I love seeing Pinterest images of gender reveal ideas. Honestly, that’s probably where I came up with this one, no one has an original idea anymore! I have to constantly look for inspiration. I don’t want to copy anyone, and I don’t, but I can hardly come up with things on my own. When I do; though, it’s already been done, so what’s the point??
Anyway, I just thought I would share with y’all our gender reveal photos, I love how they came out, and everyone was so excited! All of our family and friends live pretty far away, so they were all waiting on us to post our results to Facebook when we found out!
So, I made a cake “We’re just here for the sex” with white icing on the outside. Blue velvet on the inside…. and holy moly, blue velvet box cake mix by Betty Crocker, it’s the BEST. I did it with little J’s 6th birthday cake (Donatello ninja turtle) too.
I got my mother (a former professional photographer) to take our pictures down by the river while she was visiting for the ultrasound. She always does an awesome job, you’ll have to check out my 37 week shots that she also did (I will be posting those soon!).
Why yes, we live in a GORGEOUS part of the country…. AND it was 70 degrees outside in JANUARY.
So, I posted the first photos of us, the uncut cake, and a couple of family shots on FB for a big tease for everyone while I was editing. Then, a few hours later, put up the big reveal pictures!
Little J and Big J with their cake!
Cute right? Well, it was the best I could do for living in a travel trailer at the time! We had to borrow big J’s cousin’s oven to cook the cake! haha… Another story, another day!
