The 22 Cutest Baby Shower Cakes and Diaper Cakes

I love cakes—I just can’t get enough of them. And I can’t resist a beautiful, cute, adorable baby shower cake. A baby shower is never complete without a proper cake!

The being said, even if you know that the mother has a baby shower cake ready, feel free to bring one as well. There is no better way to welcome the new baby than with a diaper cake. And you know the mother will appreciate the extra diapers. They’ll come in handy once the baby arrives.
