So this was my first Gender reveal cake - SOOO exciting and so much pressure!!
Tara (the mom to be) Got a sonogram ... had them write on a piece of paper what the gender of the baby was ... put it in an envelope and sealed it ... then delivered the envelope to me!
So Tara had no idea what was in that envelope - only the sonogram tech and I were the only ones who knew! Now I had to bake the vanilla cake and color it either Blue or Pink and once Tara cut the cake she and everyone at the party would know what the gender of the baby would be! ITS A GIRL!!
So I have a confession to make ... I make beautiful sweet treats for everyone else except ... MY KIDS!
I know its horrible!! How could I?
Now dont get me wrong they reap the benefits of trying new recipes - a spare cupcake or two , broken cookies , scraps of cake with leftover icing ... but I rarely make them something super spectacular for their birthdays. My son just turned 5 and he wanted nothing more than a "fancy cake just like I make everyone else" those are his words and how could I argue? so I did it! He loved it !!
He wanted a chocolate cake with chocolate ganache filling - it was delicious!!
