Little Boy Blue ~ Light Blue & White

Pin It
Tonight at 6:15pm I received an email seeing if I had a premade diaper cake for a boy that they could purchase for tomorrow. Nope. I custom make cakes so I don't have any already done BUT fortunately I did have some diapers already rolled up ready to go. I told the customer, Kristy, that I would fix her right up!

I have had this light blue ribbon that I have been dying to use & have finally gotten the chance. It is a 3-tier cake that has about 60 diapers along w/ a travel size lotion/shampoo, 1 washcloth, & a clip/bow for the big sister!

Top view.

Clip/bow for sister.

Wrapped up & ready to go!

Don't forget about my give-away! Check out Tuesday, March 24th's post & leave a comment about your favorite diaper cake!

"Bumble Gum" ~ Pink & White w/ Bumble Bees

Pin It
I received an order from Felicia in FL for a cake like the "Candy Stripe" & b/c I do originals, I changed it up a bit but used the same pink striped ribbon. This time, instead of flowers, I used these really cute bumble bees that were on a ribbon which I found in the patio section of Hobby Lobby (yep, I think outside of the box). I also found card holders that matched the bumble bees. You will see it at the top of the cake. I was so excited about all these bumble bees, flowers & butterflies they had on ribbon that I bought several in different colors in hopes that I would be getting many orders in the near future.

Along w/ these cute decorations, I decided that I would also learn how to make simple hair bows on an aligator clip & include them as part of the cake. I'll be making 1-2 matching bows. This cake got 2 matching bows & you will see on the picture that there is 3 b/c I wanted to see how they looked. They turned out pretty well & give me something to do w/ the extra ribbon I always have left over. These bows can be used for the baby or even big sister, especially if the cake is for a boy. I have really cute boy ribbon that would be super sweet for the big sister to wear the day of baby brother's birth!

Included in this cake:
60 Pampers Swaddlers (sz 2)
1 photo/card holder
2 hairbows

Stay tuned during the next week where I will be giving away 2 hair bows!

Purple Passion ~ Purple & White

Pin It
YAY! I made the 3rd & final diaper cake of the series for the client. I hope she is really happy b/c I am! I know I said it in another post but I just couldn't imagine purple & pink together very well but I am pleasantly surprised by how well they turned out.

As w/ the pink & white one, I totally ADORE this purple & white one. In order to have some consistency, the layers look similar although not exactly. The cake is also a 4-tier.

Here is a top angled view.

This is the 3rd tier so you can see the flower detailing on the ribbon.

Finally, all 3 cakes together!

There will be a special something inside each cake (onesie, lotion, shampoo). As per my "style" of decorating, I like those things hidden although I will display them on the outside of the cake if requested to do so.

Please leave a comment on what you think of this series!

"Candy Stripe" ~ Pink & White

Pin It

I have to say that I absolutely ADORE this cake! I am very happy w/ the way it turned out! This is 2 in a series of 3 cakes. I found these really cute flowers on a string in the garden department & couldn't believe how well they matched the pink. I also got a strand of purple for the purple & white cake I am working on now.

Here you can see that I added some of the flowers to the ribbon on the 3rd tier.

This is 2 of the 3 cakes together. I really like how they go together!

Sugar Plum ~ Pink & Purple

Pin It This is the 1st cake of 3 that I am making for a shower. I think it turned out very well. I honestly was having a difficult time imagining the colors together but now that it is finished, I really like it. I'm working on the other 2. One will be all pink & white, the other will be all purple & white. This is the 1 that ties them all together.

Dilemmas & a new order!

Pin It I have a new order for THREE cakes! I'm excited! The colors will be pink & dark purple. I already know of a ribbon at Hobby Lobby that I am going to use. I saw it there the last time & thought, "How pretty!" but b/c I didn't know anyone w/ those color schemes, I didn't get it. YAY!

The order is for 3 3-tier cakes. I'm toying around w/ how to do this since there are 3 cakes. I was thinking of making 1 all pink & white, 1 all purple & white & then the 3rd one a combination of the 2 other cakes. If you have opinions, please leave a comment.

Another issue I am having is that I am using Pampers Swaddlers for the cakes BUT everyone that has received one from me is keeping the cake as is so that IF they ever decide to disassemble it, the diapers will be too small for their babies. So, that brings about my new dilemma, should I continue to use the Pampers Swaddlers OR can I go to another brand that is a bit cheaper & lower my prices? Again, if you have an opinion, please share!
