Flying High

Late last week we received an inquiring for a quick turn around bike for a new mom and dad. Dad is in the Air Force so we went off of that for the theme of the bike. With such a quick turn around we weren't able to find any Air Force items for the bike, but we did incorporate the colors (blue and yellow) as well as patriotic colors (red, white, and blue). And then, this guy found us
 Seriously, the old school pilot goggles get me every time!!

This bike is made up of 40 size 1 Pampers diapers, 2 cloth diapers, 2 receiving blankets, 6 link toys, 2 bibs, 1 pair of socks and the little cutie pie rider!!

We were thrilled to be able to make this work on such a tight deadline, and hope the new parents are settling in with their new little bundle of joy! Congratulations!

A Little Birdy

An old coworker contacted me (by the way, I miss you at work, come back!!!!) to make a cake for her sister in laws baby shower, using the plates they had purchased for the shower as a jumping off point. Using that plate, I found almost identical ribbon

and it all came together from there!!

This two layer cake includes 116 Pampers Swaddlers Newborn Diapers, 1 bib, 4 Gerber soft tip spoons, 1 headband, 2 super soft wash cloths, 2 NUK pacifiers, 2 pairs of socks, Johnson and Johnson travel size products, 1 Bright Starts License to Drool teething toy, 2 Bright Starts Chill & Teethe teethers and 1 super soft teddy bear.

And now for some close-ups of the details

Don't you just love how the bib is such a close match to the ribbon?!

I'll be back later this weekend with a new motorcycle cake! Stay tuned!!
