Boy or girl? Gender reveal parties a fun way to share the big news

CINCINNATI, OH (FOX19) - Is it a boy or a girl?

Well, let's slice the cake or bite into a cake pop!

Instead of just simply telling people or posting something on Facebook, the new trend in parenting are gender reveal parties.

That's when the expecting parents -- who have already found out the baby's gender from an ultrasound -- host a party to tell others the exciting news.

Lisa Ebbert from Cupcake Crazy in Kenwood has some dessert options including cakes, cake pops and other goodies.

These parties are a great alternative to the traditional baby shower or even for a second child.
