One of my customers requested a great cake this month (February 2014). It was a for a baby shower, but the parents didn’t want to know the sex of the baby….until they cut into the cake – pink sponge for a girl, or blue sponge for a boy! Penny (the mum to be) went for her scan and asked the nurse to write down the sex of the baby and seal it in an envelope, Penny then gave me the sealed envelope. I then opened the envelope, noted down the sex, resealed it and handed it back. I created the cake, in the desired decoration with the wording of “He? She? Open to See!” and coloured the sponge in the appropriate colour.
The family then gathered at the baby shower, and excitedly cut the cake!
If you are wondering,……it was pink for a baby girl! (Congratulations Penny!)
This is such a great idea, and this is what the cake looked like. For more cakes related to christening/baby showers see the christening cakes page
