Gender Reveal Parties?
Tue, 03-12-2013 - 7:53am

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.

How do you feel about the gender reveal party trend?  Will you be hosting a gender reveal party?

I think it is a cute idea, but not something I'd probably do.  I think it would be a fun way to announce to family or friends at a small gathering.  I just don't think I'd throw an entire party for this purpose. :)
