    About this diaper cake: “A customer requested a diaper cake with the theme ‘All About Boys’, and the slogan on the romper used for the cake says it all — ‘Boys Rule, Girls Drool’, and in line with the ‘drool’ bit, the bib appropriately says ‘Spit Happens’! The colours used, blue & green, are typically boyish, and what do boys typically like? Trains & trucks, of course!”

    About making diaper cakes: “Our aim? To create beautiful diaper cakes that recipients would be tempted to NOT dismantle — or at least hold it off for as long as possible to admire!”

    “I’ve always been very emotional about everything baby related and pregnancy. I adore baby showers and love to craft and make something with my hands to bring more joy to expecting mothers. Diaper cakes to me are symbols of the cuteness, softness and silliness that babies bring in our world. They are just like babies — so cute and sweet that you almost want to eat them up!

    This particular diaper cake was inspired by a farm theme and although simple, it’s elegant and will make any farm themed baby shower even more fun.”
