What a joy it is to celebrate every new little one that comes our way. After trying my hand at the sleeping baby cake a couple times, my imagination went wild with ideas of how to take it to the next step. As my good friend Cheryl's baby shower was approaching, the Peapod theme seemed like a sweet way to celebrate this little boy who has yet to be seen by all of us. For two weeks as we planned this, everytime I closed my eyes I was constructing it. When I finally began decorating it, it was complete in less than 2 hours. This was so much fun because each "pea" is a ball shaped cake of a different flavor, so guests could choose between carrot, chocolate, and red velvet cake. Mmm-mmm-good!
I have to tell you that I was a little scared to deliver this cake. This is another one of those cakes that the recipient is either going to love it or really be mad at someone. As it turned out, she was a really great sport and laughed alot about it. It gave the office something to have fun with while celebrating another birthday for a wonderful friend!
