Cupcakes Ideas For Baby Shower

If you are planning a baby shower, then you know that it can be hard to come up with ideas for food. You want something cute and yummy, but also easy to make. As long as you have the right supplies on hand and some time to spare – these cupcake ideas are perfect!

Baby Carriage Cupcakes

  • Cupcakes can be decorated to look like a baby carriage.
  • Use frosting to make the carriage.
  • Use candy to make the wheels (brown or white chocolate, or gumdrops).
  • Use a toothpick for the umbrella.
  • Use a straw for the handle of the umbrella.
  • Use a toothpick for the handle of the carriage (bamboo skewer, bamboo chopstick).

Girl or Boy? Cupcakes

You may want to make cupcakes that are gender neutral colors. This way, you can use either pink or blue frosting for the baby carriage cupcakes. You might also consider making a different color for the baby’s outfit so that your guests can tell whether it’s a boy or girl without looking at the table!

Yellow or Pink Cupcake Pacifier

Nursery Rhyme Cupcakes

  • Use a nursery rhyme for the cupcake names.
  • You could use a nursery rhyme as a theme for your party.
  • You could have a different nursery rhyme for each cupcake flavor (strawberry, vanilla, chocolate).

It’s a white Cupcake!

  • Make a white cupcake with vanilla frosting.
  • Decorate with baby blue sprinkles.
  • Add baby blue or pink candy melt hearts on top.
  • Add a baby blue or pink candy melt pacifier to the top of the cupcake.

Start Cupcakes with Stork Picks

Start your cupcakes with stork picks, which are a great way to decorate the cupcakes and hold baby shower favors and games.

Mommy Cupcake and Baby Cupcake

Mommy and baby cupcakes are a great way to celebrate the mommy-to-be. You can make them any size you like, but it’s best to make them the same size so they look balanced on the plate. Use different colors of frosting to differentiate between the two, and top with a candy pacifier or baby bootie!

To make these cupcakes:

  • Using an icing bag fitted with a large round tip (Ateco #849), pipe a small mound of frosting onto each cupcake, leaving about ¼ inch border around edges. Hold bag at an angle about 1 inch above surface of cake and pipe until mound rises about ¼ inch above edge of cake. Or use buttercream frosting and just spread evenly over tops using metal spatula or back side of tines from wooden spoon (this method will yield thinner layer).
  • Chill 30 minutes before decorating as directed in steps 3–4 below; otherwise frosting may be too soft for piping details later on.

  • Gender Reveal Party Cupcakes

Years ago when I was expecting my son, I had his gender reveal party at an ice cream shop that served cupcakes in the shape of ice cream cones (they were chocolate cake with buttercream frosting). The cupcake was a perfect way for everyone to celebrate our big news with treats that were suitable for both genders; after all, no one wants their baby shower ruined by someone eating only pink frosting or blue frosting!

These next cupcakes are excellent for a girl themed baby shower because they have a few little touches which the other cupcakes don’t have. The first is of course the pink coloured theme.

The pink buttercream and pink ribbon is great especially if you have a little princess on the way, you want to make sure that the cupcakes are as precious as her! The pink frosting and ribbon makes the cupcakes look elegant. The fondant crown and sprinkles add the finishing touch.
