Baby Gender Reveal Cakes

It’s a…?????? Gender reveal parties are the newest and hottest trend for expectant couples to share the sex of their baby to come. MORE+ LESS-

People ask the ultrasound tech to write down the gender of the baby, seal it in an envelope and then give the envelope to their local baker. The baker then makes a cake dyed either pink or blue inside and everyone gets a surprise when the couple cuts into the cake at the gender reveal party.

Well, Betty Crocker made it way easy to do the whole gender reveal party in cupcake form with their Fun Da Middle cupcakes. With these Gender Reveal Cupcakes, all your friends and family can share in the fun by biting into the cupcakes simultaneously to reveal your big news.

All you have to do is add a little blue or pink food coloring to the creamy vanilla filling inside your cupcakes. Here I added a little of both (no, I’m not having twins) just so we can see both versions.

Since Fun Da Middles already have a creamy inside, you really want to go simple with the frosting. I thought a rich chocolate ganache was perfect to showcase the decorations on top of the cupcakes. Just heat some cream, pour it over some chocolate chips, and stir until combined.

Dip the tops of your cupcakes in the creamy ganache and you’re done. How easy is that?

We've seen this fun way to decorate some of the cupcakes with question marks or blue and pink little plastic pacifiers to keep us all guessing until the big bite.

These are an adorable and affordable way of revealing the gender of your bundle of joy to come -- and super easy with Fun Da Middles!
