Gender Reveal cakes are great fun and a truly exciting way to find out the sex of your baby! Of course you need to be very patient to do this, as I fully understand the anticipation of those long dragging days leading to you scan. However I can promise that you’ll be glad you waited!
Here is how it works: The cake plays a key role at the baby shower. It is cut in front of the guests and the colour of the cake inside reveals the gender of the baby that the couple are expecting. Even the parents are in the dark until the cake is sliced.
The expectant mother attends the hospital for her scans and asks the gender of the baby to be written down and then sealed in an envelope. The mother then passes this to the cake maker without looking and the cake maker designs a baby shower cake. She will colour the sponge either blue or pink. Therefore the gender of the baby is secret from all at the baby shower including the parents until it is served!
Of course if you like the idea of the gender reveal cake but know that as soon as you get home you’ll be holding that little envelope up at the window to catch a glimpse of those life changing letters, then by all means have the gender reveal cake as a surprise just for your guests.
