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.
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!
