I'm making a "belly" cake for a friend's baby shower, and want to make it more specific to her, but am stuck on a few things. I want to make sure there will be enough to serve everyone. Does anyone know how to figure out the number of servings for an odd shaped cake like this? Secondly, the mom-to-be is a music teacher, and we are wanting to include some sort of "musical" design into the cake if at all possible. The baby is a boy, and the colors we're using for the shower are blue,brown and white. Thanks in advance for any help with this!

It depends on who is cutting the cake on the number of servings... if they are expecting a large amount of guests, you can put the belly on top of a half sheet cake. If you search on here you can find a ton of pictures of beautifully done belly cakes...

secondly, you could put musical notes as the hem on the dress, or make some headphones on the belly like the baby is listening... and notes coming from the headphones. I think no matter what you choose the mom to be will be thrilled you tried your best to incorporate all her loves.. HTH, post pics, we would love to see them!!!

LUV that idea...

I did a belly on a 1/2 sheet because you only get 15 servings max from the belly and boobs. Better to have more than not enough... You could do a brown dress with blue polk-a-dots. Those colors look nice together... You could write, "Goodbye tummy, hello mummy"...But I put "Goodbye belly, hello baby" on the cake, as it was her 2nd and she was a Mom already.
