Throwing a baby shower can sometimes be on the expensive side, but it doesn’t have to be. Buying a store-bought cake (like this Pick ‘n Pay one for R40) is an easy way to cut down costs — all you need to do is style it up, especially if you’re going for a budget-friendly theme like a pyjama party with your friends.

  1. First of all, remove all packaging, and take the cake out of the polystyrene.
  2. Re-plate your cake onto a pretty dish or your favourite cake stand.
  3. Use fresh flowers and decorate your stand and cake, the one item every baby shower needs

(And when someone asks you for the cake recipe, just give them a wink!)
