If It Were Up to the Cake...

Our friends James and Amy Bloom have a tradition of baking a cake that is half blue and half pink. The cake is then frosted and placed on a turning plate. The father-to-be is charged to turn the plate and the expectant mother then cuts a slice.


Whatever color she cuts determines whether or not they are having a boy or a girl. Yes, another old wives' tale. Yet, for the Bloom family, it has been 100% accurate. So we decided to see if it will hold true for those outside of their relations.



And the result? Well, it appears that we're having a boy. Thanks James and Amy for making the cake and having us over. We will hopefully find out on Thursday at our sonogram what we're having so we'll let you know if the cake method worked!

I cannot wait to hear on Thursday! Not to disappoint your friends and their cute method, but of course I hope it's a girl! :)

Ryan's official guess: BOY
Sarah's official guess: GIRL (I wanted to say boy, but Ryan took it.)

PS How did you get Bryce to agree to take these pictures? The last one is very cute of you two.

Hey! I found your blog on James and Amy's. How exciting...a boy! They did that for us a few weeks ago and we cut a pink piece! Guess we have to wait until the end of October to see if its correct. Can't wait to hear what you're having! By the way, who is your doctor?
