My friends are going to learn the gender of their baby via cake. Help me come up with ideas for decorating this high-stakes confection!

My friends are having their first child and thought it would be fun to learn the gender of their new baby along with all their friends and family. I will have an envelope from the doctor with the baby's sex inside, and will be ordering a cake from a bakery.
The inside of the cake will be pink or blue, as appropriate. The frosting will be some other neutral color, like yellow. It will be a small, probably round cake, for about 15 people.
For the outside of the cake, I'd like to have a fun decoration or theme. I don't want to spend a ton of money on an elaborately-decorated cake. I was thinking more of something I could add to a simply frosted cake, or something to go on top.
The couple are both academics, so I was thinking of a little owl, or something like that, maybe? Any creative ideas very welcome!
