Boy or Girl?

I did my first “gender reveal” cake for some very dear friends!
Its not the most original design, but I was pleased with it.
Decorated with a little handmade blue sugar sneaker and pink sugar shoe, and pink and blue sugar paste hearts, covered in a rich cream cheese icing so that the colour of the cake inside is a surprise – blue cake for a boy, or pink for a girl!
This one was blue inside! 💙💙💙
I used my vanilla recipe for this 7" cake, and getting it blue instead of turquoise was tricky with the eggs and oil and vanilla essence! I tried baking it once and adding a little purple to counteract the yellow but it came out too dark, so I went with a turquoise in the end.

It’s such a privilege to do a gender reveal cake – knowing whether the couple is having a boy or a girl even before they do, and keeping it a secret!
