Our Pretty Gender Reveal Cake


And by “our” gender reveal cake, I mean my sister’s gender reveal cake!

After agonizing months of waiting, I finally found out if I’ll be having a little niece or a little nephew — an event that everyone in my family has been very much looking forward to.

And like any modern parents-to-be, they announced their news with a Gender Reveal Cake with one of the prettiest (and yummiest) cake designs that you can replicate yourself.

My sister’s friend made the cake, and she smushed up either raspberries for a pink filling or blueberries for a blue filling (mixed with buttercream frosting). The purple decorations were a mixture of mashed raspberries and blueberries in a question-mark design.

And fruit makes such a pretty natural decoration, doesn’t it?

IT’S A BOY!!!!!

And I’m happy to report that the cake tasted as good as it looked.

Congratulations to my sister and her boyfriend — and I can’t wait to get my hands on that squishable little boy! A boy!
