Sweet launches gender reveal cakes and cupcakes

Gender reveal parties have been trending for a while, but spilling your secret is about to get a little, well, sweeter.  Sweet is launching reveal cakes and cupcakes tomorrow. The boutique bakery will put pink or blue icing inside the goodies—and you can choose the cake flavor (they suggest vanilla buttercream to display the color best), icing, fondant topper, and any lettering. Consider toppers inspired by Make Way for Ducklings or the Red Sox for your future Bostonian. You could even bring in your ultrasound photo, and they’ll use it to make a custom topper. (Which could be cute or scary; we’re not sure.) Sweet gets its dairy products from Thatcher Farms in Milton, and they source other ingredients locally whenever possible from places like Carlisle Honey and Cape Cod’s Fairland Farm, so your baby can be a locavore from the start. Reveal cakes start at $45, and reveal cupcakes are $4.25 each ($5.25 with a custom topper). sweetcupcakes.com
