My first cake... I'm so proud.  Cheesy

The base is a scrapbook (in a box) secured with ribbon so the actual cake won't slide off.  The topper is a Precious Moments teddy.  The filling is 42, size 1 Pampers (layered, not rolled) & the frosting is blue with a thin layer of black & white polka dots.  Num!  Grin

Great diaper cake!
I like how you used the box with the scrapbook as a base and the colour of the ribbons makes it more attractive then just baby pink or blue.
It's a true work of art.

Ah, thanks so much!  Smiley

It was fairly solid, but the box base made it even easier to carry.

Thanks again...  Wink

Love it! The bear is a cute touch, too! How long did it take you to make?

Thank you Smiley  I was just going to do flowers on top, but thought the lil' bear would boy-it-up a bit & he was begging to be used in a project anyway.

It took 30 - 40 minutes... mostly 'cause I kept fussing with those darned flowers.   Cheesy

I didn't get to see the proud papa receive it (the baby was born a week ago, but my boyfriend took it to work with him today to give to the daddy), but I guess he was really excited about it and thanked us over and over... Smiley  That makes me so happy!

Here's another one I made... this one I had to make in the car 'cause were running late, lol.  Cheesy

The birdie on top is actually a pin cushion I got as a prize in the Great Scavenger Hunt Swap.  Smiley
