Gender Reveal Cake - Lips and Mustaches



My sister just had baby #2, an adorable little boy.  So, a few months ago we had a gender reveal party for the family.  Another sister and sister-in-law put together lots of fun decorations and food.  The theme was adorable....lips and mustaches.

I was in charge of the cake.  What an important job.  My sister went to the doctor on a Thursday.  He put the gender in an envelope and she brought it to me.  I was the only one that knew what the baby would be.  So exciting!  I didn't even let my hubby or kids know.  I already had the white cake baked.  It was waiting to be filled with M&M's that would fall out to reveal the gender once cut.  The family gathered and made their guesses by stamping a mustache on a poster for boy, and lips for girl.  Overall, it was a pretty even split.  What a fun way to reveal the gender!!

I baked 4 round cakes to create the 4-layer cake.  I cut a circle out of the middle two layers.
Start putting the cake together by frosting the bottom layer.
Next, add the middle layers with the holes.  Frost each one.
Fill the cake with colored M&M's.
Add the top layer.
Frost the outside of the cake, smooth, and decorate.
The lips and mustaches were created with lollipop molds and 
Wilton candy melts from Hobby Lobby.
Here are the guesses before we cut into the cake.

The sequin ribbon decor & lollipop sticks were also found at Hobby Lobby.

Ta-da!!  IT'S A BOY!!  They were so excited.

  2. Nichi,
    Love the cake and the theme for the party! And how special is it that you were the very first to know if the baby was going to be a boy or girl! Congrats to your sister :)

  3. What a great theme idea for a gender reveal party -- and such a big responsibility to be the only one who knew before the party. Congratulations on your new nephew!
