I am making a baby shower cake and I was thinking of doing something along the lines of a book...I'm thinking an open book with booties and something else on one side and maybe a pretty poem or saying about babies on the other side.......does anyone have any ideas on an inscription I could put on there?? I've searched the net and haven't really come up with anything that good. I would like something sweet....you know?? icon_smile.gif

Here's one I used....

"diapers and pins, the fun is about to begin"

not the best saying, but beats the old "pink or blue, we welcome you"

Do you know the sex of the baby? If so, you could do the little saying of what little girls or little boys are made of. (sugar & spice and everything nice versus snips & snails, and Puppy dog tails.)

Sherry that's a cute idea I hadn't thought of that......it's gonna be a boy....that would be nice.....and maybe I could do a photo of a puppy dog and snails or something in the background ? To go with the poem.....I like that idea thank you........Keep em' coming, I need all the help I can get LOL

If they are religious, Jeremiah 1:5 is something nice.

See, that's all I could think of too were religious quotes but actually the parents aren't religious and the grandparents are Jehovah's Witnesses.....so I think I'm gonna steer clear of any religious quotationg icon_smile.gif thank you though

How about that Carpenter's song--Close to you, "on the day that you were born the angels got together and decided to create a dream come true...so they sprinkled moon dust in your hair and gold and starlight in your eyes of blue...Not that you are going to put all of that on the cake.

cute cute.......love these ideas.....I knew I could count on you guys!!!!!!!1

parismom Posted 16 Feb 2006 , 7:59pm

Or how about... It could be any shape cake with smaller cakes on top shaped like babies crawling. Pink and blue diapers...etc. And inthe middle, the words, "Baby Cakes". (I call my daughter baby cakes). Too simple? I don't know, just another idea to float your way.

This is a picture of baby cookies from wilton.com. I saved them just in case I ever needed inspiration on making a baby for a shower etc.

There's only one pretty child in the world, and every mother has it.
J. C. Bridge

Only a baby small
Dropped from the skies
Only a laughing face
Two sunny eyes;
Only two cherry lips,
one chubby nose;
only two little hands
ten little toes.
Matthias Barr

that's really cute steph......I like that

steph95 Posted 17 Feb 2006 , 4:37pm

I received a book while expecting my first that had some quotes in it. We've used them quite a bit for different things while planning baby showers for others in the family.
