Hello, Mate!

So a few weeks back I was contacted to make an Australian themed diaper cake, featuring Koala Bears and Giraffe's. Mom to be's good friend had mentioned that they had traveled to Australia a few times and she wanted that expressed in the cake. I pressed a little more to see if there were other hobbies, sports teams, animals, etc. that mom and dad to be were interested in that I could include in the cake to personalize it even more and was informed that mom to be is a big Bruce Springsteen fan (while her friend is NOT) and is also from New Jersey. She thought that adding something related to Springsteen would be funny since the two friends disagree on this love.

Doing a cake that revolved around a country that I've never visited was a bit daunting at first, but after a few internet searches, the ball started rolling.

The cake started with finding the ribbon. I was looking for something girly, but still with the Australian flair.
But, my favorite part of this cake, the "Jersey Girl" onesie that I found online.

As for the rest of the cake, it's made of approximately 140 Pampers Newborn Diapers, Gerber spoons, 2 NUK pacifiers, 2 teething rings, a giraffe rattle, a pull and shake carseat toy, socks, 2 wash cloths, a giraffe security blanket and a giraffe bib! Oh, and how can we forget the cute little koala bear sitting on top!
I'm thrilled with how it came out and hope mom and dad to be enjoy it as well!! And many congratulations on your new addition!!

Cars.... for Girls

Normally a request for a car diaper cake wouldn't be a big deal, but add in that it's for a little girl, makes it a little more challenging. But I was up for it!! And it was a cake that my 4 year old daughter could really get in to, the little car lover that she is!

Mom and dad to be are big NASCAR fans, so they were being thrown a car themed baby shower. I wasn't sure which way I was going to go with it, knowing that there would be a limited number of girly car items out there so I took a stance of, go out and look in stores and see what I could find.

I, of course, started with the NASCAR website, ordering two bibs for their favorite driver. From there, I found the ribbon. Naturally, any car ribbon I found was very "boyish", so I knew that I'd have to girl it up. Pink ruffle ribbon? Perfect!!
And after that, it just all came together. Pink toy car keys, check. Stuffed toy car, check. All things pink and purple, check and check.

This little baby is now in the mail on the way to California for a baby shower on Saturday. Safe travels little buddy!!


One of my mom's coworkers is pregnant with her first child and lovingly refers to her soon to be daughter as Petunia. So when their work was throwing her a baby shower, we knew that petunia's needed to be included in a diaper cake. 

So, let me introduce you to the Girly Girl Petunia Cake. 
Mom and dad to be have a lot of baby animals on their registry so we decided to run with that, adding in as much pink as we could, and finish it off with flowers. 

And then, I threw something different in. For the first time, I made Cupcakes. Keeping with the flower theme, I even found special cupcake holders. 

Congratulations Brooke. Can't wait to meet little Petunia!! The countdown is on!!!!
