Baby Shower Cakes & Give Away

I am helping arrange a baby shower for my good friend "C". This is her fourth child but her first girl. Right now we are trying to get ideas for her cake. We have narrowed down a few potential designs but are having a hard time deciding.

Here is the deal, if you voice your opinion on which cake you like the best, I have a prize waiting for you. When you comment, if you don't have a Blogger account, use the Name/URL option so I know who the winner is. First, off you get to help with C's shower and since I am a crafter, I will make and send the winner a set of eight greeting cards: 2 Just Because/Friendship, 2 Thank You & 4 Birthday. I will need to make them so give me at least a week to get them made. I will mail these internationally, but it will be sent regular mail and I cannot be held responsible for what the postal services does en route. They will also be in English :) Here are a few samples of cards I have made in the past: http://picasaweb.google.com/JessicaAFM/GreetingCards#

And without further ado, here are the cake style choices. Of course they will be altered to fit C's preferences regarding colors and such, but these are examples of design elements we liked.

1. Rectangle cake with onesie.

5. Round critter cake using butterflies instead of ladybug and dragonfly.

I vote for the rectangle with flower babies.

Though I don't think I should qualify for winning a prize on account of being your sister. :D

And the site for the Beatles cake should be familiar...

I vote for #8, I totally love the flower babies!

As an added bonus you could make all of the flowers with baby boys on them and then maybe add a taller pink flower with a baby girl on it just for Izzy.

I like #8 Hello Mommy

I choose the last picture with Hello Mommy, Goodbye Tummy. A variation would be to have 5 flowers (mum and dad and the 3 siblings). You can use their names or human figurines on each flower head. Make a stork to carry in the baby.
