Plus, we already had the perfect girl’s name chosen. Rather than a flashy reveal, we opted to share the news in a low-key way by baking this gender-reveal M&M cake. As guests cut into the white cake, they discovered the inside was filled with either pink or blue M&Ms announcing if we were expecting a baby girl or boy.

In the end, it didn’t matter either way, as long as our baby arrived safely. But I loved witnessing the delighted reactions as our loved ones uncovered the gender result hidden inside the cake. It was personal, and light-hearted, and encouraged everyone to share in our blessing.

Dip the washed strawberries halfway into the colored chocolate and let set before drizzling the opposite tone over top. Not only do these make for gorgeous gifts, but they also provide an interactive element to the party as guests bite into the strawberries to reveal either a pink or blue interior.
