Lowest Calorie Cake Ever!

I'm not much of a craft person and my brother got the creativity genes of the family. However, I do pride myself in being able to make one thing that a lot of people don't know how to make… a calorie free cake.

It's not exactly the kind of cake you eat though. In fact, it's quite the opposite because it's comprised of over 100 diapers. Very seldom do I get the opportunity to make one of these, but it's always fun when I do. The look on the mother-to-be's face when she sees it is priceless and the comments from the guests are always complimentary. That totally makes it worth the time and expense to put together. The one pictured here was a gift that I made last year for a relative.

The other day, when a friend said she needed to find a baby shower gift for her son's teacher, I quickly volunteered… "I can help you make a diaper cake, if you like." She thought it sounded cool, so that was my project for today. She came over and helped put it together and I gave her pointers on how to make one herself in the future. I'm anxious for her to give feedback from the shower but it isn't for a few more weeks!

I've been lazy lately about doing my blog, my BzzAgent reports and my Christmas stuff… but I found time to 'bake' a cake!
