Well we finished our first Theme Baby Shower Cake post and we had so many more great photos and ideas that we had to do another one. So here it is... 10 more of our favorite baby shower cakes by theme. We've tried to include links to the instructions for the creations and give photo credit where appropriate. People are truly amazing when it comes to creating spectacular edible desserts (as well as baby diaper cakes, but I'm focusing on the edible ones here) and their creativity never ceases to amaze me.
We hope you find some inspiration when you are planning your next baby shower! And if you happen to use any of these ideas, have a piece of cake for us too!
#1) Moon & Stars Cake Ideas
Sometimes it can be difficult to find moon and star themed items for baby showers online, but as you can see by the photo above, I've found a great resource. Just following this link for Moon and Stars Baby Shower Supplies. They have everything from tableware including plates, napkins, cups and more with a moon/star theme to party favors such as moon shaped soaps to baby shower gifts such as a moon and stars newborn baby layette set.
#2) Jungle & Safari Cake Ideas
In the last six months, we've seen a big jump in jungle or safari animal themes. If you crate a cake with just one animal, like a lion and then have a bunch of other animals on the cupcakes, we think that would be a hit. Here are some other fun ideas we've seen and 1-2 that you can do yourself!
From cakes to brownies to cupcakes, find detailed instructions on how to make and decorate lions and tigers and bears - OH MY! Just click here for Wilton's huge list of jungle themed ideas.
How To Make and Decorate a Wildlife Safari Cake
This fully coordinated Funfari jungle animal theme is the perfect addition to a safari shower (see the Funfari invitation on the first cake). You'll find tableware, invitations, favors, and decorations that are all color coordinated. Whether you decide to use this pattern or another as inspiration for your shower, be sure to coordinate your cake color scheme to the pattern of the tableware!

#3) Baby Block Cakes
Baby block cakes are fairly easy to create yourself because you can just use standard 8" or 9" square pans and create a square layer cake. Cut it into 4 smaller squares to make 4 small pieces that can be easily decorated to look like blocks. Another idea is to make one gigantic block by making 5 layers of cake in 9" x 9" x 2" pans.

#5) Baby Carriage/Pram/Buggy Examples
