Here is the blue and brown cake!

Good Evening!
I am so excited to share this blue and brown cake with you! I did divert from my original plan a little but that's okay. It still turned out adorable and it is for sale. All the details are listed in my previous post. If you are interested in purchasing it please click here to visit my Etsy page. Can you believe what you are seeing? Yes, I have listed it on Etsy. I have never done this before so it is a big milestone for me! :) Jess and Aunt Patricia - I know you all are so!  Hope you all enjoy all this beautiful weather that is heading our way this weekend!

(btw...I know my signature is missing but I will have to get Jess to help me, it has not been cooperating lately.)

Back to the diaper cake bakery I go....

Brown, Blue & Polka Dots Too!!

Good Morning,
As you saw in my previous post, I have some receiving blankets on hand. I did some Spring cleaning in the diaper cake bakery and found them tucked away. Because I love the brown and blue dots, I am going to start making a 10" cake tonight. For some reason they have been calling me to make a cake with them ever since I found them! This is not something I normally do, I usually only create cakes at the time of order. But, this time I am making an I should have it completed by the end of the week! It will be listed for sale for $40.00. Just shoot me an email if you are interested in purchasing it!

Here is what it will include:

30 pampers swaddlers size 1
4 wash cloths
2 receiving blankets
1 bottle
2 pacifiers
1 set of nail clippers
1 Johnson's take along pack: baby shampoo, baby wash, baby powder, baby lotion and desitin
1 teddy bear to love

Have a great day everyone!

Need a 10" diaper cake??

Hi there!
Hope everyone had a fantastic Monday! I just went through my materials and found some receiving blankets that would be perfect for a 10" cake. I wanted you to see them so you know what I have on hand. Email me at if you are interested in creating a diaper cake out of any of these receiving blanket combinations.

Have a great evening and a wonderful week!

Honesty is the Best Policy!

We all learned growing up that honesty is the best policy! It is unfortunate that there are dishonest people in the world. I am sure that you have come across dishonest people a few times in your lives. I had an experience today that I would like to share with you, because I am honest.

As you all know, I posted a Piglet cake earlier this week. I let the customer know that the cake was ready on Thursday and that we needed to finalize the pick up arrangements. Basically, she stopped communicating with me. I could not get in touch with her. My mind got curious and I started to wonder. I happened to find another cake online that was so similar to the one I had put together, name and everything. The lady said she had it for sale. That made me even more curious. So I emailed the lady and she told me that yes, she had gotten the order and that the lady never showed to pick it up and she rushed to put it together. She said that unfortunately, it sounded like I had gotten scammed too. Why, would someone waste their time doing this? What thrills do they get out of it?

I have received several orders off of Craigslist and I have not had any issues and as a matter of fact, met some really great people! This is unfortunate that I had this experience because I did not see it coming at all. I now will have to be even more cautious than ever and require anyone that I do not know personally to put down a deposit before I proceed with the order.This is definitely a learning experience for me. I guess since I am honest and as good as my word, I trust  that everyone else will be too. I am just too nice and too trusting. I will be taking the necessary steps to ensure that Craigslist is aware of this situation.

Ok enough of my rant. I have had to revise this since I originally posted it. I listed the Piglet cake for sale and all of the information about it and no sooner than I hit "publish post" and checked my email, it had already been SOLD! How fantastic is that? Don't worry, Piglet will be going to a good home and the person that bought the cake is legit and honest :). Thank you again Heather!

Hope everyone has a great rest of the weekend! It looks like we are in for some rain! Sounds like our Sunday will be lazy and will include a nice afternoon nap :)

It's time for the big reveal!!!

Here is the moment you've all been waiting for! Here is PIGLET!! This customer asked that I put the baby's name on ribbon and place on the cake. So, I took pictures of the cake with the ribbon and without it! It was something that I've never done before, and I am never opposed to trying something new! It definitely added a nice personal touch to the cake!

I also included a picture of the outfit that is inside the cake! It is too cute and I just had to share :)

Have a great weekend!

Easter Bunny Cake

This is out of the norm for me but today, I decided to make a "real" cake. (ok I it was a box mix but still, I made it). As you can tell it is a Easter Bunny cake! It turned out pretty cute! I made one last year too and had a lot of fun doing it! I don't bake that much so if I do something once or twice a year I am doing pretty I just thought I would share the pic! Hope everyone enjoyed this beautiful Saturday!!
Happy Easter!
