I know this is silly, but I just had to post these or I'll never know how drastic my diaper cakes have evolved over the years. Unfortunately, I never took a picture of my very FIRST diaper cake that I made for my cousin, Fe. It was for her baby shower for her first daughter. Eventually, I'll ask her for the pic and just add it on here.
For now, I'll start with my second diaper cake that I made for my Uncle John and Auntie Beth's baby shower in 2004, and conclude with my most recent diaper cake which was for my cousin Marysol's baby shower just last week.
I had fun making this one! The whole diaper cake is frosted with receiving blankets. I also staggered the flowers diagonally instead of just straight in a line. And you can't really see but I tried to make roses on the top tier with baby washcloths. It didn't look so pretty so I covered it with the flower. But I love the print and colors of the blankets!
Now we're getting into "square diaper cake" territory! Each diaper is folded in half and connected to another diaper folded in half. Still time-consuming like the "rolled diaper cake" style..but much more neater. I think I added too much crinkled paper in this cake. Still working out the kinks here!
