BAKING FOR THE TEA PARTY – WELL NOT REALLY

BAKING FOR THE TEA PARTY – WELL NOT REALLY

Today there was no time for a Tea party. I had a cake to bake.
It was a Nappy (diaper) Cake.
On Saturday I am giving my daughter Amy a baby Shower (baby is due 15th October).
So I thought I would ‘bake’ a cake.

I really love how it has turned out.
The baby on top and the little babies around the 2nd and 3rd layer originally had bright blue nappies(diapers) and suit. Of course that did not go with my theme so out came the left over paint from when I painted Amy’s nursery furniture. Perfect colour.
There is also a cute little brush and comb on top.
Dotted with little roses and of course pale green flowers it looks gorgeous.
The 2nd layer of ribbon around the middle layer has cute little footprints on it.
The back of the cake has a cute little suit on it ~ pale green of course.

I hope you all enjoyed looking at what I baked today.

This is sensational! I have never seen anything like it. I love it. My sister is having her first baby due 24th Dec so I think this would be a great idea for her. You are clever!
