Getting ready for a baby shower takes quite a bit of organization and planning. First, there's deciding when and where the festivities will take place, who to invite, what style of invitations to buy, and which baby shower cake would best fit the theme of the day.

Next, you'll have to figure out how to decorate for the shower, what type of food and drinks should be served, and which kind of favors to make for the guests.

Of course, there's also the games to organize and buying all of the prizes for the lucky winners. With so many different details to remember and take care of, often times a baby shower can involve as much work as planning a wedding or bridal shower!

The baby shower cake is one of the most important aspects of the entire shower. You'll want to use some imagination and find a unique, rather than plain, ordinary cake you'd find in the bakery department of your local grocery store.

Set aside plenty of time to search for that one special cake that will perfectly match the shower's theme, and also be one the mother-to-be will love. If you're having a hard time locating one that meets all of your criteria, a simple solution is to make your own, or enlist the help of a friend.

By handling the details of the cake yourself, you're sure to have it turn out just the way you envisioned, as a wonderful addition to an already exciting event.

You'll want to set aside plenty of time to bake and decorate the cake, having it done early enough to attend to other last-minute details, but not too soon that it dries out or becomes stale. Find a safe, cool, dry place to store the cake in an airtight covered container.

Using the internet, you'll be able to find just about every type of cake recipe you could ever imagine. Simply do an online search, and in a matter of minutes you'll have plenty of sites to browse through, and countless, delicious recipes to choose from.
