*Snow Day! *

Carhartt is helping me measure the snow here :)

It has been such a beautiful, peaceful and relaxing day! We all need a few of these every once in a while! The snow is just beautiful! It is supposed to snow all day and into the night. So far we have had 4 inches. They say we could get up to 13 inches.
We've got a big pot of chili going and just enjoying the snow.

I took some pics and I thought I would share. As many of you may or may not know, our dog Carhartt loves the snow. Copper on the other hand hates the snow, so we all know where Copper was for this photo shoot...inside curled up in the chair.

Enjoy the pics and I will post more pics later this evening!

Be safe out there!

P.S. I have a cake that I finished last night and will be posting tomorrow afternoon. It is VERY cute!!

Customer Supplied Photo Gallery

Good Morning,

I had a thought in the middle of the about a customer photo gallery? I thought it would be neat for my customers to share pictures of their diaper gifts to see how they were used at a shower, in a nursery, etc.

If I get enough response and interest I will get that going right away. Email me your pictures if you would like to share.

What are your thoughts on the idea?

Photo Gallery

I have been thinking lately and I thought it would be great to have all the pictures of my cakes in one place. So I thought about it, consulted cuz Jess and she gave me some ideas. So tonight, I took the plunge and created a photo gallery page. I will only update it with pictures of my work as I complete orders. There is a link on the right hand side of my blog and one within this post.

This way you don't have to read post after post just to see my work. You can see it all in one place. This is great for people who follow me and for new customers. I know people don't have a lot of time these days and I want to make my page as user friendly as possible.

If you have any other ideas or suggestions please pass them along! I am still new at this and know I have a lot to learn.

I am so glad that the weekend is almost here it has been a long week already.

Hope everyone has a great Thursday!

Don't know what to say on the gift tag?

Hello Again!

Hope everyone is doing as well as they were earlier today! It was such a beautiful day outside this warm weather spoiled us here today on the East Coast!

When I get ready to assemble diaper cake orders, one of the questions I ask my customer is, "what would you like the gift tag to say?" Some people already have in mind what they want to say and others do not. The possibilities are endless as to what you can put on your gift tag. This just makes your gift that much more unique and adds that personal touch. I posted two tags in a earlier post this week for you to see. Just to give you a few more ideas on what to say here are some more tags that I have created from previous orders. As always, I am happy to help you come up with the perfect gift tag message for your order.

Remember, that I custom make each tag to coordinate with the cake. They are printed on card stock and look really nice on the packaged gift!

Hope this helps you with your future order!

My Newest Creations!

Good Morning!

Last night I worked in the diaper cake bakery for a couple of hours. I built two cakes, and I cannot wait for you to see them both! I am working on a Camouflage Cake and a cake with Trucks on it! They will both be so precious! A few folks got a sneak peak at the Camo Cake and they fell in love with it!!

I really want to share the sneak peak pic of the camo cake, but I have restrained myself from doing so until it is completed!!!

Early next week I will have the Trucks cake ready and posted! I am just waiting on the rest of the materials to come in!

Hope everyone has a great Tuesday!

Oh Baby!

Click here to view Jess's post on this doll

Hope everyone is having a fabulous Sunday! It is raining here and its a good day to lounge. As I posted in a previous post, my cousin Jessica is so talented and makes the most precious dolls. She has been very helpful and supportive of my diaper cake business. She has created a doll pattern especially for me to start using on my diaper cakes. See the picture of the doll she created for me above, isn't she adorable??? I am very excited!!! Now, I just have to get over to her famous Nama's and learn how to make it. Jess assures me that it is easy and I CAN do it. Jess and her Nama will have to cheer me on, because I am not very good at sewing. I am lucky to sew on a I am up for the challenge and I am going to give it a whirl and see how it goes! It will be another fun option I can offer to my customers for their cute, unique and practical diaper gifts!

I am hoping to get to make my first doll soon! Stay tuned and watch my blog for more updates!

Diaper Cake Ingredients

Recently, I have been getting questions regarding the typical things that are included in my diaper cakes. So I decided to post a general list of things that I have included in previous cake orders:

Pampers swaddlers diapers size 1 (quantity varies depends on size of cake)
receiving blankets
burp cloths
Johnson's take a long travel pack - baby shampoo, baby powder, baby wash, baby lotion and desitin.
wash cloths
rattle/teethers/play keys, etc.
nail clippers
baby brush/comb set
baby hat
plush animal or appropriate cake topper

The amount and type of items will vary depending on the size and details of the cake. Again, this list is compiled from all my previous orders. I thought it would give you an idea of things that have been and can be included. If there is something special you would like to have included in your cake just let me know at the time of your order.

Each cake is placed in basket wrap upon completion(see pic below). A homemade gift tag is included with all the items listed on the back of the tag that are on the cake. This helps the mother-to-be know what the contents of the cake are if she does not want to take it apart right away. I design the gift tag so that it coordinates with the cake theme. Pictured below are close up pics of some gift tags that I have created for previous orders.

Below is a close up pic of the gift tag that is on the safari themed cake above.

Just for fun, here is another gift tag from a previous order for you to see.

Remember, diaper cakes are not only make cute, unique and practical gifts but they make great centerpieces for showers and are an added touch to the nursery decor.

Below is one of my cakes unwrapped and awaiting baby's arrival in the nursery. Thank you Kyleen and the Spruill family for letting me share this photo!

Click here to take a closer look at this cake.

Email me with any questions.

Have a great weekend!

Diaper Gift Basket Idea

I just had an idea pop in my head. What do you think of diaper gift baskets? They would be similar to my diaper cakes, made completely out of diapers. I thought it would be another fun gift to give the mother-to-be!

Let me know your thoughts on the idea!

After I posted the above, I found that someone else beat me to it. However, this was the only one I found. I was just curious to see if there were any others out there. The basket would look similar to this one below and I can offer them in different sizes as well.

When I get some free time, I will make one up and let you see my new creation! I am very excited!!!

Just to ensure that it is clear, the picture above is not my work! I borrowed it from the website to show as an example of what I was thinking about creating.

Click here to view the site where I borrowed the picture. Give credit where credit is due, right? Right.

Have a great day!

The Cupcake Cake!

Hi Everyone!

I am excited to introduce the Cupcake Diaper Cake! It is a miniature version of the single layer diaper cake. This sample one has 5 diapers, two wash cloths, one burp cloth, two pacifiers and one rubber duck to play with in the tub!

It is adorable! These are perfect to put around the larger diaper cake to accent it at a shower, to take to the hospital to visit the new parents or for an older sibling to give to the new baby to welcome them to the family!

Hope everyone has a great week! Its going to be hard having to work all five days this week since these long weekends have spoiled me so much during the holiday season!
