A baby shower is a happy event, perfect for lighthearted, fun entertaining. The creative cakes my friends baked for my showers still stand out in my memory. These fun baby cakes doubled as both centerpiece and dessert.

If you enjoy baking, I recommend you try to make one yourself. Some can be very simple if you purchase the decorations from one of the specialty companies in the list below. And even if you're not ambitious enough to bake one yourself, you might find an idea to bring to your local bakery.
