The Best Gender Reveal Cakes Ever

Looking Back

by Edgar A. Guest

I might have been rich if I'd wanted the gold
instead of the friendships I've made.
I might have had fame if I'd sought for renown
in the hours when I purposely played.
Now I'm standing to-day on the far edge of life,
and I'm just looking backward to see
What I've done with the years and the days that were mine,
and all that has happened to me.

I haven't built much of a fortune to leave
to those who shall carry my name,
And nothing I've done shall entitle me now
to a place on the tablets of fame.
But I've loved the great sky and its spaces of blue;
I've lived with the birds and the trees;
I've turned from the splendor of silver and gold
to share in such pleasures as these.

I've given my time to the children who came;
together we've romped and we've played,
And I wouldn't exchange the glad hours spent
with them for the money that I might have made.
I chose to be known and be loved by the few,
and was deaf to the plaudits of men;
And I'd make the same choice should the chance
come to me to live my life over again.

I've lived with my friends and I've shared in their joys,
known sorrow with all of its tears;
I have harvested much from my acres of life,
though some say I've squandered my years.
For much that is fine has been mine to enjoy,
and I think I have lived to my best,
And I have no regret, as I'm nearing the end,
for the gold that I might have possessed.
The Real Meaning of “Old Town Road
Out of all the Cyrus clan, Billy Ray was the last of them we thought we wanted new music from. And a year ago, most people didn’t even know who Lil Nas X was. That all changed when Billy Ray Cyrus and Lil Nas X collaborated on the hit song “Old Town Road.” The hip-hop/country […]

As if going through a pregnancy for nine months, searching for the perfect baby name and throwing a baby shower wasn’t already enough of a challenge, many modern-day parents have taken it upon themselves to also throw creative gender reveal parties for their family and friends to discover whether their newborn will be a boy or a girl, generally categorizing them by blue and pink.  Sometimes things go as planned, other times, slightly less…and sometimes what they had in mind should never have been planned. Here are some of the most awkward, hilarious and epic gender reveals yet….

 

A Pizza My Heart

 

 

 

 

Okay, we know this isn’t a cake gender reveal, but we all really love pizza. There’s no denying that fact. But some people really, really, REALLY love pizza, to the point where they would actually use a pizza for their gender reveal. While slightly awkward, we do appreciate that they’ve used one of life’s greatest gifts (pizza, of course) and that they didn’t just follow the crowd with these boring cakes.

 

 

Don’t Even

 

 

Oh no you didn’t.  As if that’s what these unborn babies are thinking right now, right? Well, wrong. Very, wrong. But you know what – we appreciate the creativity and the respect given to the unborn baby. Just because they can’t yet speak and haven’t yet come in the world it doesn’t mean that people should just assume things from them and treat them as less. Great cake.

 

Boy, Girl, Or…?

 

 

While pretty much every cake has two simple options of either a boy or a girl, blue or pink – this gender reveal cake a strange third option. We’re not quite sure what’s it’s supposed to be, and we’re also not quite sure that we really want to know in all honesty. Sometimes, ignorance is bliss, and let’s just assume that whoever made this was feeling extra creative.

 

 

To Be Or Not To Be

 

 

What will it bee? Isn’t that absolutely adorable! These gender reveal cakes just keep getting better and better as parents attempt to impress their family and friends with their originality.  While we personally think this is pretty cheesy, at least it’s appropriate and isn’t offending to anyone, which clearly, is hard to come by today.

 

Southern Style

 

 

Tractors or tiaras? Really. That’s how you categorize your men and women? Especially your young men and women? Well, clearly whoever made this cake is from down south and has a very specific image in mind of what each sex should grow up to be. If their lucky, their daughter could be on the hit TLC show – toddlers in tiaras. Anyone got a barf bag?

 

 

Cringey Cakes

 

 

Will you be a cupcake or a stud muffin? Really? Really? That’s the best you’ve got for your child to be? What if they decide once their born that they in fact don’t want to be either of those strange and stereotypical sweet treats? Totally not fair that these parents are already placing these things upon their child before it can even speak for itself.

 

Harry or Hermoine

 

 

Great effort for originality! We love the Harry Potter theme in this gender reveal and is totally killing it on not just being the typical blue or pink cake. So will this child be a Wizard or a Witch? Let’s cut the cake and see! And then of course, have a Harry Potter marathon to make this party a whole lot more interesting, because please, the excitement only lasts for so long.

 

 

Hey You Baby Over There

 

 

This is pretty confrontational from a cake to an unborn baby if you ask us. How does the baby even know and how can the baby even answer? Well, it can’t, but you know…it’s intended to be a cute and original way to make a gender reveal cake. Because even though we all want to follow the crowd with this recent trend, we all still need to stand out, of course.

 

Simple Stereotypes

 

 

Not only has this gender reveal cake divided boys and girls into blue and pink from the inside, but also on the outside, it’s full of gender stereotypes! What if this baby to be is neither a fan of wearing tutus and tiaras nor of being a football jock? Well, seems like they won’t have much of a choice growing up in this American family.

 

 

Gender Neutral

 

 

For all of you out there that don’t believe in all of these gender reveal parties with these cheesy and tacky blue and pink cakes, we’ve found the perfect treat for you to serve at your baby shower. Here you have gender neutral gingerbread people, not gingerbread men, do take note! You can still serve treats at the party without supporting this concept.

 

Lil Thing In Da House

 

 

Will it be a little lady or a little man? Well…you’re just going to have to cut the cake to find out in this super exciting gender reveal.  Super exciting for who though? Couldn’t you just have called everyone up or sent them an email, rather than having everyone come together to see what this little person is going to be? For the first few months anyway they look like a gender-neutral alien.

 

 

Sweet Stomach

 

 

While most people have a sweet tooth, here we have ourselves a sweet stomach! And not just any kind of sweet stomach, but a pregnant one too! Any takers? Well….while it might be kind of strange and uncomfortable to eat the insides of a pregnant women, we’ve got to be grateful for the fact that this cake is pretty original when it comes to gender reveals!

 

Mario Mayhem

 

 

Well this is really cute and original. We absolutely love it…way to go whoever did this. When the question mark explodes as it does in the Mario games, we will know whether its a boy or a girl! Will it be a Mario or a princess Peach? Either way, we’re all ready to get back to our video games after having a piece of this cake, that’s for sure.

 

 

Dr. Who

 

 

Well, that’s really cute! A Dr.Who themed gender reveal cake. We’re pretty sure that people would have rather just come over to watch the show, or better yet…just watched it on their own. But hey – free cake is free cake and we won’t say no to that. Oh also it looks like it’s a girl, so congrats! Now cake we eat the cake already?

 

Its A…Dinosaur?

 

 

Congrats! You’re having a…dinosaur? Well, that’s what it seems like at the current moment, since the only colors that are socially acceptable for a gender reveal are blue and pink. Green obviously must be a dinosaur then, right? Well…we sure hope not for their sake. Let’s just hope they were trying to mix things up and prove that gender goes beyond the stereotypical colors.
