[Fake] Gender Reveal Cake & Cupcakes

I got the amazing opportunity to make gender reveal treats for another friend!

There was a twist this time. The answer on whether they were having a boy or girl – was NOT inside the treats.

The mama-to-be’s mother planned the party and asked me to put yellow inside of the cake and cupcakes.

I used vanilla pudding dyed yellow for the filling.


The outside of the cake was decorated with both blue and pink swirled together. I was inpired by this cake by Rosie of Sweetopolita.


The top of the cake was the ultimate question – Boy or Girl?


…and when the parents-to-be cut into the cake… they were pretty confused and irritated. (They did find out the sex of the baby another way right after that and it was pretty fun and cute. They are having a girl!)


Each guest got a matching cupcake.

    But how did the reveal actually happen?

    • There was a bouquet of blue and pink balloons… they drew tags from a bag that said “boy” or “girl” and with each draw they popped a balloon. In the end there were only pink balloons left. 🙂
