Baby Cake

Some very sweet friends who live up the street threw a baby shower for Mike and I last night. One of our gifts was a baby cake. I'd never seen anything like it!

Most of the "cake" is rolled up diapers. We have cloth diapers to use at home, but the disposables will really come in handy when we're out and about.

The parts that look like candles are diapers with wee socks sticking out, and the parts that look like lollipops are washcloths. Several bibs are also stuck in various places.

Isn't that adorable? I don't even want to know how long she spent rolling diapers. I'm going to leave it intact until my mom comes next weekend, so she can see it.

We have wonderful friends.

i googled instructions for making one of those. for anyone interested, type in "making a diaper baby cake." the first hit brings up a pictorial "how-to".

totally making one of those for my pregnant friend. she'll love it.

I've seen one for bridal showers made out of bath towels. Cute and very useful.

Sad news- will not make the pilgrimage to Walnut Grove and DeSmet this summer. Too expensive.

You're still getting a baby gift, so I'll need an address to send that to at some point.

I know you can buy those cakes (a lot less work and still appreciated!). This reminds me, can I have your address for a bloggie shower gift? Email me. :)

Serious- done!

jonathan- you'll have to blog that project...

betsy- major bummer. But you're close enough to see the musical, right? (I left a comment on your blog with my email address... write me and I'll send you my home address.)

suzy- very thoughtful friends. We were overwhelmed.

roxanne- can you buy them in stores? I know my friend made this one. I'm interested to see how it's put together... looks like pins and rubber bands. I'll email you with the requested information. :)

I'm not sure. I know that there are "people" that make them. Probably the yellow pages wouldn't be the best place to look. Like everything else, I'd google it.

I've seen those at a few places and yet I always remain impressed because it is such an awesome gift.

That is cute. I'd heard of them but never seen one, kind of like the people in your childbirth class looking at a vagina.

I love that diaper cake. I want to make one for a friend. I know you don't know me, but I linked here from a friend's blog and came across it! Any chance you have directions to make it?
