"Sweet Pea Baby Shower Cake" - 3/11

"Sweet Pea" was the theme for this baby shower cake.  It is a two-tier vanilla cake with vanilla buttercream filling.  I used white fondant to cover both tiers and four different shades of green to create the random stripes and polka-dots.  The baby is made of gumpaste/fondant (my first one!) and the peas in the peapods are green candy-coated chocolates, kind of like Sixlets only bigger.  I decided to do a monogram using the baby's initials and trimmed it with tiny buttercream dots.  One of my favorites!!  I just love how the design came together so nicely:)
