Boy-themed cakes can have cute decorations like cars, balls, sugar balloons, and bears. Even blue cartoonish angels sitting on each tier.

The mom-to-be should have a say on what particular shade of blue will be the best to use. But if she is still overwhelmed with the fact she is having a baby, then let the dad take over and decide!

And if you would like to give your guests a piece of your baby shower cake, why not a cake made of lots of small cupcakes? Of course, each cupcake should have blue frosted icing on top!
