Baby showers are sweet and sentimental gatherings for the mom-to-be and her guests. Delectable desserts and sweet treats are usually the highlight of a baby shower brunch or luncheon. From cute cupcakes to adorable tartlets, we’ve got the perfect dessert ideas for your special baby shower.

Buttercream Filled Cupcakes: You can’t go wrong with sweet, decorative cupcakes filled with fluffy buttercream for a light dessert after lunch. Top the cupcakes with light pink or blue buttercream to match the baby’s gender.

Cut-Out Cookies: Cut-outs give you plenty of room for creative shapes and colors. Onesies, rattles, bottles, little feet and pacifiers are some popular baby shower cut-out ideas!

Lemon Tartlets: These zingy citrus treats are both bite-size and adorable for a shower! Bright yellow is a perfect neutral color for a baby shower of any gender or a surprise reveal. 

Mini Cheesecakes: Petite cheesecakes add the perfect treat to your baby shower dessert display. You can add seasonal flavors or a dollop of whipped cream with fruit for a pop of color. 

Confetti Cake: You can never go wrong with a traditional cake at a shower. A confetti-filled cake with fun, colorful frosting to match your shower’s theme will add the perfect touch to your dessert array.

Cake Pops: Cake pops are cute and bite-sized, so your guests can enjoy other desserts too! Pastel pink and blue frosting with white ball sprinkles make them a darling addition to your shower’s spread.

Ice Cream Bar: Ice cream pairs well with just about any sweet on your table. Serve ice cream with a toppings bar to give your guests the chance to make their own sundaes!
