Twins Birthday Cake {Two Peas in a Pod}

Learn how to make easy twins birthday cake with two peas in a pod fondant topper. No fancy tools required. Also great for baby showers.

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.

This cake would be great for many occasions:

  • Baby’s 6 month or half birthday party.
  • Baby shower parties.
  • Pregnancy announcement parties, especially for twins or triplets.
  • Arrival of the baby party (What Mom would not like coming home from the hospital to this cake with her new bundle of joy???)

If you want this topper to dry quickly, you can use gumpaste or 50/50.

And here are the steps:

Step 1:
Roll out green fondant and use a circle cutter to cut out a piece.

Step 2:
Roll a red and blue ball (should be the same size).
Brush some water in the center of the circle and stick the two balls here.

Step 3:
Fold the circle piece and pinch the sides.

Step 4:
Use a black edible marker to draw all the facial details.
Let this air dry and harden overnight.
Your two peas in a pod cake topper is ready.

Step 5:
Let’s make vines now…
Roll thin green fondant ropes.
Wrap them around your paintbrush to create different sizes of vines.

Step 6:
Carefully, remove them from the paintbrush and place them on wax paper.
Let them air dry and harden.

Step 7:
Bake your cake, fill it and frost it in mango frosting.
Stick some green sprinkles all over the cake.
Place your two peas in a pod topper on top of the cake.
Stick the green vines and little red flowers.
And you are done!
