50+ Best Baby Shower Cake Messages (Boy, Girl, Funny, Cute)

Something most moms-to-be really look forward to while pregnant is their baby shower, as it’s a beautiful way to celebrate your impending arrival with friends and family.

And what does every party need?

Well as a keen baker myself I might be biased, but the answer has to be a cake of course!

Given how special baby showers are, it can be a lovely idea to include an awesome message or quote on the cake, especially as mom will surely appreciate this touch.

But what should you actually say on a baby shower cake?

It it better for the message to be funny, cute or serious, and what about if you want to tailor it to a boy, girl or even twins?

Let’s find out.

What To Say On A Baby Shower Cake?

There are no hard and fast rules as to what message you should put on a baby shower cake, so it’s often up to the person who plans the event to decide.

Some things you might want to consider are:

  • Will the mom-to-be prefer something traditional, or would a funny message be more appropriate.
  • If you know the gender, do you want to tailor the message for a boy or girl, or would it be better to go with a general message that isn’t gender-specific?
  • How much space do you have to work with, which might be directly linked to how many people are going to the event. If you have only a small amount of room to play with, then you might have to choose one of the shorter messages below.
