The two foals are first introduced in the episode Baby Cakes as newborn foals. Where they are visited by Twilight Sparkle and her friends in the hospital. However, they are much surprised to find out that Pound Cake is a male Pegasus and that Pumpkin Cake is female Unicorn, but despite the fact that both their parents are Earth ponies. Though, Mr Cake explains by referring to distantly related Unicorns and Pegasi in both his and and Mrs Cake's family trees. Rarity,Rainbow Dash, Twilight Sparkle, all warn and caution the Cakes by that young Unicorns can exhibit bursts magical power, and young Pegasi can be quite a hooful once they learn how to use their wings.
The next scene shows them playing with Pinkie Pie on what she called it their "Monthiversary", despite them being only one month old. Pound Cake and Pumpkin Cake, are already able to run around the house. This is actually true with real life young ponies, who can walk mere hours after being born. That same day the Cakes are in much need of a babysitter, and after, Rarity, Rainbow Dash, Applejack,Fluttershy,and Twilight Sparkle all decline the offer, they then ask Pinkie Pie reluctantly to take care of Pound and Pumpkin Cake, while Mr and Mrs Cake are off delivering a catering order.
