Gender Reveal Cake

Gender Reveal Cake

There is a growing trend with expectant moms and dads to find out the baby’s gender with a party.  The parents receive news of the baby’s gender in a sealed envelope and then use creative ways to share the surprise.  My favorite way is using cake of course!  But I haven’t had the chance to make a gender reveal cake until recently.

It’s a girl!  I baked a vanilla cake and colored it pink.  Then I covered the entire cake in white buttercream roses.  I tried so hard to make sure no crumbs were peeking out, that would have ruined the surprise!  I added a pink and blue fondant bunting to the top of the cake to add to the suspense.  This was so much fun to be a part of, and I’m so glad I was sent this picture after the cake was cut!

  • Too much! This is so funny as well as creative and beautiful.

    How do you make the roses?? What tip did you use? I am making a smash cake for my cousin and the cake looks like this!!

      I either used a Wilton 1M or 2D tip. They are very similar and I often use either one depending on how they look to me that day. I like to test them both out and see how I’m feeling!
