Is It A Boy Or A Girl?

I was so honored to be asked to create "gender revealing cupcakes" for my friend Jennifer. Jennifer and her husband John are expecting their first baby and they wanted a fun way to tell their family and friends whether they were having a boy or a girl. She emailed me a few weeks ago and asked if I could make her cupcakes with either a pink or blue gumball inside depending on the results of the ultrasound.

John dropped off the ultrasound picture on Wednesday which gave me one day to make 50 cupcakes for the "gender revealing party" on Thursday. Neither Jennifer or John knew the results....which meant I was the sole keeper of the news and had to keep a tight lip!

Jennifer wanted these adorable pinwheels that she found on etsy to be the theme for the cupcakes. Golden yellow cake topped with chocolate frosting kept the cupcakes neutral until the reveal.

Hidden inside each cupcake is a gumball. When everyone bites into the cupcake on the count of three the pink or blue gumball will be revealed. And the results are in.......

It's a Girl!!! Congrats Jennifer and John on your baby girl! I am so excited for you as you embark on your new adventure into parenthood!

Thanks to "Jack and Izzy" for the idea.
