Last weekend, Mel baked her own Gender Reveal Cake to break the news to the family. Was the cake pink or blue? Watch this YouTube video of the cake cutting to find out!
Mel also had a giveaway on her Facebook page, and the winner of the $15 gift certificate was….*drum roll please*…Sheryl Aman! Sheryl, check your Facebook Messages because we sent you the instructions for claiming your gift certificate.
Mel’s having another baby! She already knows the gender of Baby #2, but do you??? Guess the gender and post your suggestion for a name on our Facebook Page for a chance to win a $15 gift certificate from Ph.D.-serts & Cakes! Everyone who comments will be entered to win.
We’ll reveal both the gender AND the winner on Sunday, December 9, 2012. Good luck!
And, by the way, did you see us on the Fox 13 news? They did a whole segment on gender reveal cakes and we were thrilled to contribute! Check out the segment here, and then call us to schedule your own gender reveal cake.
Well the news is out! We’ve called all our friends & family and even announced it on Facebook. Announcing it on Facebook was a little intimidating for me…once you say anything, EVERYONE knows! That’s a little scary!
So, it’s only fair to announce it here too…I’m pregnant! My husband and I have been trying to conceive for 15 months so the fact that there is a baby (currently the size of a blueberry, according to what I’ve read) growing inside me is a bit surreal. And since we’d been trying so long, we had to come up with a creative way to break the news to our immediate families!
I made cookies in the shape of onesies using this cutter & texture mat set from Country Kitchen Sweet Art. On each cookie, I hand-painted a special message for each family member.
These are the cookies for my Dad, Mom, and sister:
And these are the ones we gave to my in-laws:
And, of course, I made a little surprise for the Daddy-t0-be:
The doctor said I’m actually due Sept 22nd, but I was close! How did you break the news to your family and friends? I’d love to hear about it!
