Second only to I’m pregnant!!! Revealing the sex of your baby to your friends and family and yourself for that matter, is one of the most exciting and wonderful times in a family.
If you’re looking for a fun and creative way to announce the sex of your child to the special people in your life then look no further.
An oldie but a goodie, its always good time for cake. After your ultrasound hand a sealed envelope with the sex of your baby to your favourite bakery. Ask them to make the cake either blue on the inside for a boy or pink for a girl. You can gather your friends and family and hold a gender reveal party, cut the cake at your baby shower or opt for a more intimate affair with your nearest and dearest or just your partner.
Whatever you decide to do this is a wonderful and exciting way to reveal the sex of your baby. You can also do the same with cupcakes, biscuits or fortune cookies you get the idea.
