Diaper cakes make great table decorations and centerpieces for baby showers, or as personalized, hand-crafted gifts for new parents. I’ve made about five as gifts so far, and all have been big hits.

Come see the pins that inspired the elephant-topped diaper cake, with tips on how to assemble and personalize your own creation.

I made two plate and teacup stands for the Alice in Wonderland, Unbirthday Party. Each held a variety of homemade finger sandwiches, and were set up on either end of a buffet table in the dining room.
