Pregnant couple laugh at gender reveal gone wrong as bakery accidentally messes up order

Arsenal goalkeeper Matt Turner does unique gender reveal on football pitch

Nowadays, gender reveals are a highlight of pregnancy for many people. They often take place through a planned event or a cute video, though plenty of viral clips show us that they don't always go to plan.

One couple's event went wrong when they decided to reveal the gender of their baby by cutting into a cake, only for the bakery to forget to put the correct colour inside.

In a TikTok, Alyssa Quintos ( @alyssa_quintos ) was sat beside her partner as the pair held wine glasses upside down to cut through the white and grey iced cake in front of them.

Despite the buildup, the couple appeared confused when the contents of the sponge cake was revealed, as they discovered there was no pink or blue colour inside - and so still had no idea what gender their baby is.

Though the two saw the funny side to the mistake as they couldn't help but laugh at the bakery's mishap.

"I think they gave us the wrong cake! It's yellow," they joked.

For the post caption, Quintos wrote: "When the bakery has one job."
