I made a pea pod cake a little while ago and I had so much fun with it (there is a pic in my pics). I took my 6" pan and cut out an oval shape with pointy ends a little smaller than the top of the pan. I just made my little peas, stuck them in the center and shaped the pod around them. Trial and error works best! It is very easy to do. Have fun with them! icon_biggrin.gif

I did one recently for my sister who is having twins. One problem that I came across was that I wanted the baby peas to peek out and if I made the pod too big or deep, they sunk too far down. Another tip that I wish I'd known before hand is, if you can, make the pod from one piece of fondant or gumpaste, rather than two. I made mine out of two pieces (Each shape was shaped like half of a circle), I 'glued' them together, dried them and they still fell apart when I put them up on top, I think the peas were too heavy to hold the seam so it had me panicking at the last minute.

Best wishes with your cake!!


Jen, your cake is adorable, as is your pea pod icon_smile.gif
