Joint birthday cake

One of our local Facebook fans got in touch via email and said she'd been admiring our work (aw, shucks) and needed a joint birthday cake for her soon-to-be 1 year old daughter and 3 year old son.  We arranged for her to pop around and discuss some options.  As they were of opposite sexes, I wanted to use both blue and pink in the cake and Mary agreed.  However, wee Lucy wouldn't know the difference, so she got bright pink icing sandwiched between the two layers (along with raspberry jam) and the big boy got the lion's share of colour with his fully blue iced cake.  However, I felt the blue wasn't quite blue enough for my liking (a personal bugbear it seems, as everyone else thinks it's great) and so have asked for advice from others on this small dilemna.  And hope to have bluer blue icing soon...
I got a chance to use my new letter and number cutters and made a simple decoration for the top, with the beloved glitter and some extra pink glitter on a heart in the middle, coz Lucy seemed underrepresented.  And the result?  They all loved it (visually as well as the taste)...
