21+ Simple and Stunning Baby Shower Cakes for Boys

This post contains affiliate links.

I’ve searched high and low to find the most beautiful, simple baby shower cakes for boys that are sure to inspire you as you plan your celebration.

Not into the ultra saturated, colorful aesthetic that plagues most baby toys, clothes, gear and… cakes?

Me neither.

As you may have gathered from this website’s name, I am more of a minimalist myself.

Soothing taupes and clean whites and relaxing, smooth greys really do it for me.

So, without further ado, let’s explore these dreamy modern, neutral sweets, perfect for welcoming your little one-to-be.

My Favorite *Simple* Baby Shower Cakes for Boys

While not every cake in this collection was created specifically for a baby boy’s baby shower, all you’d need to do to get them to fit just right is customize the cake messaging or order a cake topper with whichever phrase you choose.

To explore the artist behind each cake, simply tap the name in the caption at the bottom of each image.
