It's obviously the cake.

And these amazingly impressive baby shower cakes, well, they take the cake.

Baby Bunny

De la Crème Creative Studio

When I say that some cakes are too adorable to eat, I rarely actually mean it. Cake is delicious. But this bunny IS too cute to eat! Maybe I can just keep it.

Sprinkle Explosion

What better way to show your excitement for the new baby than with a cake completely coated in rainbow sprinkles?

Winnie-the-Pooh

100 Layer Cakelet

The whole gang from the Hundred Acre Wood got together to make this cake extra special. I call Eeyore.

Little Lamb

100 Layer Cakelet

While we're on the subject of adorable baby animals... This lamb is saying, "Hey guys! Did you know there's a baby on the way? She's going to be really cute. Have some cake to celebrate!"

Royal Baby

De la Crème Creative Studio

You know that baby is going to be treated like royalty, so this is a perfect cake. These new parents can't wait to crown their little king!

Woodland Creature Cake

Style Me Pretty

This new baby is going to get the Cinderella treatment (the becoming best friends with woodland creatures and having them help her get dressed in the morning part, not the evil stepsisters or Prince Charming part).

Origami Cake

Piccoli Elfi

This super classy cake comes complete with origami cranes on top. They'll bring peace and happiness to the entire new family!

Twinkle Twinkle Little Star

Events By Kristin

Get lost in baby dreams with this adorable starry cake. This cake has a double meaning too — that baby is going to be a star!

Proper

This cake celebrates the one who really deserves the praise: the new mom-to-be. She's doing 100 percent of the work; she deserves 100 percent of the cake.

Bird House

De la Crème Creative Studio

This bird family is about to have a new chick in the house! And you better believe that new baby is going to ruffle some feathers.

This adorable owl is asking the important question: Hoo is it?! This new baby is a mystery, and we can't wait to find out hoo he or she is!

A Whale of a Time

Domestic Fashionista

Whales are a popular aesthetic for baby showers and for good reason. They're adorable. ...There may be another reason, but I don't know what it is. The fact that they're so cute is reason enough for me.

Beatrix Potter

Steel Penny Cakes

Beatrix Potter's magical world of Peter Rabbit makes for an absolutely gorgeous (and literary!) baby shower cake. Her stories are timeless classics that will never go out of style.

Bookish Baby Shower

Write Meg

While we're having our literary cake and eating it too, this book cake is just precious. Eating a cake version of Goodnight Moon isn't exactly the same as reading it, but it tastes much better.

Hot Air Balloons

Cake Central

Take to the skies with this hot air balloon cake! The baby's not here yet, so it's still OK to have your head in the clouds. Once that little bundle of joy and screams is born, though, it's go-time.

Zoo Animals

This is the perfect cake for a baby shower because that house is about to be a zoo. An adorable, snot-filled zoo.

Pink Ombré

I'm not trying to be mean or anything, but... ...this cake might be cuter than the baby. You don't know. It could happen. That's the risk you take when you have a cake this amazing.

My Deer

Peggy Does Cake

The wood grain on this cake is so realistic I think I'd be a little disappointed if it didn't actually taste like bark. Just kidding, that would be awful.

Pink or Blue, We Love You!

Sugar Belle Cakery

What about green? Purple? Taupe? These people need to broaden their horizons.

Coco Rose Cake

This coconut cake topped with incredible fondant roses is so pretty it might make the pregnant mom-to-be weep with hormone-fueled tears. Worth it.

Mustachioed Mister

Pinterest

If your cake doesn't have suspenders and a mustache, you're doing it wrong. This is perhaps the only cake I've ever seen that can be described as "dapper," and I love it.

Duckie Love

Cake Wrecks

Little baby "S" is entering a world full of love, laughter and rubber duckies. Lucky her.

Pretty Bird

This is an adorable cake, but make sure you don't use actual baby footprints for the design. That's not sanitary.

Cutie Cake Pops
