Celebrating good news with cake is a time-honored tradition, so it's no surprise that today's big announcement—that would be the birth of Baby Sussex—inspired a dessert-themed reaction of its own.

In case you've somehow avoided the internet/TV/interaction with any royal-obsessed humans today, here's a refresher: Prince Harry and Meghan Markle's first child was born early this morning, as reported by the royal family's Instagram accounts. (And naturally, everyone on social media is freaking out.) While we don't know the new arrival's name yet, we do know that it's a boy (and he'll likely have this official title, pending Great Grandma the queen's approval).

Stateside, New York City's famed Magnolia Bakery created a Snapchat lens just for the occasion. It generates an augmented-reality cake, complete with a frosted U.K. flag, which you then tap to reveal the baby's gender—by slicing into the cake, of course. (See it in action in the video above and download it here.)

OK, we have to admit that's pretty adorable, but will there be treats that aren't of the virtual variety? Not to worry: Magnolia will be offering special royal-baby cupcakes adorned with blue frosting and a silver crown. We'll take a dozen in Baby Sussex's honor.
