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.|
