My sister who had to undergo countless fertility treatments for her 2 children, just found out she is pregnant with a 3rd baby by the simple grace of God (no fertility treatments)!

She asked me to make a cake to bring out at a big family dinner that says something along the lines of "Baby #3 on the way" as a way to break the news to everybody.

Any ideas on something cute & clever?

Check out the Baby shower section under January.

Good luck and congrats on being an auntie-to-be!!

Personally, I avoid anything associated with baby shower cakes that that start with the letter "B". No Boobs, Bellies, Butts, or realistic looking Babies. (Blocks, Blankets, and the word Boy are my only exceptions) Sonogram photos and anything else that came from the Ob-Gyn's office is right out too.

I freely admit I have been scarred for life by the baby shower cakes on Cake Wrecks. Tho even before the discovery of that site I was always creeped out by Baby Belly cakes. I can't think of them as shower cakes so much as "C-Section Reinactment" cakes. icon_surprised.gif

For a "surprise" baby cake, how about a cute looking Jack-In-the-Box toy done in pastels with the little puppet popping out? That could be very cute and appropriate!

HAHA!!! Those belly cakes are creepy!! I've seen them done tastefully, but nonetheless. I like the stork idea.

If you make the belly out of rkt on top of a sheet cake, the belly remains intact and thus no 'c-section'.
