Two Peas in a Pod


Babies are great!

I have 2 babies (okay they are quickly breaking free of the “baby” status as they run amok through my house), but really babies are great.  And TWO babies – well that’s got to be more fun, right?

A friend of mine is having twins.  For a small baby shower, I was asked to make her a cake with the theme “Two Peas in a Pod”, since everything would be green (not sharing the gender of the babies … plus it adds to a variety of clothes in various colours).

So naturally I made a pair of Peas nestled next to one another in a pod, smiling happily.

If only real vegetables were this happy.

To break the monotone of green I also added yellow flowers throughout the cake.  I figured that was as generic of a baby colour I could get after green.

The cake itself is a white cake with a Swiss meringue vanilla buttercream, my favorite filling.

I finished off the cake banner with a simple black gourmet edible marker.  Viola!



About Leah

Hello, I'm Maria Leah. I'm a pretty average novice baker & most recently cake designer. The funny thing is I haven't taken a cake decorating class - yet. Instead I watch way too much "Ace of Cakes", "Cake Boss" & anything really off Food Network, that one day I thought to myself, "why don't I make a cake"? And so I did...One cake, turned into 2, which turned into 3...which turned into cake and cupcake orders for my family, friends and now people who are really taking an interest in my work. Photos of my progress followed, my skills started to sharpen...and my supportive friends insisted on more cakes and what you have now is me blogging about all my baking and designing adventures - the failures and the sweet success. Enjoy. ML
