Waddle it be?

Waddle it beMy co-worker Scott and his wife Ailen are expecting and the baby shower is this weekend. They’ve decided to keep the gender of the baby a surprise so “Waddle it be?” is a ducky way of saying that we’ll all be surprised and delighted together.

Elephant & balloon cupcakes

elephant baby cupcakesThese sweet cupcakes were for a baby shower with an elephant and balloon theme.
I got a call from the mum-to-be’s sister who was putting on the shower, saying that the sex of the baby would be known on Friday afternoon. The shower was on Sunday. Could I make the cupcakes with a “gender reveal” interior?
On Sunday after lunch, the shower guests all held cupcakes and at the same time, took a bite. They had pink icing interiors. It’s a girl!

Weightlifters’ baby

Barbell gender revealI was very excited to do my first ever “gender reveal” cake. The secret of whether the cake is to be pink or blue is known only to the mum-to-be, dad-to-be, grandmother-to-be (who ordered the cake) and the baker! Drum roll as the cake gets cut and all the guests at the gender reveal party find out the secret.
The expectant parents are also fitness buffs who love to lift weights. So the cake reflected that, with a mini-barbell for when the little one is ready to lift his own. Oops! I let the cat out of the bag. Yes, the cake was blue velvet inside! It’s a boy!
