I had a blast making these two peas in a pod.

They are great to use as cake or cupcake toppers for baby showers.

I made a pink ball and a blue ball. But, you can make 2 pink balls or 2 blue balls if the sex of the babies is already known :)

To make two peas in a pod, you will need the following supplies:

Green gum paste
Light blue gum paste
Pink gum paste
Rolling pin
Circle cutter
