Zero calorie cake...but so yummy!

I have a confession to make...I love all things baby!  Of course my own baby is my favorite but I have always loved baby showers.  I used to go way overboard and buy lots of cute little outfits.  Then when I had my own baby I realized what people actually need...diapers!  I've been making diaper cakes for several years now.  I used to tape the diapers but then I realized that can mess them up.  My cakes are made with 2 sizes and 2 brands (give the mom some variety).  I make them jelly roll style and hold it all together with rubber bands.  I usually wrap the bottom layer with a receiving blanket.  I buy the "travel size" J&J kit at Wal-Mart for around 3 dollars.  I got the tulle at HL where it was on sale this week.  For the top I have used rubber ducks in the past but this time I found a cute baby hat crochet pattern and then I put a bottle with candy in it (for mom).  The girl cake had good and plenty's (pink and white).  The boy was york pieces (blue and white).  I wonder how long it will take for my husband to find the remaining york pieces?  The card was a CASE (copy and share everything) from Andrea Walfords site  I used some new DSP from SU that looked like vines and part of a rub on that said "sweet slumber".  For the boy's card I used the fox and friends set and did the turtle baby card but in boy colors as in my previous post.  Hope you will use this as inspiration for your next baby shower gift (it's less expensive than clothes)/  Thanks for looking.
