Diaper cakes

Hello everyone! I have been busy getting craft show stuff ready and all that good stuff. However I do have a fun new project for everyone to help me with. My best friend asked me to help with ideas for a project. She has been making diaper and towel cakes for showers and weddings she has been going to . They are awesome in my opinion and they get a great feedback. She would like to figure out how to get some orders for them and start making them for other people. I suggested Etsy, maybe craigslist, community bulletin boards etc. So she sent me a few pictures to post. So what I am looking for is feed back. what do you like, what do you not like. These are commletely customizable and can be done in any price range to fit any budget. They are ideal for weddings, graduations, bridal showers, house warming gifts etc. There are a bunch on Etsy but she does nice work and will work within a budget. So here we go. I have no idea what she is going to call this venture but for now let's call it Cakes by Cathi-jo.





Dallas Cowboys Diaper Cake



She is looking for towel cake pictures as we speak so hopefullly I can add those soon. The Dallas Cowboys cake was huge and heavy! Five tiers! She made that one for my cousin. She is curretnly working on Diaper cakes for her husband cousin who is expecting twins! I will get pictures of those in the next couple of weeks and post as well. So remember gang I need feedback. She would like to start doing this for other people becasue she loves doing them.

I like the last one with the blue/ lavender flower trimmings. This is such a great idea!

Those are really cool! I especially like that last one...it actually looks like an edible cake!

I think Esty sounds like a good idea and make sure to say she will work with your budget...I think that would be a big plus for her.

Best of luck Cathi!

They are Pampers. She could do cloth if it was what someone wanted.

Hi all!!!! This is Cathi-jo! I have done cakes with multiple different brands of diapers to help meet budget requirements, but have never used cloth diapers because of budget restraints.(unfortunately cloth diapers usually run more expensive) I can pretty much do them in any size, shape, configuration, or price range.
Thanks for everyone's great thoughts!
