Boy or Girl?

Gender reveal baby showers where Mom and Dad fill everyone in on their baby’s sex is at an all-time high.  Some parents are asking the doctor to write down the baby’s sex on a note card in a sealed envelope.  They then hand that envelope to the baker, who then makes a cake that’s gender neutral on the outside and either pink or blue on the inside.  Guests of the baby shower then make predictions before the big reveal and when Mom and Day cut the cake, everyone finds out what their expecting.
