When you’re planning a gender reveal party, you and your partner probably spend most of your prep time hashing out the reveal. That makes sense. It is what people came to see. You don’t want your exploding ball not to explode or find out in the aftermath that your partner picked out the wrong piñata at the store. It’s awkward to explain that you’re actually having a girl, not a boy. The gender reveal was incorrect. If you’re using a cake to reveal your baby’s gender or you’re serving cake as dessert, you want to make sure that your icy confection is probably dressed for the party, too.
Cake toppers can add a lot to cake, like multiple inches in height and width. If you opted for a simply decorated cake or baked one from scratch, you can dress it up with one of the best gender reveal cake toppers. These toppers add a little extra pizazz—mostly because they are coated in glitter. They’re hard to miss. They usually ask a question like “Boy or Girl?” or say something vague and cute like “Oh baby!” We found two toppers for full-size cakes and a topper set for cupcakes. Check out our picks below.
