Baby shower is a party organized by a family member or close friend for the expectant mother in order to celebrate the impending arrival of her baby. It is a happy occasion wherein the mom-to-be is showered with gifts, blessings and lots of love by her family and friends.
There are many things like invitations, decorations, cake, baby shower favors, etc., that are required to be done in order to make this event a huge success. Hence, as a responsible host one cannot overlook them and has to plan everything well and beforehand.
The most important element of a baby shower party that highlights the entire event is the baby shower cake. But if you are planning to do something different this time, in place of the typical cake try keeping cute and delicious baby shower cupcakes. These are a great alternative to a large decorated sheet baby shower cake.

Cupcakes are versatile and can serve as a lovely centerpiece when decorated creatively. Here are some simple yet innovative baby shower cupcake ideas for you.
Daisy Treats Mini Cupcakes
These are cute mini cupcakes decorated with bite sized colorful treats. After baking and cooling the cupcakes, ice them with a butter cream icing.
Use a decorating bag with tip 32 to pipe swirl the cream on the top of the cupcake. Sprinkle the cupcakes with a dash of colorful treats and then place the cupcakes carefully on the stand or any other serving plate.
Baby Rattles Cupcakes
To transform your cupcakes into baby rattles, gather lollipop sticks, gumdrops, and ribbon. Tie small ribbon bows onto the lollipop sticks, then place a large gumdrop at the bottom of each stick.
Now make a hole at the side of the cupcake using a toothpick for putting the lollipop handle in to it. Finally take the lollipop stick and position it into the hole of the cupcake.

Ice Cream Cone Cupcakes
Fill a wafer ice cream cone halfway with candies and cover cupcakes with frosting. Place the cupcake on the cone, icing side down, and add another dollop of frosting on top.
Now place a mini cupcake over it and holding the cone in your hand cover the entire cupcake surface with the frosting. Decorate the cone by sprinkling some colorful treats.
Soft Serve Swirl Cupcakes
After baking and cooling the cupcakes, swirl buttercream frosting on the tops. Drizzle with chocolate sprinkles and top with a cherry. Insert a stick candy and repeat for the remaining cupcakes.
