Our friends are arranging a baby shower for us. And I think it would be good chance for me to practice baking and decorating a cake. You think is it ok for me to make the cake or should i leave it to our friends who are organizing?

I wouldn't make it. Where I'm from it's considered in extremely poor taste to host a shower for yourself or even to have very much to do with the planning. Ideally, it's pulled off as a surprise for the bride to be or the mother to be. Even though you're definitely not hosting this, it could come across that way. Plus, you should relax and enjoy your shower! icon_smile.gif

I would check with whoever is planning it for you. It sounds like a good idea to make your own cake, but it might be disappointing for those trying to do something nice for you and they may have other plans. Plus, there's always at least a little stress with doing a cake, even if it's yours. Maybe just sit this one out and have fun with the next shower.

Check first that they haven't already organised a cake and wouldn't mind if you did one, if the answer is NO to both then go for it! I love decorating and having a play without the constraints of a clients requests or designs, this sounds like a great opportunity for you 'to have your cake and eat it too!'.

Make sure you aren't gong to stress yourself out too. Good luck with the baby.
