A Diaper Cake for a Diaper Shower

Heres Our Selection of Minis
Here's Our Selection of Mini Diaper Cakes

A newborn typically goes through 10-15 diapers per day, so it’s no surprise diaper showers are becoming a very popular way to honor expect mothers expecting their second (or third, or forth or oh my…).  Now,  you many ask what’s a diaper shower?  Well, instead of  buying the traditional gifts like clothes, high chair, etc.. associated with a traditional baby shower, the guests focus on bringing diapers.  The mom most likely has many of the daily care items from the first baby so she can use these items for the care of the newborn, hence the name diaper shower.

However, if you’ve been invited to a diaper shower, you don’t have to settle for getting the mom-to-be a package of Pampers hastily tucked inside a plastic gift bag. A diaper cake is a much more creative way to celebrate the arrival of her bundle of joy. The cake can be used to decorate for her party, then taken apart to help stock her baby’s nursery.

Obviously, the first consideration when buying a diaper shower gift will be your budget. A simple two tier cake is a good choice if you’re strapped for cash. Check our mini diaper cakes for a simple, lower budget option.  However, if you are attending the baby shower with a friend or relative, I recommend combining your funds to purchase a larger cake for the mom-to-be. A fully decorated four or five tier cake is sure to be the hit of the party!  Since every diaper in the cake can be used once the baby is arrived, a large cake will provide the mom-to-be with 7-10 days worth of diapers.

Just in case you don’t know, diaper cakes are typically decorated with baby bottles, washcloths, pacifiers, rattles, stuffed animals, and other useful baby items featuring a particular theme. Themes for baby boys include sports, cars, and tools. Popular options for diaper shower gifts for a baby girl include cakes with hearts, ladybugs, and butterflies. If she’s keeping the baby’s sex a surprise, go with a gender neutral cake in a theme such as frogs, ducks, or monkeys.

Diaper showers are more common among moms who plan to use disposable diapers, but this type of baby shower can also be a way to honor a cloth diapering mom. If the mom-to-be is concerned with “going green” for her baby, I would suggest taking a look at our cloth diaper cakes for a unique baby gift that’s both cute and eco-friendly.

As always, I welcome your feedback and would love to hear about any diaper showers you have attended.

Diaper Cakes 2010: A new year and a milestone

With the new year in full swing, I wanted share a milestone for Lil’ Baby Cakes.  We are now in our 11th year online.  As I move forward with the company I’m really excited about this year and look forward to supporting my customers with the best selections, service, and quality.  Online trust and  reputation is also very important to me.   I work very hard with my team to make certain our product selection is diverse, our website offers a secure shopping experience, and that we are who we say we are.

We design and handmake every diaper cake in our studio. None of our diaper cakes are made elsewhere or drop shipped.   That gives us complete control over the whole process.  So what does that mean for you?  It means we’re responsible for everything.  No passing the buck, no excuses.  You need a small tweak to the design.  We can do it.  You need a personalized touch.  We can do that as well.  You need to speak with me personally about any aspect of our products.  Just call or email.  Bottom line, we want you and the new mom to be absolutely thrilled with your purchase.

I wanted to also share with you our newest designs that have been received very well so far.  The Too Cute Boy and Too Cute Girl baby diaper cakes have been a real hit with our customers.  In fact, we have now sold out of the girl version and only have the boy version left.  I have just completed a light green version which would be nice as a gender neutral gift.  I think the fleece blankets add an appropriate touch to the design during these cold winter months.

We know there are a lot of choices  for baby gifts.  We will continue to strive to provide the most adorable diaper cakes that leave you,  the gift giver, as the one the new mom remembers for the most unique gift she received. A new baby is a remarkable period in a new family’s life, and I want you to know that we will do everything to make our small role a memorable one for the new mom and for you.

Holiday Diaper Cakes

We are happy to announce our collection of  holiday diaper cakes for 2009.  This year we are offering 4 new designs that are perfect for welcoming the new December baby home.  Our first selection is our Holiday Snow Girl 4 Tier Diaper Cake.  This design draws upon a winter snowman theme with pink accents.  Our second design is the Holiday Snowflake 3 Tier Diaper Cake.  This design uses silver and whites to create a gender neutral baby diaper cake.  The third design is our Holiday Gingerbread 3 Tier Diaper Cake.  This design is also gender neutral and obviously uses the gingerbread house as a theme.  I really like the colors of this cake as it came together in a way that is looks good enough to eat!  Our last design is the companion cake to Holiday Snow Girl called Holiday Snowman 4 Tier Diaper Cake.   This design uses blues so that you can select this for the new baby boy.

I  hope you enjoy these selections and consider one of them as a baby gift to welcome a new baby home in December.

Wishing you a happy holiday season.
