Pea in the Pod

My Co-worker Tracy's due date is the same date as my birthday. Let's hope she hangs on until then... but Tracy is ready for this baby. Doesn't she look great! We had a celebration at work today. This cake was inspired by others I saw on cake central. The peas are FBCT's the rest is just buttercream. The black outline didn't really cooperate on the FBCT and smeared, which was annoying. Overall I'm happy with the way the cake turned out. I struggled a bit with the coloring as usual. I couldn't decide what shade of green, oh the dilemma...

My first attempt at a face wasn't a success. I changed the tip from a 4 to 2 and it worked.
