Pea in a pod cake

This was a chocolate chocolate chocolate cake. I love making cakes for baby showers; everyone is just so excited. Themes for baby showers are seldom "cutsie" now; the sophisticated Moms-to-be like contemporary ambiance, and request for educational gifts.  I have seen baby showers with very interesting and creative themes like baseball theme, library theme, a high tea affair, carnival/circus theme, backyard BBQ theme, daiper theme and my favorite; girly theme with handbags all over.  This was a "pea-in-a pod" themed party where everyone wore green with a peas in pod decorations all over.

"If one feels the need of something grand, something infinite, something that makes one feel aware of God, one need not go far to find it. I think that I see something deeper, more infinite, more eternal than the ocean in the expression of the eyes of a little baby when it wakes in the morning and coos or laughs because it sees the sun shining on its cradle."
-- Vincent van Gogh
