An interesting story goes into the making of this cake, I guess. I just found out 3 days ago that my ex is expecting with his new girlfriend (we were only just officially divorced in July). This information didn't actually come from either of them, but from my mother, whom I don't speak to and who wanted to make sure I wasn't going to be going to the baby shower (I wasn't invited). So, since everyone is expecting me to be upset (and I don't think my ex and his girlfriend even know that I know), I decided to give them a baby gift. And, instead of buying something lame, I made them this cake.
The cake is made of 49 size 1 diapers, 16 feet of ribbon total, crochet string to tie the diapers together, an eensy bit of tape, and a little blue ducky.

Here it is:

And, the ducky!


That's it! Tell me what you think!

Cute cake!  I'm glad I didn't hear anything about my ex after we got divorced.  I don't know if I'd be able to be so...gracious...wit h him so soon after the fact.

I think it's awesome of you to make them such an awesome gift Smiley And I think you should tell your mom to suck it, but thats just me.

Thanks to both of you! Honestly, I am a little bummed, but I'm going on.

And, I have told my mom to suck it- on multiple occasions! But, I've found that the best torture is saying nothing at all to her. She texts, I don't answer. And, apparently, it drives her crazy!  Wink

I think your humility and kindness are just brilliant!! If only others could walk threw their pain so gracefully as you are then this world would be such an amazing place.

You have done an amazing job on the diaper cake and I am sure they will appreciate it or just be dumbfounded by your taking of the high road. And the beautiful gift  Wink
