I've done a diaper cake before that you can see here. I also was a guest blogger about it over at Home Based Parties where I gave a step by step tutorial.
Well, sadly, I haven't had the opportunity to make another diaper cake since then, but this weekend I helped with a shower for a new friend who is having a baby girl!
Yahoo! I get to do something girly! So I asked the hostess about color schemes, etc. she said that they weren't doing the traditional baby pink. I've also peeked at the nursery, which was mostly all white.
So, that left me wide open... the hostess suggested yellow, and I went with that, adding the turqouise and hot pink.
I have already been working on the hair bows (which I will tell you about in another post) so I knew I wanted to include them. The top cake layer has three baby headbands around it. The flowers all have hair clips on the back and clip right onto the headbands.
I embroidered the baby's name of one of the wide ribbons and it went around the bottom cake layer:
For the layer above that I embroidered "Welcome."The mommy-to-be told me that when she takes the cake apart she will use the ribbon to make a ribbon board to hold all the hair bows/flowers on.
The rubber duckies were the only only thing needed. I wished the little bubbly looking decor was blue instead of yellow- cause then it would look like bubbles!
(sigh) I have way too much fun making these, and I can't wait to do another one!
I love having that mirror there- you can see front and back at once!
My friend, Rosslyn made some yummy and cute cupcakes that color coordinated with the diaper cake:
Here you can see them together:
