Pregnancy Announcement Food/Celebration Dish?

Hello All,

I just found out that one of my professor's is expecting and I would like to make something for our seminar next week to share with her and the other grad students (she leads one of my grad seminars btw so I'm not trying to gain brownie points, we're just a small tight knit group).

Is there a 'traditional' dessert or some kind of food that is made for such an announcement? If not she is from Kansas and I was wondering if there were any 'authentic' Kansas originated desserts.

Any feedback is much appreciated!

  1. I think this is a nice gesture, but I would make sure she is not suffering from morning sickness before trying to spring a surprise dessert on her. Some pregnant women have trouble eating without nausea. I'd hold back a bit on this, until I knew how she was feeling.
