Delicious and Easy Baby Shower Cake Recipes

A baby shower is a special time for family and friends to get together and celebrate the excitement of new life. One of the most important aspects of the baby shower is the cake. Of course some people choose to simply visit the bakery and order the usual, boring sheet cake, while others choose to lend a personal touch to the shower and create a one of a kind masterpiece that will be remembered forever.

Creating your own baby shower cake shouldn't require a degree in the culinary arts. What it does require is just a little creativity, a few pans and some basic ingredients used for making any type of cake. You're only limited by your own imagination when it comes to making delicious and easy baby shower cakes.

\"Cake Recipes\"

Stork Cake

Delicious and Easy Baby Shower Cake Recipes


3 boxes cake mix, any flavor

2 4 x 6 inch bread pans (rectangular)

1 6 inch round cake pan

1 9 inch round cake pan

1 large piece of cardboard, covered in colored plastic wrap

Embellishments; licorice, round candies


Prepare cake mixes according to the directions on the box and pour into each cake pan. Allow cakes to cool completely, you may even wish to freeze them as frozen cake is much easier to work with and will be thawed by the time you are done icing and adding the finishing touches.

Slice one of the bread pan cakes in half to create the legs for the stork, and cut the other bread pan cake in half diagonally. Place the largest round cake in the center of the plastic wrapped cardboard, then use one of the diagonal pieces to create the neck, placing the widest end flush against the round cake.

Remove the extra corner that doesn't meet the round one, and place the 6 inch cake here against the cut edge to connect to the head. The widest part of the other diagonal piece should be placed flush against the head to form the stork's beak. Place the legs on the bottom of the body, and ice in white or pale yellow.

The beak and legs can be iced using black, brown, or orange, or bright yellow icing. Use candies for the eyes, licorice for the wing and for a line through the beak. For an extra touch, add a plastic baby from the craft store and wrap in a white cloth, placing the corners of the cloth at the edge of the stork's beak. The cloth can be secured to the cardboard beneath the cake with discreetly placed push pins.

Easy Butterfly Cake


3 boxes of cake mix, any flavor


Food coloring

Heart-shaped cake pan

Muffin tin

Aluminum foil




Prepare the cake mixes according to the directions, using the heart-shaped pan to create the butterfly's wings. If you only have one heart-shaped pan, you'll need to bake the wings separately, allowing time between each to cool. If possible, bake one of the wings the night before to cut down on cooling time.

Cut the cakes from the muffin tin in half and ice with black or dark brown icing for the body of the butterfly. The heart shapes should be placed on either side of the body and colorfully iced. Candy and licorice can be used for eyes and antennae.

More baby shower cake ideas:

- Baby Bunny Cake: Create a pink or blue bunny using round cake pans (or a bunny-shaped one of course), icing, candy drops for the nose and eyes, and square pieces of white gum for the teeth.

- Umbrella Cake: Again using round cake pans, colored icing and some thin licorice for the details, you can easily create a colorful umbrella cake in pink, white, blue, or yellow.

- Baby Bootie Cake: Cupcakes can be cut and shaped into baby booties, iced, and decorated with licorice for the laces.

Homemade Cake Recipes and Wedding Cake Recipes From Scratch

Making wedding cake recipes from scratch is not that difficult. Take it from me. I have been doing this for over 25 years now. The very first of my homemade wedding cakes was a carrot cake recipe and it was from scratch. Homemade wedding cakes are the best. The only time I EVER used a mix was in a high volume situation. It was exclusively the white wedding cake recipe that was slightly time consuming, and the chefs insisted upon my using their mix. If you have ever worked in a professional kitchen then you know how those head chefs can be at times, it is more about saving money and time, but for me it is so much more about quality. I did manage to sneak in all of my homemade fillings though.

Whether you are a professional pastry chef or an amateur baker making homemade wedding cakes for friends and family, these tips may help.

