Planning a gender reveal party and need some gender reveal cake ideas? I’ve got 21 awesome ones for you so read on!
Having a gender reveal party, complete with a gender reveal cake, is kind of all the rage right now.
If you don’t know what a gender reveal party is, it’s where friends and family get together to discover the gender of an unborn child together. The gender reveal cake (or cupcake or cake pop) has either blue or pink frosting or filling inside of it which you can only discover by cutting into the cake. If it’s blue, the couple is expecting a boy. If it’s pink, they’re expecting a girl. These gender reveal cakes are a delicious way to share the gender reveal announcement with friends and family.
Honestly, I do think these parties are fun, even if we’ve never done one for any of our pregnancies (we’ve done gender reveals with siblings though!).
However, we have been invited to a few of our friend’s gender reveal parties (usually via an adorable gender reveal invitation), and all of them have had a gender reveal cake.
In fact, the last one we were invited to, they asked me to take pictures for them while they cut into the cake. They themselves didn’t know whether it would be blue or pink inside! They had the ultrasound technician put the gender on a piece of paper in a sealed envelope that they then handed to a bakery to make for them!
It was fun to discover along with our friends (and their children) the gender of their last baby as they cut into the cake. (It was pink inside – a girl!)
If you’re throwing a party for yourself and don’t know the gender yourselves, be sure to hire a photographer (or ask a friend) to take pictures of your reactions!
