Gender Reveal Cake

When we had our early ultrasound a couple weeks ago we thought for sure we would announce to everyone the gender. But after it wasn't too clear, we decided to just tell our family until we knew for sure at our next ultrasound. I had already asked my baker friend Laura to make us a cake, so we went with it!

It was Bob's birthday that week and I was bringing the dessert for Sunday dinner that my Mom was making for his birthday. I decided to bring the cake in place of Bob's birthday, and then surprise them with the gender.

The cake was darling, and delicious.  Everyone loved it, even though we confused some people.

It was my fault for not explaining to my family that we were revealing the gender inside of Bob's cake. (We didn't tell my family we were finding out early.) So my parents didn't pay attention at first. But they loved it once they understood! (I am sure they would've known if they ever looked at pinterest!)

Here are some pictures of the cake, along with the boy and girl quilts that I made. Tomorrow I'll post pictures of the inside. We are eager to find out if the frosting should stay the inside color or if we need to order another cake!

I'm feeling a girl, although the way you talked about the ultrasound makes it sound like maybe it's a boy. But I'm sticking with my guess of girl! Have fun tomorrow!

You're killing me! I want to know! :) Good luck tomorrow. I hope baby gives you a for sure look this time.
