Diaper Cake

A couple weekends ago I was fortunate enough to help throw a baby shower for my friend Spring. I was given the opportunity to handle the decorations. I was really excited to help and couldn't wait to come up with some fun ideas.

I wanted to try to make a diaper cake because they always look so cute and are so practical at the same time. I mean diapers people. What newborn baby doesn't need and use diapers. Also, I had never attempted to make one so I thought this would be a good time to learn. The theme for the shower was monkeys so I googled 'Monkey Diaper Cakes' and thought that this one was cute. I used it as my inspiration. I think the one I made turned out pretty similar and I was definitely pleased with the end result.

In addition to the diaper cake I decided to make some poms. I got the idea from none other than Ms. Martha Stewart herself. Click here for the step by step tutorial. They were very easy and I thought they looked super cute. The bonus to these beauties was that I made them in the same colors as the baby's room so Spring could take them home and use them in the baby's room.

Here are a few pictures of the finished products.
