Two Peas in a Pod Cake

3 Comments

Last week I had the wonderful opportunity to make a baby shower cake for my best friend’s aunt aka the talented lady who designed my logo!

This cake has been by far one of my favorite cakes to make. The mother-to-be is having twins and requested a “two peas in a pod” theme. I was ecstatic to design this cake as I’ve never done a cake for twins.

This was a two tier vanilla cake with a vanilla buttercream. I covered both cakes with white fondant and decorated the bottom tier with a green ombre technique. I did this by spending about 83678 hours on cutting out little circles of different shades of green fondant. I used a bit of water to attach the circles on to the cake.

Here’s a fun fact about the cake; I had one whole day to make the entire cake. Now if you don’t know how my cake making process goes, I basically bake the cakes, let them cool overnight, and then do all the frosting and fondant the next day. If there’s a cake topper I need to make, I usually make it at least a couple days before I bake the cakes, so that it can dry and harden completely. I happened to be quite busy during the exact week the cake was due, so I only had one day to bake the cakes, decorate, and make the cake topper. Thankfully I pushed through, and was able to finish in time!

Getting back to the cake design, I had to make a two peas in a pod cake topper. This cake topper was so adorable and went with the whole theme so well.

I also made a couple of babyish items with some extra fondant. The vines and flowers I added made the whole cake complete.

The baby shower itself was the cutest thing ever and I was able to get a few shots of it.

There was wonderful food and a very pretty dessert table.

All of the decorations were perfect and soo cute!

This cake was a whole lot of fun and I’m so glad I got the chance to make it!

  1. This is the CUTEST.CAKE.EVER. !! Omgosh!! I am smiling SO big looking at these pictures of your cake! The rest are cute, too, but your cake!! The little PEAS!! AH!! I’m still so very, very, impressed with how awesome you decorate, and I’m so glad you keep at it! Did you do the entire cake from just a vision in your head?? You’ve got *so* much detail on this – the little bottle and blocks, the vines around the pea pod, their little hats! And so much patience to do all those dots! Just, WOW! Did the mom see it beforehand? Did she just about faint from cuteness overload when she saw it?? LOL Her babies are just going to loveeeeeee how cute their first cake was! I hope you never abandon this blog, even if you only post when you make a cake. You’re incredible! 🙂 ❤ (This is the same person who posted on your Harry Potter Cake. 🙂 )
