Head spinning yet?
Just when I started to get my mind around this cake, we added a third theme to the cake. Mommy and daddy to be are WVU fans, so we decided to throw WVU into the cake. But this actually made the cake easier. See, the Yankees colors are blue and white, WVU is blue and yellow, and ducks are yellow. The WVU theme was used to tie together the Yankees and the ducks theme. In my head, it all worked. But there was part of me that was still a little concerned that it would look too busy, so I held my breath and hoped for the best.
To find unique, one of a kind items for this cake, I searched Etsy for ideas and found a ton of stuff, like this custom Yankees onesie
vendor I had worked with before (on this cake) and we created a completely one of a kind stuffed animal.
So now that you've seen some of the custom aspects of this cake, how about seeing the finished product?
This cake is made out of 110 Pampers Newborn Diapers, 2 NUK pacifiers, 2 onesies, Johnson and Johnson products, 3 Gerber spoons, 1 pair of socks, a handle rattle, 1 Yankees pacifier holder, a pair of WVU shoes, a burp cloth, a Yankees fleece rattle ball, and the duck hat.

|The Yankees fleece ball was made by the same person who made the duck. She used the extra fleece from the duck and created a custom rattle.|
|The Yankees pacifier clip is another Etsy find. You can find this one and more here.|
