A gender reveal party is an amazing way to reveal and share the happy news of your baby’s sex with your family and friends. It’s a party idea that’s been trending over the last five years celebrated by parents who are expecting a baby.
The couple asks their ultrasound technician to write the baby’s gender on a piece of paper and puts it in an envelope before handing it to them. The couple then hands the envelope to a trusted baker who prepares a special gender reveal cake for the party. The inside of the cake contains either blue if it’s a boy or pink if it’s a girl, which is concealed with frosting. When the parents cut the cake to know the baby’s sex and the guests congratulate them. Sometimes, parents-to-be already know it and keep it a surprise for their guests.
