During the holidays, we always run into folks who are friends of our friends or friends of family members. As part of the typical conversation, the question is invariably raised asking what I do for a living. When I reply that I make diaper cakes, most of the the time, the response is huh or whats a diaper cake?. So, I usually give my standard elevator pitch that goes something like this, A diaper cake is an arrangement of diapers made to resemble a traditional tiered Cake. It is then decorated to match a particular baby theme with ribbons, bows, and baby care items. I then like to add a plush toy for the baby to enjoy as they grow older. The response is usually something like, Oh, thats cool, I have never heard of those before, or Wait a minute, are those the things people bring to baby showers? I think I know what they are. Either way, the conversation continues on from there, and I either explain more (if they ask) or we move on to different topics. It got me thinking about how there are many people who have never heard of a diaper cake, and dont even know that they can make some of the most memorable, and unique baby shower gifts that you can possibly give. So, with that in mind, I want to take the opportunity to set the record straight, explain what diaper cakes are, and put the word out there for those of you looking to learn more about them.
