Ok so someone asks you to do them a baby shower cake, they say to you do what ever you like im really not bothered what you do....and she doesnt know the sex of the baby...what kind of thing would you do?
When is it for? Is it a fall baby shower? You can do seasonal ideas. There was a ridiculously cute baby in a pumpkin cake a few weeks ago... Is there a theme to the babies room? If not maybe just go with the mom's interests?
I just tend to think about what the mother might like, such as a baby theme or a belly or thongs more to do with adults. Then I just look around for elements of cakes I like and see if I can fit that in somewhere.
