Nowadays, it seems that gender reveals are all the rage. And it is no wonder why either. They are fun, tasty, and a unique way to announce the gender of your baby. If you are expecting this season, then one of the most fun things you can do during your pregnancy is have a gender reveal party. And with all gender reveal parties, it is a must that you incorporate a gender reveal cake. Here are some of our top favorite gender reveal cakes for you to choose from.
1. The Star Wars Lover
For the Star Wars loving couple, a Star Wars themed gender reveal cake is a must. One of the cutest ways to show off the gender or your baby is by begging the question “Prince Or Jedi?” You can even include the fun question, "Luke or Leia?" Have fun with this cake and decorate it the way you want. For an added dose of creativity, we suggest using fun Star Wars cake toppers to decorate the cake. You can even use fondu to shape out a princess or Jedi. Show off your love for the galactic universe by revealing your baby’s gender with this fun cake.
2. Twinkle Twinkle Little Star
This next cake is the perfect gender reveal cake if you are looking for something innocent and cute. Pose the question with a good old fashioned nursery rhyme: Twinkle twinkle little star, how I wonder what you are. The best way to display this cake is by using a sheet cake or a single layered cake. The phrase is really long, so you will want to have enough cake to display it on.
Because of the nursery rhyme theme, you will want to stick to pastel colors. Have an equal mix of all the pastels so that you don’t throw off your audience into thinking that the gender is one specific one. For the inside of the cake, you will want to continue the theme of pastels by having a light pink or baby blue sponge.
3. Cupcake Or Stud Muffin
Have some fun with this next gender reveal cake. Have the phrase “Will it be a cupcake or stud muffin?” stretched out across the cake. Again, because the phrase is so long, you will want to include it on a sheet cake or a single layered round cake. For an added dose of creativity, be sure to have a cute little muffin and pink frosted cupcake for decoration. If you want, you can have a smaller cake that will be the gender reveal cake and a collection of muffins and cupcakes to go with it. That way, your guests will have a variety of sweets to indulge in.

Another way to pull this off is by having only one cupcake that shows the gender. You can give this cupcake to an unsuspecting guest, or give it to the parents so that they can find out first. Whatever method you choose, one thing is for certain. You are sure to have lots of fun finding out the gender.
