If you’re expecting or planning a gender reveal party then this easy marble gender reveal cake is perfect!
I currently have 3 very special people in my life expecting little bundles of joy. And even though I have no interest in having children of my own one day I do love babies. I love to cuddle them, play with them, sing to them, chatter with them, and give them back to their parents 😉
Aside from my cousin who’s expecting her first two very dear blogger besties are expecting babies two and three. Mary from Goodie Godmother wants to be surprised but Jennifer from Jennifer Meyering found out she’s having a sweet baby girl! This kind of sparked a discussion with a few friends about whether or not they’d want to know the gender of their babies and what fun gender reveal ideas they had.
I’m super into cakes right now for whatever reason and so when we decided to throw Jenn a virtual baby shower before Baby Girl arrives in November I knew I was going to make a cake. And after seeing a super simple and fun marble cake technique on YouTube I really wanted to try it! On a totally unrelated note this cake would also be perfect for a unicorn themed bash. Just throwing that out there…
All it takes to make those sweet pink and blue marbled swirls is to pipe lines of pink and blue frosting over your already frosted cake and smooth with a spatula. Presto! Just be careful not to smooth too much otherwise you cross the line from marbled pink and blue to purple. Which is fun in it’s own right but not exactly fitting with the gender reveal thing I was going for. Fill your cake with whatever colored candies you like. I opted for a couple shades of pink M&Ms after being totally overwhelmed by the choices at Party City. Seriously, I didn’t know candy came in so many colors!
To Assemble: *You can also spread the batter evenly between two deep 6 inch cake pans and torte each cake so you have 4 layers.
