Navy and Pink Gender Reveal Cake

My absolute favorite kind of cake to make is a gender reveal cake!  I just love the concept of cutting a cake in front of friends and family to discover and celebrate the gender of your next family member.  :)  

The hostess wanted to stick to a navy/vibrant pink theme.  I love the way these colors went together.   

So, what do you think it was??  

or BLUE??

Since the reveal has already happened I can let you all know it was a GIRL!  The inside of the cake (cake and icing) was colored pink to reveal a pink as pink, no doubt in your mind, you're expecting a little baby girl.

Sports Lover!

This cake was created for a boy who LOVES his sports. :)  His favorite teams are the Chicago Bears (football) and Chicago Bulls (basketball).  He also wanted a Jordan shoe box to represent his favorite basketball shoes.

Belle Cake

Every now and then a cake I make catches my little one's eyes.  They see so many cakes come and go that they've become a little more difficult to really impress.  BUT, when my little 3 year old Olivia (she is convinced she is a real princess) came stumbling into the kitchen at 6:30am and saw me working on this one she stopped in her tracks, got bright eyed and said

 "MOMMY!  Is that for me?? That is the most beautiful cake. 
HOW did you do that!?"

I kinda think she thought I made the Barbie doll too.  Shhhhh.  Don't tell her any different.  I need to be her hero for as long as possible.

And unfortunately it wasn't for her.  Bless her heart.  ;)  But I told her I will make her whatever cake she wants when it comes time for her birthday.  I have a feeling she might want me to "make" a Barbie to put in her cake.  ;))
