Gender Reveal Cookies and Treats Made Sweetly

Make the reveal extra sweet with party treats that keep everyone guessing (notice all the question marks?) till the first slice or bite! You could go with yummy chocolate cupcakes with pink or blue filling, or really fancy cookies decorated with boy and girl silhouettes or cool Super Mario Bros. graphics. The gender reveal party cake itself could ‘spill the beans’…or should we say, the candies! Love this candy-filled example and this darling onesie design that has the inner layers colored for the reveal.
