Cupcake Cakes For Baby Shower

Cupcake cakes are making a comeback, and they’re better than ever. For baby shower desserts, you can use cupcakes in towers to make the perfect centerpiece for your dessert table. Here are some ideas for creating a cupcake tower for your next baby shower:

cupcake cakes for baby shower

Cupcake cakes are the perfect way to incorporate cupcakes into your baby shower. Cupcakes can be decorated to look like a stroller, carriage, crib or plush animals.

  • Baby: Choose a color scheme that matches the baby’s nursery colors and place the cupcakes in columns on top of each other for an adorable 3D effect.
  • Stroller: Use small white boxes as wheels for the stroller so that it looks like there are wheels under the cupcake cake (this works best with square-shaped cakes).
  • Carriage: Use small brown boxes as wheels for this carriage and fill them with more frosting than usual so they can be pushed out easily when you’re ready to serve them up!

cupcakes baby shower decorations

To make cupcakes baby shower decorations, you will need:

  • cupcakes (make sure they match the theme of your baby shower)
  • frosting (use matching colors and flavors)
  • sprinkles (to match the theme of your baby shower)

To assemble, place one layer on top of another and secure with toothpicks. If you want to create a wall with them, place them vertically in a row instead. You can also use small cups filled with water or sand to keep the layers in place while they are drying. Add any type of candy or food item on top before serving!

cupcakes for baby shower boy

Baby shower cupcakes are a must-have at any baby shower, especially if you’re having a boy. These cakes are so popular that they can be found in almost any shape and form, which means that you have plenty of options to choose from!

If the mother-to-be has a favorite color or theme for the party, then it’s important to find baby shower cupcake decorations that match those preferences. Cupcake towers are always a great option because they look elegant when displayed at parties and diners alike. You can even make your own using cardboard tubes or PVC pipes wrapped in paper for support. Then use frosting as glue to attach decorations such as streamers and balloons!

You can also decorate cupcakes with edible flower petals: simply cut one end off each petal so there will be enough room for it not only on top but also around each side of your cake’s surface area before sticking them down onto our base layer first then adding sprinkles afterwards (this prevents them from falling off after baking).

A clever way to jazz up your cupcakes is by stuffing them with yummy candies.

You can add mini Reese’s peanut butter cups, Rolos, Hershey’s Kisses, mint patties, toffee pieces, etc – to the inside of cupcakes just before baking – just gently push the candy down into the batter after pouring them into the pans.
