This little DIY gender reveal cake is the perfect cake for revealing your future baby’s gender! I created this easy cake for my sister who is having baby number three. She has two adorable little girls and we were all secretly hoping for a little boy in this family! We decided to throw this little baby its first party by revealing the gender. The nurse wrote the baby’s gender on a note card and slipped it into an envelope & the cake was tinted pink (in this case, but blue if it was a little boy). We then had a little party & cut the cake! It’s a girl! Make this super easy DIY cake for your next gender reveal party!
