Baby Shower Cake Recipe and Tips


Most people love a baby shower. It is celebrating the coming of a new baby. I have a baby shower cake recipe that is simple and relieves some of the stress for the hostess in preparing the refreshments. And, it is homemade. I also have included some tips for the shower, after the recipe.

Baby Shower Cake Recipe

Betty Crocker Super Moist Cake Mix (White)
Follow the recipe on the back but use 4 eggs not 3
For the measurement of water use 1/2 water and 1/2 milk
Beat the required amount of time until the cake batter is satin
Bake according to directions using a rectangle pan
Curly Ribbons, Blue, Pink and Yellow
2 cute baby rattles

When the cake is cool, put it on a cake cardboard (you can cut your own cardboard to fit the cake and cover it with freezer paper). Then, ice the cake with a Betty Crocker Cream Cheese Frosting but add a little yellow food coloring to make the icing a pale yellow. Carefully place the curly ribbons on the cake and arrange the two baby rattles at the top of the ribbon. When it is time to cut the cake, take the ribbons and rattles off of the cake and have some of the yellow icing that you made, handy to repair the frosting damage, if any, and serve.

Tips

1. On your invitations, ask your guests to bring 1 item, in addition to their gift, such as travel baby wipes, baby T-shirts, lavender baby wash, or baby shampoo to put into a large basket at the door when they come in. Specify what item they should bring or you will end up with 18 baby rattles and nothing else. You can present this to the mother-to-be as an added bonus and it is very practical. You can get one of those baskets that can later be used as the babys' laundry basket. Decorate it with pretty ribbons.

2. As the Hostess, a great gift to present to the mother-to-be, is a massage. She can use it after she has the baby to relieve the stress of the birth. This is very helpful and worthwhile for the new mother.

3. Buy a couple of CD's that are baby lullabys and play them when the guest start arriving and during the shower, then, present them to the mother-to-be at the end of the shower.

Most of all, have a lot of fun and make a lot of wonderful memories!
