Looking for an original spin on baby shower cakes? Pictures of sleepy baby faces, diapers and sheep may come to mind, but we're loving this simple baby rattle cake from Howdini. Customize baby shower cupcakes to match the baby's nursery colors by coloring the frosting.
Cake decorating expert Liv Hansen shares this fun baby shower cake recipe, which is made with standard cupcakes, frosting, pastry bags, lollipop sticks and gum drops. Decorate the rattles with the baby's name or easy-to-draw symbols like flowers, ducks and stars.
