Your next gender reveal may very well include blue and pink stuffed Cheddar Bay Biscuits from Red Lobster. While you, unfortunately, cannot order blue and pink cheddar biscuits from any Red Lobster locations (yet), the seafood chain shared how you can make the famous biscuits at home!

First, let’s refresh on how gender reveals became a thing.

According to Business Insider, gender reveal parties began in 2008 by a mom blogger, Jenna Karvunidis. Jenna announced the gender of her daughter with a cake that was stuffed with pink icing and from there the trend picked up.

As the gender reveal party trend continues nearly 13 years later, people are always looking for creative new ways to celebrate the joyful occasion with family and friends – and thankfully Red Lobster is here to help.
