Use this step-by-step tutorial to make a cute two peas in a pod cake topper. Great for baby showers! You can make it with fondant or gum paste.

Today, I will be taking a BREAK from Fall/Thanksgiving posts and sharing this CUTE two peas in a pod cake.

This cake is a fine example of CUTENESS x 1 MILLION! lol!

I made a boy pea and a girl pea but if you already know the gender of the babies, you can make them the same color.

Also, if you make a SMALLER version of these two peas in a pod cake toppers, you can easily use them as cupcake toppers too.

I have seen MANY variations of these pods…Some looked easy and some looked downright complicated.

This one is very simple and even if you are a BEGINNER, you can make this cake.
