Surprise-Inside Cookies - Baby Gender Reveal!

A few months ago, I made set of baby gender reveal cookies for a friend of mine (you can see those here). This time, I’m the one who’s expecting, so I made a set for myself! Watch until the end to see if our little bun in the oven (or should I say cookie?!) is a boy or a girl!
