Baby Reveal Truffles


By now, you must have seen, heard, or perhaps even been to a baby reveal party.  If not, they are all-the-rage with expecting parents and basically a creative way to share the babies gender with close friends and family.  Everything from boxes stuffed with coloured balloons to be released; to cakes you cut into that are dyed either pink or blue (or maybe both if it's twins)  Fun, right?

Given my baby train has now permanently left the station, I decided that I would help one of my friends share her baby news in this new fun way.  ET is pregnant with baby #2 and I was able to convince her that we should do baby reveal treats in order to tell a small group of friends her exciting news.  
Sidenote: it also meant I was let in on the secret early and what could be more fun than that?
I decided to ignore the popular cupcake and cake trend, and opt instead for truffles.  Cheesecake truffles.  Every pregnant and non-pregnant girls weakness.


Congrats ET I couldn't be more excited for you and G.  Thanks for allowing me be in on the little secret and to help share your most wonderful news....




....it's a.....

Cheers to a healthy pregnancy!  I can't wait to meet the new soon-to-be heartbreaker.
