Diaper Cake

Believe it or not a four tier diaper cake takes almost 50 diapers to build.  I have been told I will go through that many diapers in less than a week!  Each little birdie on the cake was made out of felt, fabric scraps and hand stitched.  The birdies will be used for the mobile above the crib.  Each tier is wrapped with either polka dot ribbon or turquoise tulle.  Some of the diapers were wrapped in fabric scraps left over from the crib bedding.  Cute additions to the cake were colorful pairs of socks, rattles and travel size baby care lotions and powders.  The personalized touch of Callan's name was simply made by painting small wooden letters in a bold shade of pink to stand out!  The cake fits both the theme of the shower and Callan's nursery.
