These adorable cupcakes topped with fondant buttons would be a good option for an experienced baker to bring to the shower. The recipe notes that the buttons take time to make and dry, so plan ahead. Hopefully your efforts will be rewarded with all the “oos” and “ahhs” you’ll get after serving cupcakes with edible, mini buttons.  Get the recipe here.

With so many options to choose from, there’s no need to serve pink or blue cupcakes to be gender-friendly. If you still aren’t sure what type of cupcakes to make, ask the mama-to-be what her favorite type of cake is and go with that. She’s the VIP, after all.
