Anyway, if you look up gender reveal ideas on the internet, there's only a million billion things that one could do. I had to try a couple, cause how often does one get to do such things? :P
First, for Sak's overseas family, I made some reveal cards. What's your guess?
The sticker is peel-able! Here's what they look like Daiso.
Did you guess? Here's the peeled card!
Haha! You had a 50/50 chance more or less. :)
I didn't really have a preference either way, but I was very excited just to know! Now we can begin seriously thinking of names. So difficult :P
Anyway, for my family I also made some gender cupcakes! (Mostly because I wanted to eat cake at the time =_=)
They were having a 40% all bakeware sale at Michaels, so I loaded up on food coloring and a tool claiming to make two toned cupcakes.
I made a batch of vanilla bean cake mix from trader joes, and dyed a section of it blue with food coloring gel.
I used bags to "pipe" the mixture into the foil cupcake liners.
Not too bad?
But after baking the whole thing mixed together. Fail!!
Well. whatever. Maybe my cake batter was too runny or something? Luckily I used foil wrappers. Topping the cupcake with a good layer of buttercream icing should hide the blue (more of a green now?).
And now, the fun part! Food coloring spray paint! I don't bake often, so this was something completely new to me.
Yummy and pretty!
Anyway, as surreal as it sounds, we'll be having a son. I wonder if he will be nerdy like us. If he'll be into sports and the outdoors like his grandfathers and uncles. If he'll love bargain hunting and photography like his paw paw. If he'll like puzzles and be good at finances like his baachan. Or if he'll be very theatrical like his aunt!
Though most probably he'll be completely his own person, and introduce us all to new things. That should be exciting!
