All black and white baby shower cakes and cupcakes are not as "minimalist" by design as the ones in the above pictures. Elaborate layered cakes with fondant to duplicate damask and French toile patterns are seen at even the most casual baby showers.
Monochromatic black and white cakes at wedding receptions are kind of a no-brainer since many modern bridal gowns are white and most grooms wear black tuxedos with a white tuxedo shirt. But black and white decorations on a cake for a baby shower...let's just say that until black and white baby bedding became so popular the colors (or lack of them) would have been a harder sell.
Go here to see elegant stands, toppers and liners that will display your cupcakes in the best possible light.
Now we see them popping up accented with bright colors that make a spring day seem dull in comparison. And decorations? Black and white invitations, decorations and partyware that are in obvious baby themes (not solid black and white) are easy to locate. The themes include baby stroller themes, modern mom themes and even penguin themes! And then there are the more transitional patterns of black and white damask, polka dots and stripes and paisley shaped cake decorations not to mention the black and white "bow-tie" cupcakes that we see in the pictures above that are a creation of Sweet Cupcakes and Treats whose url that I had previously posted appears now to be non-functional.
