It’s party time. A baby shower where the soon-to-be parents are going to find out the gender of their precious bundle is the most enjoyable type of party. The hostess of the party already knows whether the baby will be a boy or girl so she has to prepare a bunch of confectionaries to keep the parents guessing until the gender is revealed.
She starts off with multi-coloured cupcakes. This will certainly keep everyone guessing. Sunflower oil is combined with the dry ingredients so that the batter doesn’t separate when baked. Before adding the multi-coloured icing on the cupcakes, the hostess fills the inside of the cupcakes with either blue or pink jelly for a fun touch to the confectionaries. She then creates a butter frosting and splits it in two. Next, a blue colouring is add in one batch and red in the other batch to make the butter frosting turn pink.The main cake that will reveal whether the baby is a sweet little boy or girl. This is exciting part and will be an emotional event for everyone at the baby shower.
The hostess uses a similar recipe to the one she used for the cupcakes but adds some melted chocolate for a sweeter and stronger taste. The ingredients are mixed together with sunflower oil to prevent the mixture from sticking to the pan. The hostess uses a silicone jelly mould to get the ridged shape for the cake.
Once the cake has been baked, it is easily removed from the mould that was lined with sunflower oil. The bottom will be cut out so that the hostess can fill the centre with the appropriate colour smarties. She then closes the smartie filled centre and applies colourful frosting for the final presentation.
The cake is moved to the table which is decorated with baby items and silver embellishments. The parents are excited because it is baby gender reveal time. Together, they pick up a cake knife and are filled with excitement. They make the first cut from the centre to the circumference and then repeat the step.
They slowly remove the piece and finally… They have found out that they are having a baby girl. A bunch of pink smarties spill out of the cake and all over the table for the guests to see. Both parents are crying with joy and hugging all their guests.
The excited parents can now prepare for a baby girl.
