baby shower cupcakes

We've listed some of the best cupcakes recipes for a baby shower in this section for all you "do-it-yourself" folks out there. The cool thing about baby shower cupcakes is that it's totally do-able to do it yourself, much more than taking on a cake project with the perfect frosting, topper, etc. We highly recommend this option if you're doing it yourself, not only because of ease but of cost too.

Using baby shower cupcakes in lieu of the tradition is becoming more popular by the minute. This fun alternative is so much more economical than the traditional cake. What makes them so cute ways you can decorate and display the cupcakes.

If you haven’t checked out any baby themed cupcake wrappers or toppers yet, you may be sold on the cupcake idea when you do. They’re absolutely adorable.

Usually on tiers, of all shapes and sizes, they make a darling display. They can all be frosted and decorated in uniform, or take on a multi-colored scheme with multiple decorations. You can even go as far as creating personalized versions for each guest.
