Reveal Cake


MY BFF IS PREGNANT! Can you tell I’m pumped? It was such an honor to be asked to make a reveal cake for her “Reveal Party”. A reveal party is basically what it sounds like. A party to reveal the sex of the baby. My bestie opted for a reveal cake. Meaning, the color of the inside of the cake clues you in to the gender. As you can tell by the pink, this sweet bundle of joy is a girl! I felt it was the perfect opportunity to try out an ombre cake recipe. I went full fledged diva on this cake from the ombre pink cake to the multi-colored crystal sprinkles. I tried to keep the outside a mystery by using pink and blue. This recipe was relatively easy with the most time consuming part being the icing. I wanted it to be as blended as possible. The trick is to not overwork it and embrace the imperfections (and a turn table, which i didn’t have). In hindsight I should have used less coloring for a more subtle sweet look but, it was still a hit. Everyone was so surprised and happy to hear the sweet news.
