He’s here! He’s here! He’s finally here!!

Not that I was glued to the TV watching the royal baby’s departure from the hospital live or anything…

Who am I kidding, I got up before the sun to watch the royal wedding – of course I wanted a glimpse at the new prince!

I already celebrated the royal baby fetus-style with my ultrasound cookies, but I wanted to make him a little something for his big arrival too. Of course, we didn’t know he was a “he” until the end, but royal gender reveal cupcakes seemed appropriate!

I chose dark blue crowns perfect for a little prince, with a fancy damask liners (available here) and a royal purple icing. Perfect for a little prince!

  3. Grease an 8×8 pan. Spoon the dark blue batter into the pan. Bake as directed for 8×8 pans.
  4. Once the 8×8 pan has cooled, use a crown cookie cutter or template to cut out mini blue crowns.
  5. Line a muffin pan with cupcake liners. Place a small amount of uncolored batter in each liner. Place one crown in each cupcake liner, all facing the same direction. Scoop the uncolored batter all around and on top of the crown, so it is not visible. Bake as directed for your box mix (bake at the lower end of the cupcake cooking time). Cool.

These cupcakes are totally adorable! But I do not understand all he hoopla over this baby. I think a lot of Americans are more excited than the British.

Well, I like all things royal couple, I guess – it is kind of a neat, historical event :) I heard that this is the first time there have been 3 living heirs to the British throne since 1894 (3 generations anyway)! Kinda cool :)

I know, me too! I was hoping we would find out when he left the hospital, but no such luck :)

Oh my gosh Jennifer, I knew you would have some kick ass cupcake up your sleeve. This is awesome. I was glued to that TV all day! Such amazing memories. Adorable as always, and I have yet to make one of these cool cakes. One day….

There is something cool about being born as the next heir to the throne. It’s very storybook. Your surprise cupcakes make me want to invest in more mini cookie cutters. Was this crown a cutter or did you have to hand cut it?

Reply

24 Jennifer July 25, 2013 at 8:16 am

I had to handcut – I didn’t have any crown cutters on hand! Amazon has a decent selection of mini cutters :)

Aww these are so sweet. So happy for them. One of the fun things about living in Europe was watching the doings of royals . This gets much better media coverage there and every royal european wedding/funeral is televised. Always glued to those along side my mother in law.

What fun! I love all of these gender reveal ideas that are so popular now. :) Ultra sounds were iffy when I had my “kids”, 25 and 20 years ago. Too many people back then thought they were getting one flavor and ended up surprised with another. :)

Reply

36 Jennifer July 27, 2013 at 8:34 pm

My mom said that she never even had an ultrasound with me! (I’m 30) That is crazy to me, especially since I’ve had 4 already, and will have several more before it is all over! In fact, I have another on Tuesday :) But, so far, two ultrasounds have confirmed “girl,” but I still might ask on Tuesday, just to be sure ;)
