Gender Reveal

I'm sure by now all of you have heard about the new trend in baby showers...the gender reveal party.  These events have become quite popular over the past couple of years.  The gender reveal party usually welcomes both men and women as is held to announce the sex of the baby to family and friends and even the parents-to-be.  Party guests make their prediction on what the baby will be and usually wear something pink or blue to represent their guess.  The reveal comes in different ways, but the most popular way has been through a cake.  The cake will either be pink or blue or have pink or blue filling to signify the sex of the baby, so that when it is cut and the first piece removed, everyone will know! This was my first time getting to do a gender reveal cake.  It was really exciting to know that I was second only to the doctor in finding out this couple was going to be having a little GIRL!

The design of the cake was based off of a baby shower cake I had done last year.  The shower cake was for twins, but this couple was only having one baby.

As you can see from the pictures, the cake was vanilla with PINK buttercream filling. The babies are also cake, but the gender reveal filling was in the main part. The polka dot accents and the babies/blankets are fondant.