\"Cake Recipes\"


Homemade Cake Recipes and Wedding Cake Recipes From Scratch

  • Try to stick with a simple homemade recipe such as one that does not require a lot of fancy steps. A dump cake recipe is a good choice.
  • I know it does not sound so delicious but dump recipes basically have one requirement and that is that all ingredients get dumped into the bowl at once and mixed. And that is it. What could be easier than that? One of my best and most frequently requested cake is chocolate buttermilk dump recipe.
  • Have all of your ingredients measured out and at room temperature before you start the process of putting it all together.
  • Making a wedding cake if taken in steps is just a matter of multiplying your favorite homemade recipe and baking them off in larger pans.
  • Fill the cake pans 1/2 to 1/3 full. You can fill a pan a little more if using a lighter batter a little less when using a heavier batter. This is the part that you will need to judge as you gain experience.
  • Always grease, flour and put parchment or wax paper along the bottom of the pans.
  • Always let the cakes cool completely before covering and storing. You will need cardboard circles to put under each cake for support when lifting and moving the cakes.
  • You need to decide how many layers your cakes will be before baking, you can bake each layer separate or cut your cakes in half to make two layers. (It depends on how deep your pans are and how much you fill them as to how many layers you get out of each cake.) For wedding cakes I prefer using a two layer cake with one layer of filling because it keeps the cake a little more stable. But you will need to figure out your preferences.

Cake Recipes - Scrumptious Easy Layer Cake

The best thing about this cake, other than it being so easy, is that you can make it to please your taste buds! You really can choose any ingredients that you would like, but these are the ones that I have used in the past:


\"Cake Recipes\"


Cake Recipes - Scrumptious Easy Layer Cake


Cool Whip

Here are some other ideas of things that you may wish to choose from:

Cake: yellow, angel food, chocolate, strawberry, white

Pudding: vanilla, chocolate, strawberry, lemon, pistachio

Fruit: pineapple, cherry pie filling, bananas, peaches, pears (you can use as many fruits as you would like)

Chocolate chips, cinnamon candy, coconut, walnuts (or any other kind of nuts), are also great options.

Now to "build" your new layer cake, all you need to do is, layer the ingredients into a clear glass bowl. The presentation is so beautiful because you can see all the colors & ingredients through the glass! You may want to choose ingredients & colors to match whatever holiday that you are preparing the cake for.

Start with the cake as the first layer - (break into pieces or cut into squares), add fruit, then some pudding, then cool whip. Cake - fruit - pudding - cool whip, etc - until the bowl is almost filled.
You can then top with items like: coconut, nuts, or cherries if you wish.

If you'd like to have colored coconut, just place coconut in a ziplock bag with a few drops of food coloring, and mix until desired color is reached.

An example of a nice holiday display; a large platter with the glass bowl in the center. Add green coconut "grass" around the platter. Then, add a few nicely placed Easter eggs (candy, or the real ones =) around the green grass.

Cake Recipes: Lose Weight While Eating Your Favorite Cakes!

Use alternative ingredients for you recipe
The solution to losing weight is basically controlling your calorie intake. This can most easily be done when consuming ready made foods, such as cakes, by reading the amount of calories on the information sticker on the actual product. Establish that the calories are not exceeding your required daily intake. But if you're willing to make a cake from scratch, it really is easy to bake a cake with very little calories. You do this by substituting the high-fat/calorie ingredients for low-fat/calorie ingredients. So for example, exchange white flour for cake flour. interchange normal oil with a healthier olive oil. Instead of using a whole egg, use two egg whites alternately. Do you understand where this is going?

Using simple methods such as the ones above not only reduce the calorie content of your cakes, but don't diminish the form. The cakes will remain as soft and spongy once baked, but are much healthier. additional things you could replace are to put the cake into non-stick pans, instead of greasing up the cake pan using butter. Try using brown sugar as a substitute of white sugar.

