FARGO -- Darla Julin thought it was a prank when an employee of her bakery, Fantasies in Frosting, called her to say a producer from ABC’s The Chew called Wednesday evening.

“I thought, ‘Yeah, right,’” Julin said.

But the producer followed up with an email request asking for permission to use photos of gender-reveal cakes from the bakery’s Instagram account.

Julin wasn’t interviewed for the show and didn’t get further details about the segment, other than that the cakes will be featured on today’s show that airs at noon on WDAY.

Fantasies in Frostings, 4501 15th Ave. S., bakes cakes for all occasions, but Julin said gender-reveal cakes are really popular right now.

She said they’ve had a lot of fun decorating cakes with themes like “bikinis or board shorts?” and “heels or wheels?”

Julin is excited to be featured, but said it still hasn’t really sunk in.

“I’m really interested to see what it’s all about. We won’t be able to watch it, of course, because we’re working and don’t have a tv here. We’re telling everyone to record it for us,” she said. “And we’re telling all our fans on social media to watch it.”

Julin posts photos of her cakes daily on social media. The bakery has a following of 5,540 on Facebook and another 924 on Instagram.
