Guess The Gender Cake: He Or She? Open To See

By Jan – Tulsa, OK

Guess the Gender Baby cake

Made for a friend of mine who had a party for her family to reveal the baby’s gender.

The mother-to-be wanted Chocolate cake with whipped chocolate ganache filling so I made that on the bottom cake (two 9×13’s) and covered with chocolate butter cream.

The ‘gift’ box above is the cake that holds the answer.

A 6″ tort French vanilla cake with pink butter cream mixed with raspberry filling on the inside and regular butter cream on the outside.

I doweled the corner where the gift box is so that the small cake does not crush the chocolate cake

Multi-colored fondant stripes on the chocolate cake echo the invitation. A bright pink gum paste bow topped the blue gift-box cake. I used Tappit’s funky alphabet letters for the lettering.

Welcome Little Peanut Cake

(Greenville, NC)

I made this Lil’ Peanut Cake for my sister’s ‘sex of the baby’ shower.

Throughout her pregnancy until bath time we didn’t know the baby’s gender and everyone was used to calling her lil’ peanut so I thought it would be only right to make a peanut themed cake.

This is a 3 layer butter cake with butter cream icing. The icing layers inside are blue to announce it’s a boy!

The small peanuts on the side are made of fondant and I just added pink and blue bows, the big peanut on the top is several layers of cake cut into the shape of peanuts and then covered with fondant.

He Or She, Who Am I? – Gender reveal baby shower cake

I made this cake for a friend’s shower reveal. The cake is French vanilla with vanilla butter cream frosting.

The outside is covered in homemade fondant. Her nursery theme was jungle animals so we stuck with that theme for the animals on the cake.

Everyone really liked the cake. They were especially surprised when they cut the cake open to see PINK inside, she already had three little boys and thought that this baby must be a boy.



Lovely Cake!

This gender reveal baby shower cake is incredible! I love all the details that are throughout the cake. The elephants are so cute and I really like how you made the words!

My niece is having a baby this summer and they won’t know what it’s like until the baby shower. So this cake will be perfect!

I love this new “gender reveal” trend. There are so many creative things you can do when planning!
