As a man, I’ve never been to a baby shower. However I do know that one thing is essential – cake. I’ve scoured the web to find the best handmade baby shower cakes available in the UK.
New Cakes offer eight elegant baby shower cakes that look simply stunning, including this one featuring a teddy bear. Cakes can be fully personalised with decorations, the type of sponge, and the flavour of cream. Prices are on the more expensive side and range from £80-£110. However next-day delivery is available if ordered by 1pm. Each cake will serve 20-25 people, though a larger size can be ordered for an additional £15 that will serve 30-35.
This handmade vanilla celebration cake from Clam’s Cakes looks unbelievably good. Topped with vanilla buttercream and decorated by hand, I’m sure this would go down a treat at any baby shower. It’s only £25 (or slightly more with a box) and is also available as a chocolate cake.
This delightful offering from The Brilliant Bakers is sure to brighten up any baby shower. The top 8″ cake can be either vanilla, chocolate, or red velvet. 32 mouth-watering cupcakes are included, which can be either vanilla or chocolate (or half and half). Extra cupcakes can also be ordered if required, as well as candles and sparklers. At £95, it’s not cheap, but it’s a premium baby shower cake that would be much appreciated.
This decadent, rich chocolate cake from Patisserie Valerie would serve any baby shower well. If the mum-to-be is a chocolate lover, what could be better? With rich chocolate cream and light vanilla sponge, complete with white chocolate curls topped with white chocolate shavings and a dark chocolate flower. At 8 inches, it will serve 8-10 people and costs £33. Scrumptious.
Famous for their tea rooms, this celebration cake from Bettys would make an excellent baby shower cake. Featuring a teddy bear that can be personalised, it’s available as a Genoese or chocolate Genoese sponge, or a fruit cake. It comes in sizes of 6, 8 or 10 inches and orders for delivery can be placed over the phone. Prices start at £56.
M&S Baby Shower Cakes
These aren’t just celebration cakes, these are M&S celebration cakes… Each cake can be personalised and can be picked up from an M&S store within seven days. I’ve selected a few of my favourites that look particularly tasty.
This buttons and bunting cake would be a great choice for any baby shower. Two delicious tiers of all-butter sponge with soft icing will serve 20 and only set you back £40. It’s also available in pink or blue. Happy days.
Taste the rainbow. I love the idea of this rainbow sponge celebration cake, with lots of tasty layers. If you’d like a colourful treat for a baby shower, this one’s for you. It’ll serve 32 people and costs just £45. My mouth is watering…
Another one for chocolate lovers. This rich chocolate cake is filled with a salted caramel and chocolate ganache, complete with truffles. It’ll serve 28 and is £55. I’m tempted to get this for my next birthday. The truffles alone look incredible.
The full M&S range featuring 72 (yes, 72!) personalised cakes is worth checking out.