\"Cake Recipes\"

Some advice on how to make the best, healthy chocolate cakes ever!
So now you know how to substitute higher calorie ingredients with lower ones, here are some tips on making a great chocolate cake. Firstly, we would recommend using an easy chocolate cake recipe, one that you're comfortable with and that you could tackle. Make sure you have all the tools and kit you'll need to hand prior to starting.

Cake Recipes: Lose Weight While Eating Your Favorite Cakes!

When preparing the cake mix, make sure that you use a low fat butter, or a margarine for unsurpassed healthy mixes. And again use egg whites rather than whole eggs to keep the calories right down. When putting chocolate into the mixture, we'd suggest using a dark chocolate. The reason being that darker chocolate (the slightly embittered tasting ones) have a higher cocoa content, meaning they contain less fat. If the mixture is not sharp enough, you could try using some cocoa powder to sweeten it up.

When preparing the pan for the cake mixture, make sure you use a non-stick pan. Also try sprinkling a little flour on the pan, this will further prevent the cake from sticking to the pan once it comes out of the oven. This is even more important when using a shaped pan. Ensure that you get into all the little gaps and hollows of the pan with the flour, to you could find some parts of your cake come away with the pan itself. If you don't want to use flour, another healthy options to use a vegetable non-stick spray. They're attainable from most supermarkets.

If you decide to use a layered cake you could try putting reduced fat jello/jelly between the layers. An even better option would be to put sliced fruit, such as strawberries in between the layers.

Not only will your friend and family find such a cake mouthwatering, you are safe in the knowledge that it is a healthier option.

Healthy Birthday cakes
Birthday cakes can be healthy too. By now, hopefully you've understood the additional ingredient method. This can also be used for Birthday Cakes or more special occasions. The cakes become healthy when making the mixture. So when mixing ingredients for a birthday cake, use some imagination and create a sweetened cake mixture, using natural ingredients. Try this one for example. When preparing the mixture, instead of putting a lot of sugar in, replace some of the sugar with a sweet fruit? Examples could be using a banana for instance. Using two bananas would replace quite a bit of sugar, and is all naturally moderate in calories. Try putting some raisins into the mixture. They're naturally tangy and young children enjoy finding them in their cakes. Another option is to use applesauce in the mixture alternatively of oil. Obviously when putting these ingredients into cakes, do the odd 'dip test' to make sure the tang and taste etc are as required.

A Top-Rated Recipe
Here's a great recipe for a healthy cake, which should only take you nearly 30 to 40 minutes to bake.

All you need is an angel cake ready mix and a can of crushed pineapple (and also a bowl, mixer, pan and oven etc)

Instead of using water to mix the angel cake mixer with, empty the crushed pineapple can into the dish and using your mixer, mix until a silky consistency comes about
Pour into a cake pan, preferably a 13 x 9 pan.
Bake in the central tray of your kitchen stove for almost 30-40 minutes, or until the sides of the cake come away from the pan edge
Cut cake into smaller portions, this can serve not far from 12 people, with small portions
Enjoy! This cake only has in effect 0.2 grams of fat, around 145 calories and 34.6g of carbs per serving!

You can adorn the cake if you wish, using icing or frosting, but be mindful of what category you use, as the whole purpose of this cake is to eat healthier.

Losing weight is not only done by eating healthier foods but healthy foods are a staple of a weight loss regime that should include exercise too. In fact exercising is a great way of staying in shape and makes you feel better. So the answer to losing weight seems to be watching what you eat and an active lifestyle. But the point of this feature is to show you that you can still eat your preferred cakes; strawberry cheesecakes, chocolate, frosted or coconut, by ensuring that they're generated with high quality ingredients which are reduced in calories.

Simple Banana Cake Recipe

Here is a simple banana cake recipe using a cake mix that is easy and delicious. It can be baked either in a 9×13-inch pan or in a bundt pan (my preference).

My husband is having a slice with ice cream and just declared it "one of the best" banana cakes ever; hearty praise from a true cake lover!

