Baby Cake Take 2

Now that we had the shower for Jenny's baby (recipient of funsies), I can post this surprise baby cake that I shipped to her in SF. This one was a little more informed than my first experiment/creation for Baby Oscar. I knew what colors Jenny liked-- neutrals, brown, purple and green, and that she loved elephants. So I ordered the ribbons online (houseofribbons.com has a crazy collection of grosgrain varieties for cheap!), the elephant blanket on Babies R Us and bought the little cake-topper lab and burp cloths at a local shop in Chelsea Market.

The structure of this cake looks just like Oscar's (all diapers) but this time I just covered the layers with the blanket and burp cloths and secured them with corsage pins (prettier than regular pins) and hidden safety pins under the ribbons. I also used plenty of rubber bands and double stick tape throughout so the cake arrived in SF safe and sound.
Already wondering who the next lucky mom is....


  1. This is the cutest baby gift!
    I don't know which I like better. This or the Halloween treats!

  2. Come back to SF so we can craft together!
