two peas in a cake

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
Black edible marker

These are the steps:

Step 1:
Roll out green gum paste.

When you your two peas in a pod has dried and hardened, place it on top of the cake and arrange these vines near the corners.

I also added little red fondant  flowers because they looked cute 🙂
