On this Labour day. . .2009, it seemed appropriate to show you the very cute diaper cake my friend Linda made for a baby shower to welcome her very special brand new great nephew.
It has over 100 size two diapers in it.
I can imagine that his mommy will have a hard time deciding to pull it apart.
All the tiers are simply stacked one on top of the other. . .
so she can start at the bottom and work her way to the topper. . ..
enjoying it's sweetness . . .tier by tier.
The diapers are rolled around a roll of toilet paper. .
pulled tight with a cord of string. . .and fastened with ribbon.
She did it alone. . .
which impressed me greatly.
She agreed that four hands would have made the task easier.
Linda has made wedding cakes. . .
anniversary cakes. . .
but this was her first diaper cake.
I would have waited to show you the one I made myself when I host my next baby shower. . .
but seriously ..
I just couldn't wait to share her creative idea.
It seemed such a fitting post for "Labour day" weekend holiday.
I know the Labour day holiday is not about babies .. .and diapers. . .
but making the connection isn't impossible.
Today . . I honour the hardest work most mothers have ever done!
