Gender Cake’s Sure to Be The New Way To Announce Gender of Your Baby

The “Today Show” featured a gender cake for Anna and Josh Duggar who are expecting their first child later this year. They are the now-famous married couple of Michelle and Jim Bob Duggar (who are famous for having 18 kids).

So, Josh and Ann wanted to find out the gender of their baby in a special way and include their family in the announcement. They had the results of their ultrasound kept secret from them and sent to a bakery. The bakery (which just so happened to be TLC’s Cake Boss) colored the inside of a cake either pink or blue. Josh and Anna wouldn’t know the gender until they cut open the cake.

Cute idea. I’m sure this will spiral in popularity now that it’s been done on national television. I’m not sure how many bakeries are equipped to do this yet, but it’s worth asking if you are interested in this concept. Here’s an article I found on how to make one for yourself — if you already know the gender and just want to surprise your family. Or you could offer to do this for a friend.

    Um….they are not the first to think of “gender” cakes. Thanks for giving them the credit anyway. Ugh!

    @Elise I didn’t exactly give them credit for this idea, just that I think it may become more popular now that it’s been on the Today show.

    up and let you know a few of the images aren’t loading correctly.
    I’m not sure why but I think its a linking issue.

    show the same outcome.
