A Little Sweet, A Little Sassy

Hi everyone! Hope you had a great MLK holiday weekend! I'm trying to get back on track with posting, so I wanted to share a couple of things I finished lately--specifically, a couple of diaper cakes. Here's some pics:

Here's a little sweet...

and a little sassy...

So here's the story: A friend/coworker of mine asked me a few months back about making a couple of diaper cake creations. However, as the time grew closer, she found out the two showers were planned for the same day! I've never built two at one time! So imagine me with this expression:

But before I really started to panic, I heard a little voice telling me that I could do it! I'd just have to plan and start on the cakes earlier--to step up my game, so to speak! So I rolled enough diapers for two cakes. My friend knew she wanted one to be a Winnie the Pooh cake for a girl, but we couldn't figure out what to do for the other. Now, I love the traditional cakes, but its really fun to step out of the box sometimes. When I suggested the pink and zebra print theme, my friend Camilla didn't flinch. She liked the idea...Doesn't it make you feel good when people give you that creative freedom to come up with something?? (I was still a little nervous, but don't tell anybody, lol) Camilla, a very crafty person, painted the "K" cake topper! Each cake has around 120 diapers, and a host of goodies inside and outside the cake. Although they were both for baby girls, it was really fun creating two very different themes. My friend loved them, and I hope the moms-to-be loved them too!
 Thanks for stopping by and taking a peek!
...And That's All She Wrote!


  1. Since my "baby" is now 26, these diaper cakes are a new thing to me. I love your 3 tiers and how lovely they look, especially being made out of diapers!

  2. Cheryl: Your diaper cakes are too cute. Its been a while since I made one. I guess my friends and I are aging. LOL it's always nice when you are given permission to work freely. I especially like how you worked outside the box with the dark ping and the zebra print. You go girl!

  3. Great job on your diaper cakes they are really pretty! I hardly ever get to make them for baby girls....Keep up the good work and Happy Crafting

  4. Oh my I love these.
    I was going to make one for my niece.
    Yours are beautiful.
