Diaper Cake Extravaganza!

Many years ago I was invited to my first baby shower for a friend of ours.  Since it would be my first shower  I had no idea what exactly to give as a gift…..I knew I had to make something special!  (I still can’t find a picture of it, so Marlena send me one if you have it.)  That’s how it all started, my love/hate relationship with diaper cakes πŸ™‚

I have made quite a few since that first cake and I honestly do love making them!  Each one is different and it takes quite a bit of time to plan what I am going to do, what I will need to buy and then the actual time to put the cake together.  I have used either the theme of the shower or the nursery.  Many of my friends haven’t wanted to take it apart and have kept the cake all these years later.. .that is honestly what keeps me doing them.  I only say “love/hate” because I am a perfectionist and most of them take me quite a while to make  πŸ™‚  So many people have asked about my diaper cakes that I decided to do a post to show some of my work.  I am considering making them available for purchase, so email me if your interested and we can talk!  tarahttu2@aol.com

Mommy to be:  Megan Martin  (my baby sister)
This was a special diaper cake for me because it was for my precious niece, Jaidyn.  The bottom layer is a baby blanket (that has still never been used. πŸ™‚ )  Don’t you love the ironing board camera shot?

This jungle themed diaper cake was for one of my best girlfriends.  Baby Jaxson’s cake is a favorite of mine because I will never forget trying to make that stinkin’ monkey hug that cake!

Mommy to be:  Melissa Hoppes  
Melissa is one of my big sister’s oldest friends.  My sister lives in Canada, so she had a diaper shower early for Melissa because she is only in the country a few times a year.  Baby Weston didn’t have his name quite yet πŸ™‚

This diaper cake was for one of my very best friends from high school.  It is so beautiful!  I love my sweet little Brooke πŸ™‚
