Gender Reveal Cupcakes!

Posted on

Is it a boy?  Is it a girl?  You’ll have to take a bite of this cupcake to find out!   Such a fun way to reveal the gender of a coming baby!!!

About a month ago I was on a mission to create some gender-reveal party desserts for my cousin Ericka.  I posted a gender reveal fudge cookie that she actually used and everyone loved.  She’s a teacher and her students loved the idea that the cookies held a “secret”.  I promised to post more recipes for gender reveal parties and this one is SO INCREDIBLY EASY!!!  It uses a cake mix and some food coloring and thats IT.  I was browsing the baking aisle a few weeks ago and came across a new product by Betty Crocker called “FUN da-Middles“.  It is a cupcake mix that comes with a creamy filling.  They come in both yellow and chocolate.  I simply HAD to try this (because who doesn’t love filling inside of anything??!!).  They work beautifully- easy to make and they bake up into the most beautiful cupcakes.  But I wondered if you could change the filling color without causing a recipe fail.

This was the result: so much fun!  Here’s how:

INGREDIENTS:

DIRECTIONS:

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  • Make cupcakes according to box- but instead of cutting a corner off the bag of cream filling and piping over cupcakes, pipe it into a bowl and color it 1st.
  • Color cream filling with Wiltons Icing color- it won’t change the consistency of the filling because it is a gel and you only need a TINY bit to create a bright color.
  • Place colored cream into a small ziptop bag.  Zip it shut, clip a corner of the bag off and pipe filling on to cupcake batter as directed on box.
  • Bake according to box and cool completely.
  • Mix 1/2 of a container of Cool Whip with a can of white frosting.
  • Clip the corner of a large ziptop bag and slide a cake decorator tip into the open corner.  Fill the bag with frosting, zip it closed and pipe generous amount on top of cupcakes.
  • Decorate as desired. (I used Wiltons candy melts in a Dessert Accents Candy Mold to top these gender reveal cupcakes).


Not having a baby?  Not throwing a gender reveal party?  These cupcakes can be customized for really any occasion or holiday.  Next weekend is St. Patricks day– so how about these?

…and in the middle:

My thoughts:  So fun to serve….so easy to make….why THANK YOU Betty Crocker!!!  Enjoy!

  1. How Clever. I LOVE it. I will be using filled cupcakes a lot. I wonder if you could apply this to cake pop? That would be fun. Perhaps in cakepops, I should use an infuser and inject these inside.
