Baby Shower Cake Inscription Ideas


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."
