Gender Reveal Bee Cake

mmc bakes gender reveal cake bee theme baby shower san diego

Surprising friends and family with a gender reveal cake can be so much FUN!  I know this because that’s the same way I chose to share the gender of my first child.  A baby is such a blessing, and throwing a gender reveal party is a special way to celebrate by making that big announcement with loved ones.

I was thrilled to be a part of this bee-themed gender reveal baby shower.  What a clever theme, because yellow is a gender-neutral color when it comes to baby clothing, and apparently there are a lot of cute things you can do with bees!
This is a single-tier 10-inch blue vanilla cake with sweet cream cheese and a nice layer of leche flan in the center.  The little edible bees & flowers are hand-sculpted fondant, and the cake is covered in buttercream.  The client chose the perfect words, “He or She, what will it Bee?”

In the end, after seeing the client’s photos of their beautiful dessert table with bee cupcakes, honey favors, and other matching goodies, it was truly an honor to hear from the “Mommy-to-Bee” that the cake pulled everything together!  Compliments like that are exactly why I love making cakes!

Congratulations Kelly & Michael, and thank you for allowing me to make your special cake!  YAY Team BLUE!!!

Below are photos taken by the client; my favorite is the one where the happy parents are kissing and holding the slice of blue cake!
