Gender Cakes! A Pink or Blue Surprise
She had gotten the idea from a friend to surprise family with the baby's gender by baking a cake using pink or blue coloring and cutting open the cake after dinner to find out the surprise color. I had heard of something similar to this where another friend of mine used a message inside of a fortune cookie to let her family know she was having a girl. What was truly unique about Heather's request was that she didn't even want to know the sex of the baby before she cut open the cake- this meant the gender would be sent straight to me via the Dr's office (phone call in her case- written letter in a sealed envelope is also an option). I was glad Heather booked with me a month ahead of time because the "reveal" dinner was scheduled the same day as her Ultrasound appointment, and I had about an 8 hour window to complete her cake from baking to decorating to delivering (with other business demands to juggle). Thankfully, I was able to keep a secret before her cake cutting, and she and Jeremy were super stoked to find out IT'S A GIRL!!! I hope you enjoyed your pink velvet cake with cream cheese frosting, all the best for the remainder of your pregnancy and the life of your baby girl!
