Gender Reveal Parties!

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-

I would love love love to do this. It is our first child and I would love to start a tradition of having a reveal party for my future kids too. Knowing my family, though, my father would call the bakery after we left and make them color the cake yellow just to mess with me. :-)
