Haven't shared any with you for a while...

Pin It    You are probably wondering if I'm still making diaper cakes as I haven't posted any for a while. I still do but this summer was definitely slow for me. Plus I didn't really have any fun orders. By "fun" I mean challenging and unusual. Most people order the basic kinds aka brown-pink-polka dot or blue-brown combinations. I have some cake ideas that I use over and over and over. I still like to make these but every time I get an order for something new, I become somewhat anxious and giddy with excitement. Like this time:


 The girl is having a vintage carnival baby shower. They sent me a few pictures and this was my main inspiration picture for colors and patterns:

       (this girl had a fun but an EXPENSIVE party for her 4-year old!)

   On some other pictures that they sent me there was yellow too so I added a little bit to the other colors. After I took the pictures I realized that the cake was slightly crooked but I fixed it :) A few pictures of the details (still the crooked pictures, sorry):



Now it just needs to be wrapped and delivered.

   And it's a great start for the Savings Challenge in September for me :)

  2. You did a very nice job incorporating the theme of the party into your diaper cake. How do you wrap them and transport them?

    1. I usually only make them locally. I only shipped once. Here I just a cellophane bag with a coordinating bow. For shipping I use tulle and put it in a huge box with lots of papers and peanuts :)

    2. I was interested in that question too. The shipping must have been a lot. It's nice to see it arrived in one piece! whew

    3. Depending on where you ship, it's usually $12-20. But I rarely ship because I'm yet to learn how to pack it right. Everyone tells me that I need to start an Etsy store but until I figure out what's going on with my part-time job, I'm not sure if I'm ready to take another responsibility on myself.
