Pea in the Pod Baby Shower Cake

I thought this cake turned out so adorable!  The client was looking for a "pea in the pod" design for a baby shower, so I came up with this idea.  I created a simple design on the top and bottom tiers of the cake in the client's colors of mint green, darker green and chocolate brown (a pretty unisex palette since the expectant couple wasn't finding out the sex of the baby).  I made the baby and pea pod out of fondant for the top of the cake.  Then I added some fondant leaves and vines, plus I piped some white sweet pea flowers to add to the baby feel.  The cake was vanilla with strawberry filling and cookies and cream cake with chocolate cream filling.  Hope everything turned out ok!  Congratulations!
