Sneek Preview


Two months ago we started planning a baby shower
for my oldest daughter Rachael.
This will be her first baby.
It is a boy.


I wanted to share snap shots of the diaper cake I made.
There are 3 layers of Huggies Diapers. 


This was one of the funnest projects I have ever done.
And how about the Butt Paste, 
love this product for baby's bottom.



 Not only was this fun, it was very easy.


You might remember I made the little crocheted frogs.
I mentioned them here


This a good and practical gift.
All items on this cake can be used by mom for baby.


I included a variety of lotions, shampoo, powder.
There is hand sanitizer for mom,
comb, brush, 
wash cloth and baby soap. 


There are a few cute baby rattles.


One rattle is an adorable stork with 
a blue baby bundle in his beak.



And don't ya just love the blue color 
of the teething ring?




Front view. 
The best thing about this gift is you can embellish it 
with all sorts of useful things. If you want more cake ideas you can use Google search and see hundreds of other creations.
I plan to get more photos of this cake when we set it up on the gift table at the shower. It will have shredded blue basket filler around the bottom and little ducks in the filler so that the cake looks like it is floating on water.



Side View,



THE END

    1. Hi Maria. If you Google DIAPER CAKES in the search engine you will be amazed at all the different creations. They are all pretty awesome and a great source for ideas if you plan to make one yourself. They even have several tutorials, and what a help that is! Congratulations on expecting your first grandchild. I hope all goes well. I see you knit and crochet, fantastic!
