* SuperpowerfulGenetics: Unicorn and Pegasus traits can manifest in the children of two Earth Ponies, even if said ancestors are several generations removed. This appears to be particularly true with Mrs. Cake's Pegasus ancestry. It's described as being her "[[http://www.wolframalpha.com/input/?i=great+aunt%27s+second+cousin+twice+removed great aunt's second cousin twice removed]]," which would require her genes to travel three generations ''back in time'' and then cross over a relationship-by-marriage to reach Mrs. Cake. On top of that, for babies, they're a ''lot'' stronger than they should be. For example, school-age unicorn filly Sweetie Belle doesn't learn to use magic until season four. And ''other'' than the levitation we see most unicorns using, your average unicorn, as explained in [[Recap/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagicS1E6BoastBusters "Boast Busters"]], can do ''one'' thing in line with their special talent -- at this point that phasing trick should be ''impossible.''

Added DiffLines:

* BrainyBaby: Pumpkin Cake and Pound Cake are surprisingly intelligent for a pair of foals that were just ''born recently''.
** Pound quickly learns how to fly and Pumpkin has already started using her magic which makes the crib useless for keeping them in.
** When Pinkie has her emotional breakdown, Pound and Pumpkin are quick to realize that she's become very sad and decide to cheer her up by covering themselves in flour.

** Rainbow Dash, Rarity and Twilight mention at the beginning of the episode that Unicorn and Pegasus foals can manifest their respective abilities very suddenly. Take a guess what happens at the end of the episode.

* GettingCrapPastTheRadar: The explanation of how two earth ponies could have a pegasus and a unicorn for offspring. While it is HandWaved as them having distant relatives who were a pegasus and unicorn respectively, Cup Cake's distant pegasus relative wasn't actually related to her by blood at all. Mr. Cake's darting eyes and actually ''asking'' if that made sense [[YourCheatingHeart only makes it more suspicious]].
