Oh baby! Baby showers and gender reveal parties are a time to celebrate the parents-to-be and the upcoming arrival of their newborn. But planning showers can be a daunting task. If your baby shower or gender reveal party ideas need a boost, you’ve come to the right place. Check out our tips on how to throw a baby-themed party filled with fun surprises, favors, and desserts galore.
1. The cake says it all. Desserts are the centerpieces of gender reveal parties and baby showers. Couples often use cakes or cupcakes to reveal the gender of their baby at parties. Make the perfect reveal cake using either traditional-sized cake pans or smaller pans that transform a two layer cake recipe into an impressive four-layer creation. Color the cake batter pink or blue with food coloring to match the gender of the baby, or make a vanilla or chocolate cake with pink or blue icing instead. If you want to get really creative, make our Chocolate Surprise Cake. Fill the center with pink or blue chocolate candies and when you cut into it, the candies will fall out of the center.
