Over-the-Top Baby Shower Cakes

Gone are the days of a simple layer cake with the words "Congratulations on Your Bundle of Joy." Baby shower cakes have become a huge element of the event. 

Serving almost as the centerpiece, these works of arts are becoming over-the-top desserts that are almost too pretty to eat.

Check out these crazily creative cakes that'll have you drooling for a slice. From unisex cakes, to cakes that celebrate the pregnant Mom, you'll be amazed by how intricate and realistic looking some of these cakes have become. Fondant may not be tasty to eat, but it sure helps in creative visually impressive baby shower cakes that have guests "oohing and aahing" at it's sight.
