* {{Leitmotif}}: The Cake Babies actually have one. That goofy song from the movie, {{Brazil}}. It comes up when the babies enjoy raising a little....uh....''Tartarus''.

** 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]].

* HalfHumanHybrid: Averted. Both Mr. and Mrs. Cake are not pure Earth Ponies, but it doesn't show to look at them. Also, the children are either a Unicorn or a Pegasus, not a mix of both. Given that there are only three hybrid ponies in Equestria, the PhysicalGods Celestia, Luna, and Cadance this is presumably standard.

Pinkie Pie tries several things to make them laugh, including peek-a-boo and a stand-up comedy routine, but the only thing that seems to work is dropping a sack of flour over herself, which the babies find hilarious. She has difficulty feeding them (since they won't eat like an older pony would) and getting them bathed, but truly realizes she's in over her head when their diapers need to be changed. When Twilight Sparkle stops by and offers assistance, Pinkie is grateful at first, but becomes insulted when Twilight innocently mentions that she figured Pinkie would need help--after all, some ponies aren't up to taking care of babies. After sternly showing Twilight the door, Pinkie Pie goes from playful Pinkie to responsible Pinkie: no more fun and games.
