"Surprise! Its a....?" How baby gender reveal cakes work, from Ontario Bakery (also in Rancho Cucamonga)


Since our family started Ontario Bakery (now also in Rancho Cucamonga) almost 50 years ago, baby showers have changed. While cakes have always been a staple of the baby shower, in the old days, the gender of the baby was always a mystery.
Nowadays, most couples know the gender of their baby after the 4 month ultrasound, and many choose a custom cake that reflects a boy or girl theme.
In a new tradition, some couples are instead choosing to let the cake itself reveal the surprise of the baby's gender. In the presence of friends and family, this moment can be shared in a more personal way than in the clinical setting of a doctor's office.

Here is how our custom baby reveal cakes work:

1. The family arranges for the ultrasound to be performed, with the results kept a secret from them.

2. The results are put in a sealed envelope, which the family delivers to Ontario Bakery. You choose from our array of cake flavors and fillings.

3. Our expert bakers bake up a very special custom cake: pink for a girl, or blue for a boy. We then disguise the tell-tale cake in a gender-neutral frosting of your choice.

4. During your baby shower, you cut the cake to reveal your baby's gender in the presence of your friends and family, and then celebrate like crazy!

"The thankful receiver bears a plentiful harvest." William Blake

Thanksgiving is upon us, and here at our bakeries in Ontario and Rancho Cucamonga, the smell of pies, cakes, and other treats baking gives us a lot to be thankful for. Some folks have been posting tweets and online statuses all month documenting the things they are grateful for.

2. We are grateful for our team of dedicated employees who pull together during these busy times of year to get it done.

3. We are grateful for our family who's legacy of baking for our local community was passed on to us.

4. We are grateful for all our suppliers who make things work at the bakery.

5 Great Holiday Cakes from Ontario Bakery Rancho Cucamonga

At our bakeries in Rancho Cucamonga and Ontario, the winter holidays are one of our busiest times of year, and we know they are for most families. Between work, parties, holiday preparations, and shopping, you may not have time to bake your favorite holiday desserts from scratch.
You know that cake from a box is not the same as something special, made with a trusted family recipe, quality ingredients, and unique custom design. Let our family bakery make your holidays memorable and not stressful.
For nearly 50 years we have been baking desserts and custom cakes to remember for all occasions in the Pomona Valley. We have more than 30 cake flavors and fillings to choose from, in limitless custom designs.

Check out some of our favorite holiday cakes:

  1. Red Velvet Cake: This Southern tradition will dress your table with joyful color. For something a little different, choose red velvet cake pops. These are great for kids and reminiscent of holiday berries or Christmas bulbs in their fun, seasonal color. 
  2. Pumpkin Loaf: We call it a "bread", but it is really more like a moist and spicy cake. Come by and pick one up for your next holiday party. A baked from scratch pumpkin loaf is a great gift that shows you are thinking of your neighbors, coworkers, and associates.
  3. Carrot Cake: Our delicious carrot cake is available with your choice of walnuts, raisins or pineapple. Great with a cream cheese walnut filling!
  4. Boozey Cakes: We have several festive cake flavors of your favorite holiday drinks. Try our Italian rum cake with pineapple rum custard filling, or a cake flavored with Bailey's Irish Cream. These celebratory cakes pack some punch.
  5. Dark Chocolate Cake: You can never go wrong with a decadent dark chocolate cake, especially beloved in the winter months. Try it with our chocolate mint custard, chocolate mousse filling, or topped with festive strawberries.

How to make the perfect fondant cake- Ontario Bakery Rancho Cucamonga


“If you wait for a cake to be given to you so you will be happy- then you will be happy when someone gives you a cake. But if you buy a cake (or bake one) for yourself so you will be happy, you have found the way of happiness.”
― C. JoyBell C.


In this short video, Chris Fabos, owner of bakeries in Rancho Cucamonga and Ontario, shares his technique for making stunning fondant cakes.

A few things about fondant cakes:

  • See Ontario Bakery's method for getting the fondant the thickness and shape we need in this video.

  • Use fondant for an impeccably  smooth finish and crisp, dynamic lines on a cake.

  • Fondant is available a wide variety of bold colors. In this video we use black and hot pink for a wild zebra print birthday cake.

  • Fondant holds up well in heat, making it a great choice for outdoor events here in the Pomona Valley and other warm places.
For almost 50 years we have been making beautiful wedding cakes and all occasion cakes for people in the Pomona Valley. Come check out or website to see our selection of more than 30 cake flavors and fillings, and our compelete delivery area including Chino Hills. We would love to be a part of your next special occasion.

5 Custom Cakes you should Order from Ontario Bakery (also in Rancho Cucamonga)

"Let's face it, a nice creamy chocolate cake does a lot for a lot of people; it does for me. "
Audrey Hepburn


Ontario Bakery is known for our custom wedding cakes from Chino Hills to Pomona to Rancho Cucamonga.  Check out this short video, and you will see that our custom cakes are not just for weddings! 

When is a custom cake appropriate? Well, for a start:


  1. Birthdays, of course. A great way to honor someone you love is with a cake uniquely designed for them! Choose their favorite of our more than 30 custom cake flavors and fillings, and a theme that is perfect for them.
  2. Anniversaries, always. Choose a flavor and theme that hearkens back to that special day years ago, or something that shows the highlights of the couple's life together. They will be sure to devour but never forget this meaningful tribute. :)
  3. Thanksgiving, naturally. You don't have to do all the baking yourself. Our pies are always a hit this time of year, but why not a stunning cake centerpiece to make a real statement? We have some excellent fillings for the holidays like apple cinnamon or pineapple rum.
  4. Veteran's Day? Why not? Honor those who have served by serving up something sweet and spectacular. Choose a patriotic theme, or something personal for a service veteran in your life.
  5. Ok...um...always. We are proud to have been baking celebrations for all occasions in the Pomona Valley for almost 50 years. Make one of our family's custom cakes a part of your next special occasion.
