10 of the best gender reveal cakes ever

So sweet!

Content Editor / January 01 2019

More and more parents choose gender reveal parties to reveal the sex of their new baby, and one of the easiest and most fun ways of doing this is to have a gender reveal cake. Simply ask your ultrasound technician to write your baby’s gender on a piece of paper and seal it in an envelope. Then give it to a friend with great baking skills, or drop it in to your local bakery to get a cake made in the appropriate colour, then iced to conceal the secret.

When you cut the cake, baby’s gender will be revealed. It’s a really fun way to find out whether you’re having a boy or girl, and can be shared with your partner, immediate family, or at a baby shower.

Here are 10 gorgeous cakes which will give you plenty of #inspo for your gender reveal.

We love this stunning cake, iced in buttercream and topped with pink and blue iced strawberries.

There’s a real retro feel about this beautiful cake, perhaps the little sateen booties…

These two are just stunning! Perfect for a twins reveal.

Two gender reveal cakes. We enjoy doing these cakes, especially when the soon to be parents do not know until they cut into the cake. What's your guess? 💖💙 #customcakes #genderreveal #genderrevealcakes #itsa #cakes #boyorgirl #excitement #celebrate
