I have to make a baby shower cake for the teacher's in my son's class. They are BOTH pregnant. One is african american and the other one is caucasian. I never really pay attention to those things but in this case i don't know what to do? Should I address the ethnicities by making two babies/pregnant mothers etc? one caucasian the other one african american?
Or do you have any other baby cakes ideas that don;t involve babies or pregnant ladies?

I don't want anybody to get offended one way or the other....

By the way, the cake is for the celebration in the classroom so is not like i can make two cakes for them to take home.

I would just make a general themed cake in teal greens or pale lavender or yellows since you don't know the sex of the babies and you don't really want to bring race into it either...There are many great Baby shower cakes here on CC!

I would just do a cake with a clothesline going around the side with onesies hanging from it, in neutral colors, and then put two pairs of mini gumpaste booties on top, one pair for each mom to save if she wants to icon_biggrin.gif

Teddy bears would be cute too.

yeah, there are tons of things you can:

-green stroller
-baby bottle
- I like the idea of the clothesline

Baby booties or baby Converse shoes look really cute on a cake.

I am a social worker and a cake decorator. Acknowledging ethnicity is very important. Check my website and see my "special deliveries" cake. This was for two co workers, one Caucasian and one African american. I did the two babies one of each ethnicity and the stork, clothsline etc. Everyone loved it. You can also do a silhouette of two pregnant women if you like. Good luck

Thanks everyone! I was thinking of cakes with babies but you are right...there are a lot of cakes that don;t have babies...

Yeah - I would definitely just go with a normal baby shower cake and leave race out of it.
