Baby Shower Cake

Pea Pod Cake
Christina asked if we would make a baby shower cake for Chantelle.  She sent a few ideas and we picked the Pea Pod cake idea.   Orrin and Chantelle have been calling their little one 'Baby P' for many months, so it seemed to fit well!!  Chantelle's favorite flavor of cake is yellow cake and the frosting is butter cream with fondant accents.

The baby pea pod, leaves, flowers, and vines are all hand made out of fondant and completely edible, except for the center and stem of the little flowers.

The stripes and spots are fondant placed onto two buttercream frosted layers and the writing is buttercream.

 The shower was really nicely put together by Christina and other family members and we really enjoyed being a part of it also! I actually won a drawing!!

 For my students that watch the my blog regularly: the board is two cardboard disks taped together and wrapped with freezer paper, with ribbon hot glued around.  The cake pans are sizes 6" for the top and 8" for the bottom.  

Thanks for looking!
