Baking a baby surprise cake


 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
In the interest of baking I'm sharing my surprise. We have recently had a windfall of wonderful events in our lives ranging from my husband finally finding a good job to hitting some milestones in the pregnancy. With these great things comes what I thought was a drawback but turned out to be a lot of fun.

My husband wasn't able to attend our big ultrasound yesterday so I went it alone. The tech asked me if I would like to find out what the gender of the baby is and I said yes. Then she scrolled over and I saw that we were having a boy. She prepared me "now I have to warn you that these are not always 100%" and I said "Oh, It's a boy!". Then she said "yes, it looks like a boy" I'm thinking we are shooting pretty close to 100%.

So, in honor of our new little boy I baked my husband a chocolate looking cake with a surprise inside. I know that blue food isn't always the most appealing but the kids loved it and we had a great time. I used Betty Crocker's silver white cake recipe and added food coloring to change the color. Let me tell you, a little bit goes a long way too. Soon we were all eating like smurf kings and queens.