\"Cake Recipes\"

The purist in me wishes cakes made from scratch with whole wheat flour and other more wholesome ingredients were met with such excitement, but sadly they're not. The savvy realist within me admits that cake mix recipes often turn out better than from scratch cakes. They are more consistent, with better texture, especially when you know how to "doctor them up." And in the final analysis, life is too short to eat anything less than delicious cake.

Simple Banana Cake Recipe

Have I mentioned that I am a huge fan of Anne Byrn, The Cake Mix Doctor? Everything I've ever made from her cookbooks has turned out great, but I've been reluctant to admit it, until I learned that Jamie Lee Curtis recently declared The Cake Mix Doctor her favorite cookbook on the Rachel Ray Show!

This recipe is from The Cake Mix Doctor Returns. I made a few changes to the original recipe. I omitted the additional 1/4 cup of sugar, replaced the 1/2 cup sour cream with plain yogurt, and skipped the 3/4 cup finely chopped pecans to keep it friendly for those who have nut allergies. I also added 2 tablespoons of flour which is a trick my mother learned from her Home Ec teacher decades ago to help cake mix cakes be less crumbly.

Simple Banana Cake Recipe

Serves 16 to 20 or 12 to 16 as a bundt cake

Vegetable oil spray for coating the pan

Flour for dusting the pan

1 cup mashed bananas (from 2 or 3 very ripe bananas)

1 package (18.25 ounces) plain yellow cake mix

2 tablespoons flour

1/4 cup sugar (optional)

3/4 cup vegetable oil

1/2 cup sour cream or plain yogurt

4 large eggs

2 teaspoons pure vanilla

1 cup (6 ounces) miniature chocolate chips

3/4 cup finely chopped pecans (optional)

2 teaspoon confectioners' sugar, for dusting on top

Position an a rack in the center of the oven and preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Lightly mist a 13×9 inch metal cake pan (or bunt pan) with vegetable oil spray. Dust with flour, shake out the excess flour and set the pan aside.

In a large mixing bowl, place the mashed bananas, cake mix,flour, sugar (if using), oil, sour cream, eggs and vanilla. Beat with an electric mixer on low speed until the ingredients are incorporated, about 30 seconds. Stop the mixer and scrape down the sides of the bowl with a rubber spatula. Beat on medium speed until the mixture lightens and is smooth, about 1 1/2 minutes longer. Scrape down the sides of the bowl again, if necessary. Stir in the chocolate chips.( If you are intending to bake the cake in a bundt pan, stir in the pecans too, if you are using them.)

Pour the batter into the prepared cake pan. Smooth out the top with a rubber spatula. If you are baking the cake in a 9×13-inch pan, scatter the pecans (if using) evenly over the top and place the pan in the oven.

Bake the cake until is deeply golden brown on top and the top springs back when lightly pressed with your finger, 43 to 48 minutes (50 to 55 minutes for a bundt cake). Remove the cake from the oven and immediately sift the confectioners sugar over the top so that it melts to form a glaze. Let the cake cook for 20 minutes, then slice and serve while still a little warm. (If you are using a bundt pan, allow it to cool for about 10 minutes, then turn it out of the pan and sprinkle with the sugar.)

Storage: Store this cake, covered, at room temperature for up to three days or for up to one week in the refrigerator.

Cake Decorating Techniques - Icing Your Cake

Icing a cake is probably one of the most challenging yet fun part of baking a cake. It is challenging because it takes skill to produce a smooth finish and this improves with practice; fun because there are so many ways of icing a cake and make it look beautiful.

What types of icing are there?


- Buttercream
- Fondant
- Royal icing
- Ganache
- Glazing
- Meringue

The most common form of icing is buttercream which is also the type that you get out of the ready-made mixes. It is made of butter, confectionery sugar and milk, although some have eggs and salt depending on what you prefer.

