Are you looking for custom baby gifts that will stand out at the party, be useful and appreciated by the proud parents and allow you to use your creativity?  Diaper Cakes can definitely be the answer!  Diaper Cakes are made from a base of diapers shaped into a tiered cake design  and then decorated with any of a variety of useful and fun items.  You may start with a particular theme such as cartoon characters or sports.  You can utilize different colors, shapes and sizes of decorations to further customize your creation.  As you gain more experience, you can vary the actual design of the cake from a basic “cake” design to ones that are shaped like tractors, tricycles, dolls, etc.  You are only limited by your imagination.

While Diaper Cakes can be purchased pre-made from a variety of sources, they can be expensive to buy and expensive to ship.  In addition, since diaper cakes can be relatively delicate to transport,  there is always the danger of the diaper cake being damaged in the shipping process.  The other big problem is that it takes away the ability to customize the diaper cake for the intended recipient.
