Sweets for the Sweet – Delectable Treats For Any Baby Shower

Although the focus of any baby shower is on the new mommy-to-be, you must admit that the sweets usually come in second place. After all, who can resist celebrating the birth of a new baby with some sweets for the sweet?

A baby shower is a perfect time to get creative and pull out all the stops, setting up a delicious dessert table filled with all sorts of yummy treats. Follow a theme, color or just have lots of assorted goodies to whet all palates. And go ahead and indulge that sweet tooth, especially if you are eating for two!


Here are some delectable treats that will make any baby shower special. Plus, they look as beautiful as they taste:

Assemble single serving pies in a jar: individualized containers filled with crust, fruit filling and crumbles. Top these with personalized tags and ribbons for extra adorableness. Eat them there or take them home.

Get back to nature with a forest filled with edible mushrooms and acorn cookies. Make mushrooms with mini and regular-sized marshmallows and apple slices. The nutty look-alikes can be created with chocolate and butterscotch candies affixed with icing to a wafer cookie. Lay them out on a bed of grass or on a wooden board surrounded by colorful fall leaves or flower petals, bringing the outdoors inside.

Flavor is bursting with piles of mini lemon meringue pies, fresh berry tarts and pistachio macaroons. 


If you’re having a winter wonderland theme, be sure to serve white chocolate dipped pretzels, a coconut topped cake and some powdered sugar cookies.

Surprise your guests with this amazing rainbow cake that has a secret inside. When you cut into this white frosted miracle get ready for the oohs and ahhs over what’s inside.

Everyone loves to take home something sweet, so set up a fun candy bar. Fill assorted bowls and jars with gummies, jelly beans, lollipops and suckers so everyone can mix and match their favorites. Provide pretty bags or fun containers that match your party theme and can be filled to go.
