Anyone done it?
Was it right?

Did mine the other day and it came out boy. Very red/pink.

Of course it doesn't work. it is coincidence. Cabbages do not grow with some sort of penis detection device built in.

Mine stayed purple, and I'm having a boy according to my 16wk scan x

Promised to update, so here goes. The red cabbage test suggested I was having a girl (tested twice) and... I am currently laid in bed snuggling and feeding my 3 day old... BOY!

This is the funniest thread I've read in ages. Cabbagey-piss soup and cabbagey penis detectors... Priceless grin

Congratulations emalushka!

I did the bicarbonate of soda test - pee in a pot and add a spoon of bicarbonate of soda. If it fizzes up its a boy, if not its a girl. It worked for me but there was always a 50/50 chance!
