Making this cake for my very best friends Jenn and Peter was by far one of the biggest honors I have ever had! Not only was I responsible for baking the cake that would reveal the gender of the baby to a house full of 30+ friends and family, but I would also be responsible for keeping a secret for more than 48 hours :-O… Secrets are so hard to keep when they’re pink!!!
Wanting to go above and beyond to make this cake special for them, I decided to do something a little different than the typical pink/blue colored cake. Only having seen this done once before, I was a bit hesitant as far as the architectural structure was concerned. Thus, a trial cake was made on the Tuesday prior to the party. Boxed cakes and tub frosting were the perfect quick fix to ease my concerns on the construction of the cake. After a successful trial run, I couldn’t wait to see their reaction when they found out they were having a baby girl!
I have included a very detailed, step-by-step pictorial and instructional guide for you to follow if you’d like to make one as well. It’s such a simple cake to make with a very dramatic effect. Congratulations again, Peter & Jenn!!!
