Gender-Broadcasting Baked Goods

These 'Sweet Sugar Belle' Cookies Reveal If It's a Boy or a Girl

— May 7, 2013 — Lifestyle
For expectant parents who are looking for a creative way to tell loved ones the sex of their baby, these 'Sweet Sugar Belle' cookies are it. This cookie follows in the footsteps of gender-revealing parties that usually celebrate with cake or cupcakes. For those who have no idea about this newly popularized tradition, it is a new way of finding out the gender of the baby-on-the-way.

Expectant parents ask the technician to write on a piece of paper whether the baby is a boy or a girl. It is then brought to a bakery where a gender reveal cake is created. Basically, it is a cake whose buttercream between layers is coordinated to be gender appropriate -- pink for girls and blue for boys. To keep the mystery alive and to not spoil the surprise, the whole exterior of the cake is frosted completely in white. When the party cake is finally cut, soon-to-be parents and their friends and family will learn the gender of the guest of honor. Unveiling this life-changing announcement this way involves the whole family in celebrating this joyous occasion.

These Sweet Sugar Belle cookies are quite similar in this regard. They are constructed using blue or pink-colored dough, which is then sandwiched between regularly colored dough and white icing. When guests take a bite into these cookies they'll finally know the gender of the family's newest member.
