Baby Gender Reveal Cupcakes

It is so much fun to reveal your unborn baby's gender in a creative way! There is so many ways that you can do the reveal, but I think something sweet like cupcakes are a great way to break the great news! This way everyone can share in your happy news and "discover" the secret at the same time.

A few days ago I went for our gender ultrasound.  Unfortunately hubby could not come with me as he had to work, I decided to find out what the baby's gender is, and then I went home to bake these cute cupcakes that will reveal the gender to hubby and our dear son....

When hubby and our son came home that afternoon, I gave them each a cupcake and told them to guess what the baby will be? They bit into the cupcake and it revealed.......

It's a BOY!!! Yes we are going to have a beautiful baby boy! We are so excited. My son is absolutely ecstatic that he is getting a brother :) and hubby is over the moon with another boy! Mommy can't wait to meet my little little guy!

Vanilla Cupcakes

1/2 cup white Sugar
1/3 cup soft Unsalted Butter
2 Eggs
1 tsp Vanilla Extract
1 cups Self Raising Flour
1/2 cup Milk

Cream the Butter and Sugar together till light and fluffy. Beat in the Eggs and stir in the Vanilla.
Add the Flour to the mixture and mix well. Stir in Milk and beat till smooth.

Spoon half of the cupcake mixture into another bowl - add pink or blue (blue in my case) food colouring to half the mixture. Spoon blue mixture into cupcake liners and then top with vanilla mixture.

Bake for 15-20 mins at 180 degrees Celsius, until a test pin comes out clean.

Makes 12 cupcakes

Ice (frost) with any colour icing that you like and put in a pretty cupcake papers. Decorate in any way you like. I frosted my cake in purple icing and decorated with a sugar flower and blue and pink glitter.


Plenty to go around........have everyone share in your wonderful news!!


  1. when you say "white sugar" do you mean granulated white sugar or powdered white sugar?
