Having a baby is always an exciting time. Family is constantly asking or wondering if you are having a girl or a boy.

The cake pops are covered in a white candy coating and decorated with pink & blue sprinkles. When your family and friends bite into one of the Gender Reveal Cake Pops, the inside will be either pink or blue cake to reveal the sex of your baby.
If you don’t know what cake pops are, they are basically cake balls covered in a candy coating and served on sticks. To make Gender Reveal Cake Pops, you need to bake a pink or blue cake and allow it to cool. Then you crumble the cake into fine crumbs and add in frosting. Form the mixture into balls and place in the fridge to chill for an hour. Then dip a lollipop stick into the melted wafers and insert it into the cake ball. Each ball gets fully dipped into the melted wafers. Before the candy coating hardens, decorate with pink and blue sprinkles. The Gender Reveal Pops are a fun, kid friendly dessert that is perfect for a gender reveal party.
