Baby shower cakes…
If you hit google images you’ll find all sorts of wonderfully cute, sweet, charming pink and blue cakes to celebrate new babies. From little teddies to big pregnant bellies they all have the ‘awwwwww’ factor. They are all very, very lovely…
they just didn’t quite speak to me personally enough to spark off inspiration.
So, instead of creating a standard baby shower cake I started thinking about the very lovely lady whose shower it was going to be and an image dropped into my head. It was quickly followed by that ‘lightbulb moment’ smile that has my husband rolling his eyes and saying ‘what is it this time?’
This is the image that dropped into my head. (No, there was no alcohol or illicit drugs involved in this thought process, i promise.)
His name is ‘Warpig’ and he is Motorhead’s logo. Motorhead is the soon-to-be knackered, vomit covered, brain melted, run-ragged, totally smitten-on-cloud-9 new mum’s favourite band. And when i say favourite i mean she likes them even more than cake. And she loves cake.
For those who are not familiar with Motorhead, this is ‘Warpig’

I know this is not exactly a traditional baby shower cake, it was however perfect for this ocassion and went down an absolute storm. That’s rock and roll, baby.Share on Facebook