Preparing your cake for icing

1. Once the cake is baked, allow it to cool completely over a wire rack before you start icing. If you apply icing on a cake that is not completely cooled, your icing will not turn out well. If you do not have time to do the frosting on the same day, you may refrigerate the cake for a day or two. If you need more time you can also freeze the cake. Make sure you wrap it in cling wrap and then in aluminium foil. In this case, you will need to defrost the cake completely before you start icing. If it is not completely thawed at room temperature, you will notice that your icing will 'sweat'.

2. Make sure the cake is flat. If it is not flat, slice the bottom layer so that it sits flat on the table. Never use the sliced surface for icing.

3. A swivel cake stand would be useful as it enables you to handle your spatula at your best angles.

4. Place strips of wax paper around the borders of your cake so that your icing does not smear the cake board.

Applying the Icing onto your cake

1. You will need to have two layers of icing, the first layer being the 'base' to seal the crumbs. This is just a thin layer of icing. Let it set completely before applying the next layer. You may refrigerate the cake for a day so that it completely seals the crumbs.

2. Make a considerable amount of icing to produce a smooth and even finish. The last thing you want is insufficient icing and you need to make another batch. Worse still, you make do with what you have and produce an uneven finish.

3. If you want to add colour to your icing, use paste colour instead of liquid colour. The latter may change the consistency of your icing.

4. Starting from the middle of the cake, use a large metal spatula to spread the icing towards the edges. Be careful not to scrape up the crumbs.

5. For the sides of the cake you may choose to use a small angled metal spatula. With the spatula vertical, carefully work your way around the cake. Some people prefer to start from the top of the cake, whilst others from the side. It is entirely up to you and how you think it works best for you.

6. The tip is to dip your metal spatula in hot water to produce a smooth finish. Over time with practice, what may take up to an hour may become a 5-minute job to you.

Now that you have covered the cake with frosting, it is up to your imagination to decorate. Piping, fresh flowers, fruits, candy, nuts....have some fun and let your flair and creativity take over!

Banana Cake Recipe

Every family needs a great banana cake recipe, a delicious homemade cake that can be rustled up in no time at all, filling the house with that lovely banana aroma as it bakes.

This banana cake recipe is very simple, and is a great way to make use of those odd bananas that tend to languish in the fruit bowl. Once the skins go brown and spotty, they're just perfect for a recipe like this. Ripe bananas have much more flavor, and their soft texture means they blend into the cake mixture easily.

\"cake Recipe\"

If you have a lot of ripe bananas you could make two banana cakes and freeze one. Another alternative is to freeze some of your ripe bananas. Just pop them, unpeeled, into a freezer bag and keep them frozen until needed. The skins will turn black, but that's simply a reaction to the cold temperature. Your bananas are still fine to use, and you can mash them straight from the freezer, or leave them to thaw first.

If you want to make a banana cake but your bananas aren't fully ripe, there's a cure - peel the bananas and put them in the microwave for a few seconds to soften them. Then use them in the banana cake recipe that follows:

Banana Cake Recipe


225g (8 oz, 2 cups) self-raising (self-rising) flour

100g (4 oz, 1/2 cup) soft margarine or softened butter

175g (6 oz, 3/4 cup) caster (superfine granulated) sugar

2 beaten eggs

3 bananas, peeled

175g (6 oz, 1 cup) dried fruit (use sultanas, raisins, currants, chopped glace cherries, candied peel or a mixture)

Makes a 2lb (900g) cake


  • Pre-heat the oven to gas 4/180C/350F. Oil and base line a 2lb (900g) loaf pan.
  • Put all the ingredients except the dried fruit into a food processor and blend until well mixed.
  • Take the food processor bowl from the base machine, remove the processing blade and stir the dried fruit into the mixture.
  • Spoon the cake mix into the pan and bake for around 1 hr 20 minutes, or until a fine knife blade inserted into the cake comes out clean. Check the cake after 1 hr 10 minutes and if necessary cover with a piece of foil to prevent the top from burning.
  • Leave until cool, then turn out of the tin.
  • This banana cake keeps well in an airtight tin for 2-3 days, or refrigerate it for up to 7 days.

