Baby shower cakes are a traditional part of modern baby showers. Inscribing the cake with a cute, clever or unique quote is one way of expressing best wishes to the parents-to-be. Some gender neutral quotes are: "Pink or Blue, May Your Wish Come True," "Diapers and Pins, Now the Fun Begins," "A Star is Born," "Special Delivery, No Return" and "Someone Special, Someone Dear, Someone New is Almost Here."
If the gender of the baby is known, an inscription can be more specific. Inscriptions for a girl include: "Ounce by Ounce, Pound by Pound, Your Baby Girl Will be the Prettiest Around," "Sugar and Spice and Everything Nice" and "Little Princess."
Some ideas for a baby boy are: "Showers of Joy, Come Baby Boy," "Snakes and Snails and Puppy-Dog Tails" and "Little All-Star."
The following inscriptions are suitable if the mother-to-be is carrying twins: "Our Family is Growing by Four Feet," "Double the Diapers, Double the Fun, We Are Having Two Not One," "Bottles, Booties, Diaper Pins, Can You Believe We're Having Twins" and "One, Two, So Much to Do."
A quote specific to adoptive parents can also be used, "Adoption is When A Child Grew in Its Mommy's Heart Instead of Her Tummy."
