Throwing an afternoon baby shower can leave hosts wondering what to serve your guests. A dessert-only menu is a cute way to provide snacks without going overboard. Desserts are also easy to customize, whether you’re using blue, pink, yellow or following specific a theme.
Add these pastel bite-sized treats to your baby shower menu for a sweet dessert table:
- Lemon cake
- Strawberry mousse
- Matcha ice cream
- Coconut macaroons
- Red velvet cupcakes
- Strawberry shortbread
- Pies: blueberry, cherry, apple, chocolate, pumpkin
- Peach cobbler
- Mini donuts
- Chocolate-dipped Oreos
- Sugar cookies
- Marshmallow pops
- Chocolate-covered strawberries
- Linzer cookies: raspberry, lemon or blueberry preserves
- Chocolate-dipped wafers
- Lemon bars
- Cheesecake bites
Mini desserts are an adorable base for sprinkles, frosting, chocolate, ribbons and flags. You can use these accents to make almost any treat fit your theme. Cupcake liners and doggie bags (so guests can take home a few desserts) are easy to coordinate as well.
Make sure your baby shower menu includes a few non-dessert items as well to accommodate for any dietary restrictions your guests may have. Fruit kebobs, a cheese tray and bite-sized veggies with dips are an easy way to ensure everyone can snack. Don’t worry, they don’t need to go on your picture-perfect dessert table!
