Baby Shower Cake

As some of you know, I manage the Beall's store in Glenwood Springs. My Estee Lauder counter manager is expecting her first child in three weeks and had moved recently to this area. I hosted a baby shower for her and had the employees from the store and friends of hers over on Saturday night. Never having held a baby shower before I looked to Splitcoast for ideas. I saw a picture of a diaper cake and decided that I would try and make one. Wow, this went together in about an hour and was a blast to make and even more fun to see the reaction of Sarah and the gals at the party. I wish I knew someone else who was pregnant so that I could make another one. It was definitely a hit and I only burned myself once with the hot glue gun when I glued the bottle to the top of the baby lotion in the center of the cake. Hope you enjoy looking and thank you for your comments.
