Gender reveal cake

Around here, we've seen our share of fun gender reveal cakes (and other ideas for the big reveal)—but surely this one takes the, ahem, cake.

A recent YouTube video uploaded by a family friend shows Cher Lair, who is already a mom to six boys, cutting into a gender reveal cake. Her boys look on as she slices into the confection, saying under her breath, "It's going to be blue."

However, she just about passes out when she discovers the filling inside is actually.... PINK! In fact, she screams with excitement and falls back into the arms of loved ones. Talk about unforgettable moments caught on tape!

In the comments, the friend who uploaded the video wrote a bit more about the background: "So, the doctor wrote down the gender on the envelope, the friend who shot the video went to doc office and got the envelope, came back to my house to open it (I had cake batter waiting to be dyed the correct color). We opened the envelope together, I put the dye in the cake, and we had a party that night for the family and friends to see what it was."

Evidently, the special moment struck a chord: It has more than 120,000 views since April 7. See the fun gender reveal for yourself here:
