Recently, we received two very fun and unique announcements from friends sharing that they’re expecting and if it’s a baby boy or girl. And they’re just too cute not to share with you! Bonus? These expecting moms found a fun way to make their announcements fun for family and friends both near and far!
One really unique way of revealing the exciting news? (It’s delicious, too, if you live nearby!) A friend posted this on Facebook:
And a few hours later…
Love this idea? We thought you might! See below for instructions on how to make your very own “Baby Cakes”
1) Prepare a batch of your favorite cupcakes (24 count). Let cool completely.
2) Mix up the filling while cupcakes are cooling:
2 tsp. hot water
1/4 tsp. salt
1 jar marshmallow cream (7oz)
1/2 cup shortening
1/3 cup powdered sugar
1/2 teaspoon vanilla
Food coloring (Red or Blue)
3). Dissolve salt in hot water and set aside to cool.
4). Whip marshmallow cream, shortening, sugar, and vanilla until it’s fluffy.
5). Add in cooled salt water and whip well until completely combined.
6). Add drops of food coloring to filling and whip until you have your desired color.
7). Fill your cakes:
Place filling in a pastry icing bag with a #22 star tip.
Insert tip into top of cupcake and gently squeeze until a small amount of filling is in the cupcake. You can also cut a small hole in the top of the cupcake and spoon filling in if you prefer.
8). Frost your cakes with your favorite icing to cover up the colored dot on the top of the cupcakes.
9) Serve to family and friends to share the wonderful news!
Another friend made the announcement by combining her love of photography, design and shoes!
