In a world that is expecting millions of bundles of joy yearly, it is only natural that the traditional baby shower gets amped up a notch. For an expecting parent, the birth of their child, and dare we say, especially the first, is such a marked occasion that they deserve more than a few onesies and pacifiers.
While the term "baby shower" may be new, celebrating anticipated life dates back as far as ancient Egypt. Although they often took place after the birth, these rituals celebrated both mom and baby for a successful term and a hopeful future. With the success rates of birth obviously much higher today, our showers have morphed into a way to show a new mom support and that her loved ones will be there for her before and after the baby comes into the great wide world. With people’s creative prowess, showers are becoming grander celebrations and naturally as the stakes are raised, so are the cakes.
It seems only fair that an expectant mom-to-be gets a grand cake at her shower — after all, she is eating for two. Check out some amazing cakes that will make mommy (and baby) very happy!
