This Ombre Gender Reveal Cake Is Absolutely Genius


A gender reveal party is a beautiful way to celebrate a new addition to your family. There are a million unique was to reveal to your friends if the bun is a boy or a girl but this idea has to be the tastiest.

Southern Living has created an ombre cake filled with gender-specific candy so that you can have something that looks and tastes beautiful both inside and out. The cake has hollowed out lower layers with one complete cap layer on top. You can pick your favorite candy and decorate it in your own way, even match it to your nursery theme.

This idea is also brilliant for birthdays, anniversaries, or even randomly for a little fun.

We suggest using your favorite cake mix for each layer.

  1. Bake each cake according to the instructions on the box in cake pans lined with parchment paper greased with non-stick spray. Hollow out the lower layers and then stack with a generous layer of your favorite cake icing.
  2. Fill the hole with your favorite pink or blue candy.
  3. Cap the cake with a solid top layer
  4. Ice the entire cake to your liking. Be creative!
