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!
