Let me share a bit more craftiness from the baby shower this past Saturday.  My favorite thing to do these days for baby showers is a Diaper Cake.  They are so much fun and make a great gift.  Since this was for my daughter-in-law it became a gift on top of a gift as I loaded it with so many fun baby items. 

Ingredients:  loads of diapers!; white and silver deco mesh, light pink and chocolate dot ribbon; buttons; Graphic 45 Little Darlings chipboard tags; Becky Higgins "love" artwork and font; lots of baby fun things.

To prove I'm a total nut case I decided to make cake pops for the shower.  I am so not a crafty cook.  These actually turned out good.  Several things I learned:
1.  do not add too much frosting!  These things turned out totally rich.
2.  make sure you have a way to store them back and forth to the freezer or refrigerator.
3.  always have a tester around to eat the mistakes so it looks like you know what you are doing.

I don't have a better photo of the place card holder but they are actual forks I found at Goodwill, cleaned up, bent the center 2 prongs to the back and the outer 2 towards the front with a bit of a curl on the tip.  These make care place card holders for the food.  You can make all styles.  The instruction for them are all over the internet. 

I had a grand time at the baby shower and I'm at it again making yet another diaper cake, but a totally unusal one that I can't wait to week after the shower.  LOL

Have a Crafty Day!
