- If the baby shower has a theme then match your cake saying to that. Keep the colours and design as complimentary as you can and make your message fit with the theme if possible.
- Ensure you don’t make your cake message anything that could be offensive or inappropriate. If the parents aren’t religious then avoid any mention of God. And judge whether a funny saying is suitable by the type of people the baby shower is for. You will know their sense of humour best so base your decision on that.
- Keep it short. Longer sayings on a cake look a bit strange and have to be smaller in order to fit. This in turn will make them more difficult to read. So a simple and concise message on your cake is best.
Hopefully you will have found the ideal saying for a baby shower cake from this selection. But if not then take the ideas and use them as inspiration to write your own cake saying. As long as it’s heartfelt and genuine then the mother to be will appreciate the effort and thought that had gone in to wishing her a wonderful new child.
