Baby Bootie Gender Reveal Cake

This single tier cake was the edible answer to the big question..."Boy or Girl?"  Baby reveal parties are becoming more popular and the "surprise cake" is a great way to let everyone know the sex of the baby.  This cake was covered in white fondant, then decorated half in pink, half in blue.  Shoes were molded out of gum paste, then I added matching pink roses and hearts on the girl side and blue diamonds on the boy side.  I added the final details by piping white buttercream ruffles on the girl side and argyle stripes on the boy side.

The surprise here was on the inside.  When the family cut into the cake, they discovered vanilla cake with strawberry buttercream in a PINK checkerboard pattern!  It's a girl!  Congrats to J & B and family!! xoxo
