This weekend I went to a sex party. Actually, I went just a couple hours after church.
Sex party? Oh, yeah, it’s a shindig where friends and family gather together to find out the sex of a couple’s baby.
Get your mind out of the gutter.
Our friends Robbie and Stefanie had the sonogram on Tuesday that revealed the gender of their baby, but rather than finding out then they elected to have a party to share the news with everyone! And guess who made the cupcakes that had the hidden gender color inside?!
That’s right. Yours truly.
I love being in the know.
You tell me, which would YOU rather go to?
Anyway, it’s amazing how many people will try to get you to crack when you know something they don’t. I didn’t expect to have to stay as strong as I did…but don’t worry, I’m apparently a very good liar. Or secret-keeper. I prefer secret-keeper.
The way it all worked was the guests had to dress in the color they thought the baby would be. This is the boy group:
And if that picture didn’t give it away, I think these shoes would. Holy moly, I can’t imagine even trying to walk in these bad boys! All I see are visions of my face meeting the floor and laughter rising up all around me. Not that this is from experience…it’s just what I’ve heard from – err – a friend.
On the baking front, the cupcakes were super simple. I used a box mix for the base (chocolate fudge), and for the icing I combined 2 sticks of room temperature butter, 4 cups of powdered sugar, a box of vanilla pudding mix, and about 3-4 Tbsp of milk. Just mix til it’s the consistency you want! Then I took a paring knife and whittled out a well in 5 of the cupcakes. I used food coloring to color a little bit of the icing that would go in the wells, and then piped all of the cupcakes with the yellow-ish icing. Easy peasy!
I think they really shocked everyone on this one…I know when I was opening the sonogram envelope I thought it would say “girl” in there too! But I know that they’re just excited either way to just have a sweet little one in their lives.
So, what do you think? Would you ever have a sex party? How would you have everyone find out? I know when we have kids, Nate and I want to find out the gender together at the doctor’s office, but think it would be fun to have a party where everyone else finds out what the baby is! We’ll probably make a cake with a layer of gender-colored frosting in the middle and then everyone will find out when they cut into it 🙂
