Baby shower food trend: cakes reveal gender of baby via frosting color! Boy or girl, blue or pink?.. ..frosting that is.

I’m not sure if this is a ‘new’ trend or not – but it’s certainly new to me thanks to last week’s Saturday Night Live. You may have been watching the season finale of SNL featuring host Justin Timberlake and musical guest Lady Gaga. Well I was giddy to hear SNL actor Seth Meyers mention a food trend during his Weekend Update segment…

Seth’s Baby Cake one-liner on SNL..

“A growing trend among expectant parents is to have the sex of their baby revealed through “baby cakes,” which contain either blue or pink icing inside, rather than having a doctor tell them. And what could be more American than saying, “Yeah, yeah, doctor. I’ll believe it when I hear it from a dessert. Thank you, though.”

..ha. Fun. Revealing the gender of your baby through either pink or blue. Now what if you are having twins? Maybe a triple layer cake with two lines of frosting?

What do you think of this trend?

Other surprise ways to use pink or blue themed colors in your baby shower foods:

* pink or blue filled doughnuts for a baby shower brunch (blueberry or strawberry jelly filling)

* pink or blue ice cream sandwiches coated in dark chocolate

* pink or blue frosting filled cupcakes with white frosting on top

* pink (strawberry) or blue (blueberry) lemonade.

..of course these subtle food hints really don’t compare to the layer cake idea. Slice a cake: reveal if it’s a boy or girl What won’t we dream up next??
