A Centerpiece or Seven...

One of the many things that I love about diaper cakes is their versatility. There is a diaper cake to be created for every theme and color scheme; and each is as unique as the person who ordered it. Diaper cakes can be given at baby showers, received in the mail, or even delivered to the hospital. Diaper cakes are gifts carrying gifts, and the end result is so adorable and fun... they are practically centerpieces in and of themselves. So, when I was contacted to help decorate a baby shower by creating 7 zoo themed diaper cakes to serve as centerpieces on their tables, I was thrilled at the challenge.

I set out shopping for all things zoo related, on a mission to make each individual cake just a little different and special, but to still have them match and tie the theme together from table to table.

Here is what I came up with:

As individual cakes, I wanted them to look adorable. But, as a group, I wanted them to look amazing! What do you think?

I did receive an email after the shower, and I was excited to hear that the cakes were a big hit! Everyone loved them, and several even tried to take them home. Can you imagine how neat it would be for the guest of honor to find out that they are all for her? Poof: there is an instant supply of matching bedding and stuffed animals for her adorable little baby boy, and decorations galore for her nursery!

Can you tell I'm just crazy about gifts that keep giving?
