Hey all!! My friend is pregnant and having her baby shower in May. I've been asked to do the cake, for 85-100 people. She will find out in March what the gender is, so at this point that's unknown. I'm leaning toward a series of smaller (diaper bag, shopping bag type) cakes with fondant baby shoes and maybe some white chocolate baby bottle and pacifiers, but I haven't quite got the idea nailed down. What are your thoughts?
There are soooooo many wonderful ideas in the gallery of this site. You have time to check them out.
I have been checking them out and I have some ideas from the galleries, but I'm having trouble nailing down all the elements I'd like to do for a cake that big.
What about a larger cake shaped like a Baby Gift Bag that has the elements "spilling" out of it? Just a thought. You could also do a stacked cake with the elements surrounding the tiers and have the baby shoes sitting on top.
I have done some large showers as a coordinator but the largest was 45 people...85 to 100...wow...that's HUGE!
Yes, 100 people is a lot, but she's from a large, extended Italian family and this is a great grandchild, etc. etc. That's why I'm thinking several smaller cakes in various shapes. I love that idea of the baby gift bag!! Maybe that and a diaper bag cake... what else?
