Two Peas in a Pod Cake

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.
