The very easiest Baby Shower Cake; is the one you order.
- Check your local bakery, super market, or any other area. Ordering the cake is also your most expensive option.
If you want to make your own cake
- GHIRARDELLI, Pillsbury, Betty Crocker, or just about any box mix will do. For frosting, go with something, “whipped”; they taste the closest to homemade frosting.
- Use jelly, mousse, or pudding in between layers to give your cake something extra special.
- If you decide to go with a recipe from scratch, you shouldn’t have any trouble finding one. Chances are a relative or friend has a good one to share.
- The world-wide-web, and recipe books are also full of ideas. Eagle Brand is a great site for cake and dessert ideas
- Make decorations with candy molds. Pour melted candy into molds, allow molds to harden. Once the molds are set, pop ‘um out for some easy cake decorating.
- You can buy candy molds and supplies at most craft stores, online, or even at Target and Wal Mart.
- Fondant sheets can also be purchased; these are sugar sheets that give cakes a smooth, flawless appearance. However, fondant offers lots of options in decorating too. You can purchase cutouts and molding tools that are really easy to use!
- Give yourself some extra time to practice if you want to use fondant cake-decorating, it takes some getting used to.
Shoppinghevanet.com is a great on line site for baking and baby shower cake decorating supplies.
