Baby Shower Cakes and Cupcakes

Baby shower cakes serve as the centerpiece for any baby shower.

Choose a cake that best fits the personality of the expectant parent(s) or one that goes along with the theme of the shower. You can also make baby shower cupcakes for an easier handheld dessert option.

Use the ideas below as inspiration to find your perfect baby shower dessert!

Baby Shower Cakes for Girls

Traditionally, pink cakes are for baby girls and and blue cakes are for baby boys. These days anything goes! There is no reason to be held back by gender roles.

That being said, if the expectant parent loves classic pink girly things (check their registry to confirm), one of these cakes would be perfect.
