Making gender reveal cakes has always been one of my most favorite cakes to make. I always felt like it was such an honor to be the first to know such important news. It's also one of the more stressful cakes to make, because you have to get it right!
As some of my followers know I am pregnant with our first child. Which we are absolutely over the moon about; its the biggest blessing I could have ever hopped for and I was hoping we would be able to have a gender reveal cake of our own. So we decided to do one for our Mother's and family for Mother's Day. My husband and I already know the gender, but thought it would be fun to so something special, and something that represents our unique personalities in how we revealed our little one's gender to our friends and family. So we settled on doing a gender reveal cake for our families and my husband is going to our local gun range to shoot at exploding targets (which will be full of our gender colour) and film it for a "Facebook Reveal".
So in honor of our gender reveal, I thought I would show my followers how to do a photo tutorial of how to make your own gender reveal cake at home. As much as I love making my customers beautiful gender reveal cakes; it's not always feasible, now you can make a quick and easy homemade version!
Step Three: Take a round cookie cutter and cut a hole in the middle of all your cake layers Except for the top and bottom cake layers.
Step Four: Stack and fill your layers with your favorite homemade buttercream; making sure to leave that middle hole free of buttercream.
Step Five: Fill the centre of the cake with Pink or Blue candies.
Step Six: Place the top layer on the cake and cover with a layer of your icing and decorate!
I have been caking for just about three years now and have learned so much. Through this blog I am hoping to inspire and share my passion for the artistry of cake design.
