The BIG Reveal in Tennessee

Will it be a boy or girl??
We were invited to Tennessee for a "Revealing" party for our good friends, Brent and Tonya, who are pregnant with their first child. They are a special couple to us and we decided we should be their for this monumental occasion. Both Jim and I were in their wedding 4 years ago, we consider them part of our family.

Of course, Tonya's OB doctor knew if it was a boy or girl. Then the results were given to the baker who was going to make the cupcakes, one of which would have the pink or blue filling in the center to designate boy or girl. The cupcakes were put together to make it "look" like a sheet cake. Here's a picture of Tonya getting ready to hand out the cupcakes.
We all waited until they were all given out, 42 cupcakes, and then we all bit into them at the same time. Amazingly enough Tonya got the one with the "special" center...and it was BLUE!
Brent and Tonya will be having a boy this coming December! What a wonderful blessing for them, we are so happy. And of course they would have been just as happy if they were to have a girl too!
Brent and Tonya...we were so blessed to be there with you for this special day!

Life is good!

Hugs,

Elaine

I've never heard of a revealing party: what a great idea.

Congratulations to your friends.

My son and daughter-in-law did something similar for the family a couple weeks ago, but my daughter-in-law made the cake, decorated it with fondant pink and blue ribbons and question marks, had the grandpas cut the cake and pull the piece out to find BLUE filling. After 5 granddaughters (2 of whom belong to these kids), we were very excited and everyone screamed in delight. It was really fun.
Happy for your friends.

I have never heard of a revealing party! Of course in my day (a thousand years ago, it was) we took what we got, there was no way of telling beforehand what you were having.

I have never heard of a revealing party either but it's a clever idea! It sounds like even the mom and dad to be didn't know.

Elaine, I wonder if my sister was the baker? She told me she does this sort of thing all the time...oh and she is in Tennessee..Millington TN. She and her husband make the most awesome cakes, donuts, pies, etc. Anyway, what a special time to share with friends and family. Thank you for sharing with us.
