Sweet Maria and Josh from Two Peas & Their Pod is having a baby! They will soon be welcoming their first child into the world, a sweet little boy. A few friends from around the blog-o-sphere decided to get together and host a virtual baby shower! Happy Baby Shower guys!
To make this sweet little baby pea pod, I simply baked two cakes in these wonderful little pans.*
After baking, I removed one of the mini cakes from the pan and chilled in the freezer for about one hour. Once the cake is nice and firm I carved out the “pea pod” shape. With the other cake I made cake pops. The cake pops are covered in tinted buttercream that I just heated to get a runnier consistency. I simply dipped them in the frosting and let them dry. I used the same buttercream (in its original form, not heated) to cover the pea pod, simply using a small offset spatula to smooth out the frosting as much as possible.
And here is where I keep it real folks.
Maria is the QUEEN of cookies. She makes the most amazing cookie creations! I wanted to add some cookies to the interior of her cake so it was extra personalized for her.
Then managed to overcook the cookies and undercook the cake. It was not pretty. #bakingfail
But now I have been sufficiently challenged and I WILL make it happen. Maybe for baby number two???
