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
Black edible marker
These are the steps:
Roll out green gum paste.
Use a circle cutter to cut out a piece.
Roll out a pink ball and a blue ball out of gum paste.
Brush some water in the center of the green circle and stick the balls here.
Fold the green circle in half and pinch the corners.
Brush some more water in the corners to really stick them together.
Use a black edible marker to draw all the facial details on these two balls.
To make vines, roll out thin “rope-like” pieces out of green gum paste.
Wrap the “rope” around a paintbrush.
Now, just slide the vines out of your paintbrush.
Make as many as you need.
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 🙂
Well, I hope you enjoyed this tutorial.
Happy caking everyone!
