what will baby Cardon bee?

before Michelle even got pregnant she said she wanted to do a gender reveal cake for her next baby, and I have been super excited ever since. fast forward a year or so, and she's having a baby. i was a little afraid she might change her mind, but luckily she and Andrew thought it sounded fun especially since they were convinced it's a boy.

celsey and i have been dying to try the beehive cake again. this time we did a layered cake rather than using the beehive pan. 6 cakes, 4 batches of frosting, and plenty of fun later...

the finished cake

the cake looks tiny in this picture, but it was actually pretty huge

nettie put together a poll of family members. even though michelle and andrew didn't even consider a girl. a lot of people in the family thought girl.

michelle's reaction is the best part of this whole thing. these cakes are so fun! i wish more people would wait and find out the gender with a cake.


  1. aww her reaction is perfect! and that cake is adorable!

  2. What a CUTE idea! The cake does look small in that one picture, but I believe you that it is big... especially with 6 layers!

  3. What if you have a bad reaction to the gender and it's on tape for all of posterity!?!??!!

    Other than that, super cute. Maybe I'll do this next time and since I have a boy and a girl, I should be okay regardless of what it is.

  4. Oh my goodness! So cute. Her reaction was awesome. I don't know if my impatient self would be able to wait between the doctor knowing and a party, but I love the idea.

  5. You are so awesome to have done was so fun skyping with them and seeing their reaction. SUCH a cute cake!!

  6. Oh my goodness! That is such a cute idea for a gender reveal cake. Someday, I will be as cool as you... Hopefully.
