I don’t know how anyone can wait until their baby is born to know what the gender is. Matt and I could not wait to find out if we were having a boy or a girl. We were both convinced it was a girl, but was pleasantly surprised to find out we were having a boy. So I don’t know how parents can pass along the secret to someone else and wait to open a cake. The suspense would kill me!
So I was so excited to be asked to make a gender reveal cake. What a great thing to be a part of. I have already done a few cakes/cupcakes for Michelle.
Michelle told me to have fun with the cake, which I love. I did a vanilla cake and dyed the batter to reveal the gender. I was so nervous that a crumb would show up somewhere or the cake could somehow be seen through the buttercream. So I loaded that baby up with lots of frosting to hide any evidence of the gender. For the design, I decided to keep this cake simple with fondant pink and blue buttons. I also did pink and blue cupcakes to go with it.
Oh, and remember when I told you how I filled the house with smoke and set all of the alarms off? Well this is better.
See that? Yup, frosting on the ceiling. While I thought it was hilarious, Matt was not amused. I don’t know how I do this stuff.
Anyway, I bet you are dying to know if it is a boy or girl! Take a look at the pictures for the big reveal.
Yay! Another little girl. That cute little redhead Payton is going to be a big sister!
Thanks for checking out this fun cake!
