There’s a new modern tradition that’s come about with the advent of sonograms that let expectant parents know the sex of their baby.
Some parents-to-be will have the doctor seal in an envelope a card with the sex of their baby written on it… without telling the parents. Then the parents-to-be, or their friends and family, will give the envelope to a baker. The baker will then make the inside of the cake either blue or pink depending if it’s a boy or girl.
At a baby shower or a gender party the cake will be cut and everyone will learn the sex of the baby together, including the parents-to-be!
What a very modern, clever idea!
