I can't bake a baby shower cake, can I?

Baking Your Own Baby Shower Cake

Just for a minute, think about going “old school” for your friend's baby shower. You're probably thinking, what the heck does that mean? No, it doesn't mean everybody is going to smoke in the living room. We're not in the 1970s anymore. It just means, why not bake your own cake. Okay, okay, settle down. It's not completely unheard of. The baby shower cake, besides the baby shower favors, baby shower gifts and baby shower decorations, can really add something to the party.

If you think you can't read on without hyperventilating, please put the paper bag down. Just think how proud and amazed (and possibly disbelieving) your friends will be when you show up with a made-from-scratch baby shower cake.

To make it a little less intimidating, follow these guidelines:

1) Buy a cookbook, or search the Internet for a good cake recipe.

2) Go shopping for a cute baby-themed cake pan.

3) Make sure you have all of the ingredients before you get started.

4) Read the directions all the way through before getting started.

5) Locate key items in your kitchen—including something called the “oven”. Turn it to the temperature required while you're mixing the ingredients.

6) Grease the pan.

7) Pour the mixture into the pan and bake.

Once the cake is done and safely out of the pan (and now that your confidence is up), get creative and decorate it yourself!
