I got the amazing opportunity to create some gender reveal cupcakes for one of my best friends. I made these not too long ago for another mama, and so I wanted to change it up a bit this time.
This time, I was NOT allowed to know ahead of time. So I had to make both pink and blue, mark them in separate containers, and the mama-to-be mixed the right one in while no one was looking.
I made white frosting for the tops. Then I “painted” pink and blue food color gel in stripes inside the piping bag…
Then carefully filled the bags with the white frosting.
When I piped swirls on the cupcakes, these pretty pink and blue streaks came through.
LOVE this technique, I will definitely be doing it again!
P.S. It was a GIRL! We can’t seem to locate the picture of the mama-to-be with the pink inside. 😦
