Right before we found out what we were having this time around, I was trying to come up with cute ways to tell the family.

My mom was telling me about the gender cakes. What you do if you want to be surprised on whether or not it's a BOY or GIRL is on the day of the ultrasound take a piece of paper and envelope to the DR's office.
When they are doing the ultrasound just be sure to tell them you want to be surprised then have the DR or NURSE write down the gender results on the piece of paper and seal it up. You then take the envelope to your "cake maker" and have them whip up either a blue cake or a pink cake (Frost it so you can't see the color). That night when you slice into the cake ....

SURPRISE! You now know what you are having!

Cute idea, huh?
I was not patient enough : ) lol

Another cute idea that I found online were these "gender cookies".
I really REALLY wanted to do these but it would mean rushing home and baking cookies while the kids sniffed around and wanted to lick the bowl.

Believe me, when it comes to baking....There is always an audience.

For these you can make cake balls (use blue or red food coloring), dip them in chocolate and then bake them pretty much the same way I did with the oreo stuffed brownies only with chocolate chip cookie dough.

The kids would have enjoyed this.

Maybe next time....

(kidding on that)

But maybe you can try these ideas!

I love this idea for announcing gender and had a friend who did it! It's such a cute idea and definitely keeps everyone guessing until the last minute!

I've heard about gender cakes, but those cookies are so cute too!
