Here is the video on the Diaper cake
Babies are popular and so are baby showers! Today I start a series of videos showing you how to create a successful baby shower.
The first step is to decide what theme your baby shower will be. I chose a Safari or Jungle themed as the mommy-to-be is having a boy.
The first video will show you how to make the invitation. The themed colors are green, chocolate brown, yellow and orange.
Here are some pictures of the shower:

Jinger Adams http://www.jingeradams.com/2012/02/jinger-adams-design-team-call.html is having a designer call. I am submitting my diaper cake for consideration. It involves several crafts : sewing, paper crafting, gluing and decorating. I am not sure if they are looking for one specific trade but I wanted to show that I can do more than one craft 🙂 I am very versatile. I can go from cooking to sawing to paper crafting all in one day 🙂
I made the custom wide ribbon wrapping for the cake with fabric and ribbon. I covered the banner stakes with curling ribbon. The banner is made of chocolate metallic paper and I got the “baby” from the New arrival cricut cartridge. The bear was purchased at a local store. It took a lot of hours but I think it came out really cute.
If you go to my Youtube Channel you can find easy instructions on how to make a diaper cake. I followed the same principles here.
