Gender Reveal Parties?
Tue, 06-21-2011 - 10:04am

Forget finding out the sex of your baby from the ultrasound tech or in the delivery room. Today, parents-to-be are opting for a truly sweet way of discovering whether they're having a boy or girl -- a gender-revealing baby cake!

That's right, many expectant moms and dads are now learning their baby's sex from the local baker. Here's how it works: The doctor keeps quiet about the baby's gender, writes down the top-secret info on a piece of paper and places it in a sealed envelope. Parents-to-be then deliver the envelope to a baker, who creates a cake that gives nothing away on the outside, but once you cut into it -- oh, the suspense! -- a shock of blue or pink filling appears.

Trend Alert! Baby "Gender Reveal" Parties-

CUTE idea!

Cute idea to surprise parents or dh, but kinda corny to have a party just for it

I responded to a similar post about this on another board, but one of my friends did something similar to this.

We had a friend do this for her children to find out the gender of their soon to be sibling. She took pictures and posted on facebook.

I would feel weird making a big to do about it, but over a family dinner or something would be no big deal to me. It isnt really my style though.
