Avoid the obvious when choosing baby shower cake inscriptions. By the time the shower arrives, the mother-to-be has heard, "Congratulations!" enough. Use creative or funny sayings to convey celebratory sentiments. Match the inscription to the temperament and sense of humor of the guest of honor.
Use humorous sayings on the cake to lighten up the mood at a baby shower. For a cake with a rubber duck theme, use "Duck! The baby's coming!" or decorate a cake with miniature cinnamon roll pastries and inscribe it with: "Bun in the oven." Cakes with an image of a pregnant woman can use humorous phrases alluding to the shape of the mother: "Goodbye tummy, hello mummy!" Look for candy clock shapes for decorating the cake, and use a message such as: "Congratulations on your new alarm clock!" For a cake for twins, try: "Double the pleasure, double the fun!"
Note the sacred function of motherhood and honor the mother-to-be's gift from God with a spiritual inscription on the cake. For a shower cake with a rain cloud, inscribe it with: "God showers mothers with the blessing of children." For a non-themed cake, write a blessing such as: "God bless you and your little bundle of joy," "A baby is God's greatest gift," "All babies are gifts from God" or "Thank you God, for bringing this little joy."
For a traditional baby shower cake, opt for one of these time-honored phrases often seen on shower cakes and cards: "It's a boy!" or "It's a girl!" Other non-themed cake inscription ideas include: "Mommy's little boy" or "Mommy's little girl." Use a star design on the cake and have it inscribed with "A star is born."
