A couple of years ago, for my sister's baby shower, one of our family friends, Fran, made Christina the most amazing diaper cake. I mean it was AMAZING. I still don't think I have seen one like it. Anyway, it inspired me and since then, I started making them and I have to say, I just don't believe that you can have a baby shower, or a baby for that matter, without a diaper cake. I have been making and selling them a bit here and there and giving them as gifts. Here is my most recent, for a baby boy. I just love it. I think I am going to start an etsy shop or a website but I need a good name.....My approach to diaper cakes it that yes, the diapers will be used, but that the cake should match the nursery so it can be a decoration in the nursery for at least a few weeks, so I never use newborn diapers.
I am apparently making a bunch of Dr. Suess themed cakes for my other sister's shower next weekend, will post pics of those then.
And no, I still don't have an anniversary dinner dress, but wasn't the lunch hour specifically invented for trips to the mall??? I think so.
