Before we dive into the decorating process, let's first talk about the ingredients for the cake itself. According, here's what you'll need:

  • 1 cup of water
  • 1 cup of vegetable oil
  • Butter or vegetable oil for greasing the pan

Making the Cake

1. Preheat your oven to 350°F (175°C). Grease and flour three 9-inch round cake pans.

2. In a medium bowl, whisk together the milk, water, and vegetable oil. Set aside.

3. In a separate bowl, mix the yellow cake mix according to the instructions on the package.

4. Divide the yellow cake mix among the prepared cake pans and pour the liquid mixture over the top.

5. Bake for 25-30 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean.

6. Allow the cakes to cool in the pans for 10 minutes, then remove them to a wire rack to cool completely.

Now that we have our cakes ready, let's move on to the fun part - decorating them like a gender reveal cake!

Decorating the Gender Reveal Cake

1. Arrange the vanilla wafers in a circular pattern on a piece of parchment paper. This will serve as the base of our cake.

2. Place the yellow cake on top of the wafers.

3. Sprinkle the pink sugar on half of the yellow cake and the blue sugar on the other half.

4. Once the sugar has set, carefully peel off the top layer of the cake and replace it with the white cake mix, making sure to keep the sugar layers underneath.

5. Cover the cake with plastic wrap and freeze for at least 2 hours to set the frosting.

And there you have it! A beautifully decorated Surprise on the Inside Gender Reveal Cake that's sure to impress your guests. Enjoy your baking and happy decorating!
