Diaper cakes. Sometimes you are good at something dumb.

Well, the time has come for me to make the diaper cake.

This is an accidental venture that I actually make money from, wows, and I am good at.

I made the first one for someone at work, who knew I was ‘crafty’ (barf) and the ones on the local Craigslist in Raleigh were, um awful? It didn’t look hard, so I figured it out, and due to the response, I got cards, website, the whole 9. And I did absolutely nothing with either. I threw most of the cards away, as the whole venture felt nasty. Please see my post, here about that. If you want.

Anyway, Because I have 72 projects going and not one thing complete, ill post this.

Naked cake. Without top tier.

Unlike some people, I not only eyeball level my cakes, I use the actual level tool, which helps it not look like a heap of poo. I also do not do rolled diaper cakes, I think they are tacky, and I don’t heap loads of junk onto them. Go ahead and google diaper cakes. Go ahead, it’ll be fun. To see the disasters people pass off for money.

I always do the ribbon colors according to theme. Ugly picks or not, I do them anyway. I try to do them all, but on an esthetically pleasing way.

For girl babies, I always give the toppers some type of hair accessories.

For boys, I do a bow tie. This is on a different lamb different cake, obviously. I like lambs.

Then I do the pacifiers, and I make them look as fancy as one can make a pacifier look, I don’t just glue the crap on.

Then I attach wherever I think they look right.

There’s one anyway.

I was running low on gray ribbon, so I did something I haven’t done before, which is to make teeny tiny hair clips.

I attached those to the place I liked, and now will have to finish if tonight because I was tired of burning the shit out of my fingers with the glue gun.

I don’t wang it to be cluttered, but I want it to be balanced. So I have to add something else. I usually don’t do 4 tiers, especially this big, but it’s for Leah, so I’m going all out.

Want other lame examples?
