Cakes, to eat and not to eat

While preparing for my daughter-in-law’s baby shower I had one of those V8 moments. I was looking for something unique to do for her when I stumbled onto the clever idea of creating a “cake” out of disposable diapers. I had never seen this done – ever. But, suddenly people were coming at me from everywhere telling of the cute cake they had at their shower back in 1950. Wow, I felt as if I had just crawled out of a cave. How this idea, which has been floating around for the last 50 years, managed to avoid bumping into me until now?

Not content with just the usual round cake I saw a version of a diaper castle on the Internet and boldly, with the help of my friend SA, attempted to create a suitable castle for my little prince.

For some real fun try these two links. Their names give you a hint for the hilarious photos ahead.

Very NICE!!! I like the Castle.

In March...for a BABY SHOWER I hostessed...I made a Baby Cake, too! It was the CENTERPIECE of the Shower and everyone loved it.

Did you change the way you post pictures? I was hoping to get an expanded picture of those cakes but wasn't able to do so as I could with the earlier pictures on your blog...

I made a diaper cake several years ago. It was harder than it looks. You did a great job.
I loved the cake link you posted.
