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

By Jan - Tulsa, OK

Guess the Gender Baby cake

Done for a friend of mine who had a party for her family to reveal the baby's sex.

The mother-to- be wanted Chocolate cake with whipped chocolate ganache filling so I made that the bottom cake (two 9x13's) and covered with chocolate butter cream.

The 'gift' box on top was the cake that held the answer.

A 6" torted French vanilla cake with pink butter cream mixed with raspberry filling inside and regular butter cream outside.

I doweled the corner where the gift box would be so that the small cake would not crush the chocolate cake

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

Welcome Little Peanut Cake

gender reveal cake

by Ashley
(Greenville, NC)

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

Throughout her pregnancy until the time of the shower we didn't know the sex of the baby and everyone got into the habit of calling it lil' peanut so I thought it was only right to make a peanut themed cake.

It is a 3 layer butter cake with butter cream icing. The inside icing layers were blue to announce that it was a boy!

The small peanuts on the sides are made of fondant and I just put pink and blue bows on them, the large peanut on top is several layers of cake cut in the shape of a peanut and then covered in fondant.

He Or She? Who Will I Be? Jungle Baby Shower Cake

He Or She, Who will I be? - gender reveal baby shower cake

I made this cake for a friend's gender reveal shower. The cake was French vanilla with vanilla butter cream frosting.

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

Everyone really loved the cake. They were especially surprised when they cut the cake to find a PINK inside, she has three little boys already and thought for sure this baby was going to be a boy.



Adorable Cake!

This gender reveal baby shower cake is fantastic! I love all of the detail there is throughout the cake. The elephants are so cute and I really like how you did the wording!

My niece is having a baby this summer and they are not going to find out what it is until the baby shower. So this cake would be perfect!

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