For a banana nut cake, substitute chopped walnuts for some or all of the dried fruit, and scatter some over the top of the cake before baking.

Cupcake Bouquet - A Step-By-Step Guide

One of the cutest cupcake ideas around is the amazing life like cupcake bouquets. These yummy cupcake bouquets are so deceiving they look just like flowers. Cupcake bouquets can be used for any gift giving occasion or a centerpiece for a wedding to display unique wedding cupcake ideas.

Use this step-by-step guide to create your own cupcake bouquet idea surprise:



1.    One Styrofoam Ball with a 5 inch diameter
2.    55 baked mini cupcakes in green cupcake liners
3.    55 toothpicks
4.    One large decorative bowl
5.    One large star tip
6.    Icing in the color of your favorite flower

Step 1: Place Styrofoam ball into the bowl. The bowl should only cover 1/3 of the Styrofoam ball.

Step 2: Place a toothpick in the Styrofoam ball near the bottom above the rim of the bowl.

Step 3: Place a mini cupcake on the toothpick in the middle. Half of the mini cupcake should be above the rim of the decorative bowl and the other half below the rim of the decorative bowl.

Step 4: Using another toothpick, place the next cupcake to the left of the cupcake, from step 3, so they are touching.

Step 5: Continue adding cupcakes to the left around the entire rim of the decorative bowl.

Step 6: Start the next row by placing a toothpick in the Styrofoam above the first row then add a mini cupcake so they are touching. Continue adding mini cupcakes row by row to the left, until the entire Styrofoam ball is covered.

Step 7: Make sure all the cupcakes are touching, there should not any space between the rows. You may adjust the cupcakes if necessary.

Step 8: Using the large star tip start in the middle and swirl your way out to the edge of the cupcake creating a rose pattern.

Tip: When using butter or butter cream icing beware of displaying your cupcake bouquet in a warm climate.  The warm temperature will cause the icing to slide off the cupcakes. As a substitute, solid vegetable shortening can be used however; you will sacrifice the rich buttery flavor.

Have fun!

Dump Cake Recipes - A Dutch Oven is Great For Baking Dump Cakes!

Every year about 20 of us go on an annual camping trip. However, this year I am bringing along a surprise for the group. I have recently purchased a new Dutch oven for cooking an easy and different meal. A person can get tired of eating only hamburgers and hot dogs for a week. My oven comes with a complete, Dutch oven cookbook. As I was going through the cookbook, I found some truly fantastic recipes that I want to try. My favorite is the dump cake recipe. When I first read the name "dump" cake, I was not sure what I was expecting. I certainly was not expecting what the recipe produced.

The recipe was originally created to be cooked by kids. Therefore, making it lives up to its name. The dump cake recipe is quick and easy and can be made with two main ingredients in four easy steps.

\"Cake Recipes\"

Dump cake ingredients:

A can of your favorite fruit

A box of white cake mix

Butter (optional)

Non stick spray (optional)

Four easy steps:

Step 1 - open a can of fruit and empty it into the bottom of your Dutch oven. Do not forget to pack the can opener. You may also want to spray the oven with a non-stick spray. This will help keep the cake from sticking to the bottom of the pan.

Step 2 - poor the box of white cake mix evenly over the fruit. If you desire, you can place slices of butter of top of the cake mix.

Step 3 - place your Dutch oven over the open coals and place some coals on top of the oven.

Step 4 - bake until the cake is golden brown and crust is formed around the edges.

Using a Dutch oven to cook your meals over an open fire takes some skill. You need to understand how and when adding and removing coals will affect the dish that you are cooking. You will want to practice using the oven to make sure you get the feel of how it handles temperature changes. Especially, when making the dump cake recipe. Burning the bottom will ruin the taste. That is the last thing you want while you are camping out.
