You’ve got the baby shower games and the tiny little sandwiches, but have you considered what desserts you’ll serve? In addition to honoring the new mom-to-be and her little one, the best part of throwing a baby shower is deciding on the perfect desserts that you’ll serve to your friends and loved ones.
If you’re looking for some ideas, you’ve come to the right place. We’ve gathered up some absolutely adorable baby shower desserts and some tips on helping you decide.
How to Choose a Dessert for a Baby Shower
The key to choosing the perfect dessert for a baby shower is to pick things that are easy to serve and easy to eat. Mini desserts just so happen to fit the bill. Not only are they super easy to serve, but they’re also easy for your guests to grab and go. Plus, they’ll entice your guests to fill up their plates with multiple options. After all, who wouldn’t want to sample a bite of all the desserts?
When choosing the desserts, be sure to offer an array of sweet treats for your guests. Choose something chocolatey for the chocolate lovers. Then, offer something a bit more tart, such as raspberry-flavored cupcakes or lemon bars. Offer at least three or four options, ideally more. That way, guests can pick and choose what they like.
Of course, it’s a good idea to ask guests about their food allergies before picking your desserts. If you know someone is allergic to peanuts, for example, you know you can avoid those chocolate peanut butter cups and pick something more allergy-friendly for your guests.
