BabyMama and finished Diaper Cake

Such a happy diaper cake! A stuffed Cheshire Cat, a lot of baby supplies and an excited grandmother were the catalysts for this fun diaper cake. Yvonne, the grandmother-to-be, gathered the expectant mother and other friends and family together to share in the creation of this cake, and to prepare for the baby shower. Sounds like they had a blast!

I love Yvonne's story below. She shares her photos, her ideas and her spunk. Just what we like to see in our fantastic diaper cake gallery. Yvonne, thanks SO MUCH for sharing your adorable diaper cake. BabyMama looks so happy!

In Yvonne's Own Words:
Here are photos of the diaper cake for my newest granddaughter, due Jan. 2011.

I gathered supplies: a big box of size newborn diapers, rattles, baby washcloths, bibs, bottles, pacifiers, toys, baby lotion (the Anti-Monkey butt paste was a big hit!), booties and more.

The BabyMama, her mother, two teenage sisters and a friend all came over to help plan the shower and I put them all to work! BabyMama was entirely in charge of the diaper cake, while the rest of us worked on other preparations.

BabyMama had a lot of fun making the cake and it turned out very cute. Each diaper was rolled up, then secured with a clear "Goody" brand hair tie. The layers were tied together with yarn, then covered in a receiving blanket. Two blankets for the bottom layer, secured with diaper pins. The top "icing" on each layer was pink tissue paper. The very top has six Superhero rubber duckies on it (duckies are from Oriental Trading Company.)

I love the grin on the Cheshire Cat! Kind of like the one I'm wearing, thinking of a new granddaughter!!!

So when we started this cake, I really wanted a lot of elements that reflected my personality and my significant other's personality. We are both very quirky and nerdy/geeky people. I really did not want any princesses as there was just too much pink and I wanted to keep this as gender neutral as possible for celebrating both my partner and I. The cupcake bib and the Cheshire cat are really what reflected me and the super hero duckies along with the darker colored toys are my partner. We both love gummy candy which filled the empty bottles. In the end the diaper cake came in handy much more sooner than expected since my daughter wound up being born in December 2010.
