Flowers, baby footprints, baby rattles, yellow ducks, butterflies and reveal-inspired cupcake designs double as decorative accents and delectable treats at baby shower celebrations. These ideas are simple and inexpensive to create.
Coordinating flower-topped cupcakes are a perfect accent at a baby shower. Roses, daisies or sunflowers made from buttercream frosting add color and festivity to the celebration.
Baby footprints created with fondant and frosting atop cupcakes are a simple way to incorporate an instant baby shower theme. Pre-packaged baby footprint decorations in blue or pink make this cupcake idea even simpler.
Create a baby rattle cupcake by attaching a hollow-centered candy such as a Life Saver to the bottom of a lollipop stick. Decorate the stick with a small coordinating-colored bow, and insert it into the side of a cupcake. Decorate the top of the cupcake with a line of chocolate-covered candies for an instant edible baby rattle cupcake.
Blue frosted cupcakes create a circle of water for a miniature yellow duck to float upon. Add yellow sprinkles for an added pop of color.
Fondant or pre-packaged butterflies are a colorful decorative accent for baby shower cupcakes. Incorporating butterfly decorations into a baby shower celebration adds an element of whimsy to the event.
Reveal the gender of the upcoming baby by filling frosted cupcakes with pink or blue icing. The tops of the cupcakes can be decorated to coordinate with the theme of the baby shower.
