My daughter's baby shower was yesterday. I was asked to do the decorating. Her last baby shower was for our sweet little Madison and very pink and girly. These are a couple of pictures of that shower to give you an idea.
Since this baby is a boy and it's winter I thought I would do something bright and cheery. My daughter is not into the pastel baby blue boy thing.
Anyway, the cake...
I knew I wanted to do a centerpiece and I had seen diaper cakes before. She definitely needs diapers and I thought I could incorporate both of those requirements with this diaper cake.
There is a bottle of champagne in the middle around which all the diapers are wrapped. The "fondant" is white tissue paper. I wrapped ribbons around each layer and dotted the whole thing with bright polka dots I cut out of card stock. I made the flowers, as you can tell, from tissue paper.
