Gender Reveal Cupcakes

I saw a picture of cupcakes like these about a year ago, and have been waiting for chance to make some. The purpose of these cupcakes is to reveal the gender of baby you are having.
When you bite into these delish little treats you are either shown blue or pink filling which of course reveals wether you are having a girl or boy.
In this case, of course the gender is girl. These were to reveal the gender of my third baby. These were chocolate cupcakes with vanilla almond cream cheese filling. Covered in chocolate ganache.

Cute textured cake

This is one of those cakes that I had been wanting to try for awhile. It's a simple technique with buttercream, but I love the finished look.

It was a perfect day to try this cake, because I had only a couple hours to make the whole thing, from start to finish.
I made a quick ruffled fondant flower to add some fun color. The cake is yummy moist white cake, with vanilla almond buttercream. Sometimes I just love doing something simple like this. The up side to this cake is it looks so much prettier than just frosting a cake. I love the cute texture this technique give the cake.
