Finding out you are pregnant is probably one of the most exciting moments in your life. Finding out whether you're having a boy or a girl is just that extra special cherry on top.

These Gender Reveal Cupcakes are the cutest way to find out something so important to you and your partner - also the most delicious!


  • 3 cups all purpose flour
  • 2 cups sugar
  • 1 tablespoon baking powder
  • 3/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup (2 sticks) unsalted butter, cut into tablespoons
  • 1 cup milk
  • 4 large eggs
  • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • Food coloring

Cream Cheese Frosting

  • 8 ounces cream cheese, room temperature
  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter, room temperature
  • 1 cup powdered sugar
  • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • Blue & Pink gel food coloring


Preheat oven to 400 degrees.

Add flour, sugar, baking powder and salt to the standing mixer and start it slowly mixing.

Add in the butter to the mixer while it blends.

In a separate bowl, mix together your milk, eggs, vanilla a little bit before adding it to the cake mix.

Once it is all blended, separate out about 1/3 - 1/2 of the batter into a separate bowl and add a few drops of food coloring to make it the color of the gender.

Pour the batter into a 13 x 9 baking pan and bake for 12 to 15 minutes.

When it is done and cooled, use a small heart cookie cutter to cut out little hearts from your cake.

Fill half of your cupcake up with batter and add in the little hearts to the center, topping with more of the white batter.

Bake for 14-18 minutes.

While it bakes, prepare your icing by mixing the cream cheese in a bowl with a hand mixer until smooth. Add the butter gradually until smooth and then add the powdered sugar and vanilla until combined.

Use a skewer to put a bead of food coloring gel along each side of the icing bag, one side pink and the other blue.

Fill up the bag with the cream cheese icing and then the gel will mix into a swirl pattern as you circle your cupcakes.

Whether you know the gender of the baby and are surprising your family with it, or you want to help out a friend who gave you the results and the task of letting everyone know, this is the perfect way to let everyone know the happy news!
