Life with the P's

A young couple living life – remodeling, diy projects, and everything in between!

Baby Stuff

First of all, we are DEFINITELY NOT EXPECTING (sorry, Grandma). Just wanted to clear that up before any rumors or excitement levels were increased to epic proportions.

Now that we got that out of the way…. phew. Ok, so in the last 6 months or so, I have been to two baby showers. I have discovered that I have a hidden talent in that I am an awesome diaper-cake-maker. New profession?! Could be.

I have always heard people say diaper cakes are soooooooooooo hard. Um, not really. Thanks to Google, I found a cool website that shows an easier way to make a diaper cake. I think this method works much better than rolling each diaper. Plus, the new mom won’t have to un-rubber band (yes, I think I just created a word) each diaper when she actually goes to use them. Functional and pretty!

Check out the diaper cake instructions I used here.

This was the first diaper cake I made for a baby shower for a little boy:

I made that one with one box of diapers. I used random pie pans, skillets, and cheesecake pans to make the circle sizes. I thought it turned out pretty darn awesome for my first diaper cake!

Since another friend is also pregnant, I got to make a second diaper cake for a girl. I decided to use two boxes of diapers this time and went a little crazy. This time, I took some in-progress pictures to show my version of some of the steps.

Here is the final product… so stinkin cute if I do say so myself!

I also made three different flavors of cake balls: confetti cake, yellow cake, and chocolate cake. They were fabulous and everyone loved them. They turned out to be pretty cute too. The yellow cake ones were my favorite!

And to get all of this baby stuff out of the way in one post, here is a cute gift that I made for the baby shower. I picked up the letters and paper backing from Hobby Lobby and the frames from Wal-Mart. The letters are about 1/4″ thick. I spray painted them white and hot glued them to the paper.
