strawberry shortcake

I made another diaper cake, and I love this one. I did a strawberry shortcake theme, and I think it ended up really adorable. I picked out outfits that were red and pink, some with polk-a-dots, some with strawberry patterns, all really stinkin' cute. There are six little outfits crammed inside that cake! I added socks which I turned into flowers, and baby wash clothes that I turned into candles. Instead of baby bottles on the inside I used a bottle of baby soap and a bottle of baby lotion. Then I found a cute strawberry teether, and of course the strawberry shortcake doll on top. I used fake cherry blossoms to keep the doll perched up there.Atty and Spike have tried to destroy this thing a bunch of times now, if I make it out of the house with it in one piece I will feel lucky.

Back view of the cake. I use diaper pins again to keep the ribbon together. The strawberry ribbon I tied in the front instead with the strawberry teether. I used red polk-a-dot ribbon around the individual diapers on the outside.
I am really liking making these for baby showers, I think it might possibly be my thing from now on. It's a lot of fun, make one, I swear you'll be hooked. There are some great tutorials, I found some on youtube.

Gillian- No, but that's sweet of you to ask, this is only my second diaper cake. I would be to scared to ever try to sell them or have a website...they're not that cute! :) Just cute enought to give as gifts, those people can't complain if they don't like the final product, because that would be rude...ha, ha!
