Baby showers have become incredibly popular in the last few years, with the majority of all mums-to-be having one. And while they’re not every pregnant woman's cup of tea, they're a great way for a bunch of friends and family to get together and have fun tasting pooey (aka chocolate) nappies and the like.

But best of all, they're a great reason to make a MASSIVE CAKE.

This cake hasn't held back in terms of frills and fancies. It's laden with intricate icing styles, bows and Tiffany blue colouring - not to mention a pushchair that we can imagine the Duchess of Cambridge herself pushing.

Your cake doesn't have to be circular - or tiered. This pram-shaped bake has a lot going for it and definitely looks good enough to eat.

It's pretty simple to make a 'wonky' cake like this - all you need to do is slice a slanted layer off each sponge and it leaves a really cool finishing effect.

The bottle cake is a classic and very clearly a baby shower bake.

However this baker managed to get the stick to support the post box baffles us. But it looks incredible.
