Umbrella Baby Shower Cake

I used Wilton's 18" half round cake pan for this. I made the cake from Duncan Hines Marble Fudge using 3 cake mixes.

I baked the cake for about 65 minutes and let cool completely.

I covered a large wooden cutting board in aluminum foil and wrapped the edge with a coordinating pink ribbon.

I turned the cake out onto the cutting board. When I removed the cake from the pan the one edge refused to leave the pan so I was left with a chunk missing from the upper left side.

I forged ahead anyways and made the frosting with my favorite decorator frosting (1 1/2 C. butter flavor shortening, 1/2 C butter, 2 TBSP Vanilla, 4 TBSP Water, pinch of salt, 2 LBS confectioners sugar.

Mix shortening and butter until well blended, add liquids, mix until smooth, add pinch of salt, mix, add confectioners sugar a little at a time until well blended.

Mix for 5 to 15 minutes on high until it reaches desired consistency.)

I tinted most of the frosting pink, reserving a cup and half to add cocoa to for the brown/chocolate frosting.

I frosted the cake with a crumb coat of pink frosting and let set. I frosted with a final coat and let set, the key is to work the frosting as little as possible to keep it smooth.

I used Whoppers malted milk balls for the bottom edge and piped the lines of the umbrella with the chocolate frosting and a star tip (16 I think).

I still had the dilemma of the chunk missing from the top left so I took some silk flowers I had on hand and arranged them in the empty spot.

Voila, instant beauty! I took a wooden dowel and covered one end of it with plastic wrap to stick in the cake.

I pushed it most of the way through so it wouldn't tip and then covered the rest with chocolate colored satin ribbon and tied a coordinating pink, printed ribbon at the end.

I had a lot of fun making this cake and enjoy telling my friends it was by far the easiest cake I have ever made!

... more cute sprinkle/shower ideas

  • The umbrella baby shower theme fits right in with a "Baby Sprinkle" - a sprinkle is when the mom to be is having her 2nd or 3rd child and may not need as many baby things. So guests bring lighter items such as diapers, wipes, and the everyday baby necessities

  • A gift idea which also double as a baby shower centerpiece, is to flip a small umbrella upside down, fill with baby goodies such as dubber ducks, baby rain boots, a rain hat, lotions, clothes, etc, and place it on the table. Guests will be so impressed!

  • Pour some goldfish crackers into cute blue dishes

  • Float duckies in a galvanized tub, decorative bowl or bird bath. Number the bottom of each ducky with a Sharpie. Have guests pick a duck as they arrive. At the end of the baby shower, draw a number from a bowl - the guest with the same number on the bottom of their duck wins a prize!

  • Place a large upside down umbrella in the corner of the room and fill with cute stuffed animals

  • Find a skinny vase and fill with flowers. Place the vase into a cute, rubber rain boot (kids sized)

  • Place small round candy dishes into baby rain hats for a cute and crafty candy dish.
     
  • Dress a teddy bear or two in shiny yellow rain coats.

  • For a clever umbrella baby shower favor idea, give guests mini bath soaps or bubble bath and attach a little tag saying "From our SHOWER to yours!"

  • Serve some yummy blue punch and float mini rubber duckies in it

  • Place decorative drink umbrellas in the guest's drinks

  • Print our FREE raindrop template (above) onto white or blue card stock and hang from the ceiling with fishing line or hang from an umbrella that has been hung from the ceiling. You can also attach several to a cute ribbon and use as garland.




Below is an umbrella theme idea submitted by one of our creative readers:


"I threw a shower for a dear friend and the invite had an umbrella on it so we decided to give out mini umbrellas that you could take home and decorate yourself. It was cute with the theme and many of the guests had children so it made for a fun project for them when they got home! We ordered the umbrellas from oriental trading co. for a very reasonable price!"
