Baby Gender Reveal Cake -- UPDATE!

A month or so ago I made my first baby gender reveal cake. I got a call from a wonderful woman whose daughter is expecting and was about to have her ultrasound. They chose a design and flavors, then when the day came for the ultrasound, I got a call from the technician who performed the ultrasound telling me to make the filling BLUE!

Then I got to work! I had the cakes prepped and uncolored frosting made ahead of time. I only had about 4 hours to color, fill, frost, and decorate the cake before they came to pick it up. The reveal party was that evening. They didn't want to wait any longer then they had to--I don't blame them! The cake was finished on time and picked up. Here is what the cake looked like:

A couple weeks later, they sent me an email letting me know how it went and included pictures! Here are a few of them:

Here is a photo of their table set-up.

Here is the mother-to-be with her revealing slice! Funny how her lei is the same color.. Could her intuition have told her what it would be?

I had a blast making this cake! I hope to do many more in the future. I have also recently seen gender reveal cupcakes with revealing filling used inside them. It was exciting knowing the gender before my clients did and I was careful not to have any blue on my uniform or hands when they came to pick it up. Didn't want to give anything away! I look forward to the next one!

Last Minute Orders!

We have had a large increase of last minute orders over the past few weeks. Most of these orders have given us less than 3 days to fulfill, and that doesn't include time to fill out the paperwork or take payment. We have had to, unfortunately, turn down orders that we would have loved to fulfill, due to short notice. We hate to do that! Not only does it sadden us by having to refuse orders, but it also forces you to go somewhere that may not be your first choice, or worse, leaves you without a cake!

So if you have an event coming up: birthday party, baby or bridal shower, anniversary, or any other special occasion, give us a call at 757-436-1249, or shoot us an email at as soon as possible to get your event in our calendar! An ideal time to place your order is 2 weeks prior to your event. Get your order in, and off your To-Do list!

We look forward to hearing from you, and better yet -- creating your fantastic cake!
