So, you have already sent out with baby shower invitations and finalized the favors. For the desserts, you can opt for layered cupcakes or individual ones. Layered ones serve as attractive centerpieces.
For this, you will need cake stands to display the baby shower cakes in a proper manner. Individual cupcake decorating ideas also sound good, wherein you can add variety to the color and decoration of the cakes.
For Boys

Decorating cupcakes is all about using different colored frosting and making figures on top of the cakes. You can use frosting in shades of cream, white, yellow, brown, blue, and green. And for boys, the perfect cupcake ideas for baby shower are making sports related figures, cars, bikes, and animals.
Soccer Cupcake
For a football themed cake, you will need dark (preferably black) and white colored frosting. Get some cupcakes and make traces of the soccer seams on top of the cakes. The next step is filling the white and black frosting to make your cake look like a football.
Baseball Cupcake
Next in the line of sports-inspired cakes, is the baseball cupcake. Fill orange or red colored frosting in one refillable bag and white frosting in another. Evenly coat the top of the cupcakes with white frosting. With the orange/red frosting, make two half circles with the convex sides facing against each other and draw a baseball-like stitching.
