“Gender Reveal” Cakes

This is such a cute trend, that I just had to write a post about it.  It’s a super-unique way for parents-to-be to share the moment they find out the gender of their (unborn) child with family & friends.   It’s perfect for baby showers, as well as a fun way to let Grandparents in on the secret.   Here’s how it works:

Parents-to-be who wish to find out the gender of their child before he or she is born simply provide their doctor with the phone number of the baker who is preparing their baby shower or Grandparent cake.  Then, once their doctor determines the gender of the child, they or a staff member calls the baker to let them know.   The baker then prepares the cake, adding either pink or blue food color to the cake mix and then, frosts it as they normally would or with fun questions marks, etc..   No one knows the gender of the child-to-be until the cake is cut and then everyone finds out at the same time.  It’s such a heartfelt idea… I love it!

Here’s a video I found on YouTube that shows a couple finding out the gender of their baby, along with family & friends:
