Oh Baby!

So, last Sunday (right before the food poisoning debacle) I attended a sweet baby shower for my friend Andra.

I was part of the hostesses at this shower.  The other hostesses are so beautiful and quite talented!

I was put in charge of making the diaper cake.  If you don’t know what a diaper cake is, basically it’s a bunch of diapers put into the shape of a cake.  Then, it’s decorated really cute.  Most cakes can get very expensive, but I found a way to make one under $25.  Here are the supplies and the finished product:

40 ct of diapers

Elastic

Ribbons

Double Stick Tape

Empty Food Container

Baby Washcloths

I wrapped the diapers around the food container and tied the elastic around the diapers.  Then, I put different pink and cream ribbons around the elastic and secured with double stick tape.  At the top, I rolled the washcloths on top into roses as seen here.

The neatest thing about using the food container is that you can fill it with whatever goodies you want.  I put fun size M&Ms as a treat.  It was so fun to make, and the shower was amazing.  I look forward to meeting Andra’s little one next month!
