I've often thought the "gender-reveal cake" trend was fraught with peril, and today's wreck is a good example of why.
In case you haven't heard of it, the reveal cake has either pink or blue icing hidden inside, depending on the baby's sex - but the kicker is, the parents bring that info sealed from their doctor to the bakery, so the cake is how they find out if they're having a boy or a girl.
So...you're trusting a baker to correctly communicate your baby's sex?
Gee, WHAT COULD POSSIBLY GO WRONG?
Happily Kevin S. and his wife already knew they were having a boy, but for fun they decided to send a reveal cake to his parents to break the news. As is typical, they asked for it to be white on the outside and decorated with pink and blue polka dots, plus maybe a few question marks. Then they asked for blue icing inside the cake.
When the special order arrived at Kevin's parents' house, this is what they found:
And to think: someone looked at this and thought, "Yeah, that's what the customer wanted."
(John says you should read that cake out loud. So, go on. DO EET!)
Still, as baby cake trends go, it could always - ALWAYS - be worse:
...and frequently is. *sigh*
Thanks to Kevin and Stephanie F. for that revealing slice of humor.
