a touch of class—and some serious DIY wow-factor—to your shower with petit fours from thecakegirls.com, made using circle cookie cutters on pound cake, covering with icing and using stencils to decorate rolled fondant circle toppers. Spell out B-A-B-Y using alphabet cookie cutters on rolled fondant for that extra-cute touch.

Get Naked

Get Naked

For those who like their cake a little more on the keep-it-simple side, take a cue from Shannon Claire, who shares this chic (and gender-neutral) shower layer cake on her Burlap and Lace blog. She used a boxed lemon cake mix with strawberry compote and vanilla icing layers and created her own cake topper, which, she admits, took a long time, but cost less than a buck.

Twinkle, Twinkle

Le Partie Sugar

Twinkle, Twinkle

A "Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star"-themed baby shower calls for a star-worthy cake. This sophisticated white version highlighted on the La Partie Sugar site, is simple and stark (with a little frill from an icing pen tip) on the surface, but rich red velvet underneath. The theme unifier? Sparkly silver stars on wood dowels topping the cake. Shine on!

The Big Reveal

The Big Reveal

Gender reveal cakes are all the rage, and this lovely version, from twotwentyone.net, is a pretty great example of why there's such a fuss over this trend. On the outside: simple white icing with pink, blue and yellow polka dots and the words "It's A ..." Slice into the cake, and the blue frosting finishes the sentence: "Boy!"

Surprise Inside

Betty Crocker

Surprise Inside

When you're dying to spill the beans about the gender of your baby, try spilling the M&Ms instead. This clever cake from Betty Crocker is made using two box cake mixes and store-bought fluffy white whipped frosting. Simply use a round cutter on the middle two layers, fill the hole with pink or blue candies, top and frost. So fun!

Pop Goes the Cake

Another fun gender reveal treat for your baby shower? Cake pops. We love these pink and blue pops from TheCakeBallerina, decorated with pink and blue question marks. One bite will show pink or blue cake.
