One of my long – term aspirations in life is to open a cake shop. I love baking and am always intrigued by the different variations that we can do in baking cakes. My skills require quite a lot of tweaking, but I always try to bake cakes on my own for any functions in the family.
Currently an occasion, that has gained a lot of importance in modern times, is celebrating of baby showers. When I was expecting my first baby, I always wanted a daughter since there are umpteen ideas when it is a girl baby, not saying that there is not enough for boy babies. Here are some ideas on baby shower cake for girls and my take on these.
Different Types Of Cakes
Diaper Baby Bag Cake
It is quite natural that, when we think of babies we always think of their diapers. To make a diaper baby bag cake you can use any fancy ideas from your imagination. The colour scheme to be used can be pink or a red .
The icing that is used on these kind of cakes are predominantly, fondant icing. These cakes appear as if they can be just hung on the shoulder and carried off.
Feeding Bottle Cakes
Two even size, shaped bottle cakes can be made on the board. With both the bottles having a different colour scheme. For this cake you can use butter icing for the body of the cake and fondant icing to shape the nipple of the bottle. There is very little of trimming and cutting involved for this cake.
Polka dots on dresses of girls always make this look adorable, polka dots can be coloured on one bottle, this can be carved, either using fondant icing, or a simple solution would be to use coloured gems chocolate.
A cake ideal for a baby girl would be to bake a cake and ice it in the shape of a present. This can either be in the shape of a circle or a rectangle.
Fondant, butter icing and even glace icing can be used for this cake. The top of the cake can be decorated with a big bow that is multi coloured.
Cup cakes are extremely easy to make and delicious to eat. We can make different cupcakes and each designed differently. Pink colour can be used to decorate these cup cakes. Each cup cake having a different design:
One cupcake can be decorated, with a cute girly shoe that is red in colour; this can be made with fondant icing, with a white bow in front. Another cup cake can be iced using cute baby dress designs. Cup cakes can be iced in varied designs such as: hair clips and small earrings.
Girl babies are always, associated with dolls. A doll cake would be the ideal cake to be baked for a mother – to be. The cake can be figured in the shape of a Barbie or two cakes can be used, smaller cake – head of the baby and the larger cake for the body of the baby. Different coloured frostings can be used for this cake. Intricate designed sugar flower decorations and beads can be used to decorate this cake.
To begin with all these cakes would look like extremely elaborate ones, invoving a number of hours of work. As the famous say goes “no pain, no gain”, these cakes are worth all the effort and you can keep your head high, and will be well appreciated for the endeavour.
