Diaper Cake for Labour Day

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. . .

birthday 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!

All for now. .

  2. Wow! The cake is so well done it's hard to believe she's never made one before. It's just gorgeous and beautiful!!! Someone brought one to my sister's shower but it was a bit smaller and the diapers were all rolled individually into circles and then lined up and stacked. The idea is so clever!

  3. How clever - and cute! This post is getting a star in my reader so that I won't forget it.

    I always associate Labour Day with birth labour. It was the hardest and best work I ever did :)

  8. And it is a very specialized field of work. Women only may apply.

  15. What a great idea!! The name kind of threw me for loop, but it's beautiful and so practical, of course! Today I feel like Labor day has more to do with the kind of labor you are talking about.
