From the guest list to the venue, the theme to the timing, throwing a baby shower requires quite more than a bit of planning. One of the main concerns is, of course, the menu. A fête celebrating a little one on the way offers the perfect opportunity to serve up savory and sweet noshes that are as pleasing presentation-wise as they are on the palate. Whether baby shower desserts are catered or homemade, it's natural to seek inspiration for decadent bites that will fit the shower's theme, which, for a little girl, might be anything from a starry, nighttime safari to a pretty-in-pink princess motif.

After all, perhaps above all else -- apps, drinks (alcoholic and/or non), the main entree, etc. -- the pièce de résistance may very well be the dessert. There are just so many gorgeous and appetizing ways to treat guests!

From cupcakes to cake pops, wafers to parfaits, or cheesecake, there are a plethora of styles, colors, and themes to choose from when it comes to baby shower desserts. And it may be best to take the tastes of the mom-to-be and her guests under consideration, as well as the season, venue, and sex of the baby.

For a little girl on the way, desserts that come in the form of flowers, tutus, or princess crowns are often popular. So too are flavors like strawberry, raspberry, mimosa, watermelon, and pink champagne. Here, a roundup of adorable and delicious-sounding desserts perfectly tailored to a baby shower for a little girl.
