Creative Baby Shower Food Ideas

Not too long ago I was on Pinterest and saw a very creative idea for a baby shower.  Someone had carved a watermelon to mimic a bassinet with a baby inside (one of the pictures below).  That got me thinking about what other creative ideas for baby shower food might be out there.  So after lots of searching I’ve compiled a list of some of the most creative baby shower food ideas, and food art, the web has to offer.  Enjoy!

    How do you make Rubber Duck Punch Bowl-Punch? I have made punch kind of like that with ice-cream but that don’t look like ice-cream to me, please send me directions if there is anyone out there that know. Thanks

    There are also edible ink pens available – check Amazon for a range of colors, point-sizes, and costs. :) There a bit easier than a toothpick and foodcoloring, and worth the price if you are into decorating and entertaining.

  11. Denise says:

    I think I am going to try the baby carriage eggs – but make them deviled. The creamy filling should look like a fluffy yellow blanket. Will have to be careful – it’ll be easy to tear the hood off the buggy!
