How to make a diaper cake

Hello Bloggers! I have greatly missed you or at least my readers missed you. After a lot of wonderful text messages, face-book messages, and photo comments I have decided to blog about making a diaper cake. Well here you go people.

Ingredients for a diaper cake:

60 Diapers-Size 1
Ribbion-1 1/2 inch- your color/design of choice.
60 small clear rubber bands
6-12 large rubber bands
One 4 oz bottle
One large bottle of baby lotion or 8 oz Bottle.
1 cardbord or plastic cake platter
Baby Items -baby socks, confetti, toys, bibs, onesies etc.

Bottom Tier- Roll about 35 diapers starting at the top of the diaper (where it opens) and continue to the end. Don't forget to secure the rolled diapers with the small rubber bands. Place the first 5-6 diapers around the lotion bottle and hold them together with 1 large rubber band. Continue 2 more times around the lotion bottle, all together the bottom tier should have 3 rings of diapers. Your first tier should look similar to this:

Middle Tier- Continue to roll diapers and stack on top of the first tier. This time we will only have 2 rings instead of three like the bottom tier. Use large rubber bands to attach diapers to the lotion bottle.

Top Tier- For the final tier use the 4-oz baby bottle as the base and attach diapers around it. You will only make one ring around the bottle this time. Your diaper cake should look similar to this by now.

You can now use the ribbon to wrap around the cake covering the brown rubber bands. Don't forget to decorate to your liking. Add all kinds of fun baby toys, onesies, pacifiers even small blankets. Personalize the cake to your parent's to be theme. This is a great idea for baby showers, and don't worry mommies, all diapers are useable. 

Here are the two cakes I made recently for two great friends!

Proud Moment

I am probably the worst person in the world when it comes to directions, not kidding. I can get lost driving around Edmond and I've lived here for 5 years now. Because I am so directionally challenged I thought I would share with you my proud moment for today...ready for it?

I made it all the way to my destination in Tulsa today without my GPS and with all the crazy construction going on up here. Granted I've driven up here at least 4 times in the last 2 weeks I should be a pro by now. Lets see if I can get home with old 'Gar Gar'. 

I'm very proud of myself.

Apparently I own way too many magazines...What do you think?

There is a logical reason as to why I own/hoard/purchase so many magazines. You see, one day I want to build a house, so I buy Southern Living Homes Floor Plans. I love to cook, so I receive Better Home and Garden, and Kraft Foods magazines. I also love and admire those who decorate, therefore I have six...count them SIX Veranda Decorating magazines. Finally, if you know me well then you know I'm obsessed and LOVE Martha Stewart (minus the whole inside trading business) so I also receive Martha Stewart Living.

I love getting cool ideas and inspirations from magazines such as these so that's why I keep them around. I also like to tear out my favorite articles and save them to a binder so that one day I am able to go back and try all the fun recipes, decorating, and fashion tips. See, there is a reason to my madness.

Just for fun I will leave you with my top three favorites.

#1-Martha Stewart Living
#2- Southern Living
#3- Real Simple

What are you favorite magazines?

One day I'm going to move to Tulsa...

...For real! I LOVE Tulsa and I am slightly jealous of some of you natives. Have I been living under a rock? How did I miss all the amazing shopping, beautiful trees and lovely older homes? Friends from Tulsa, thank you for keeping the greatness of your city under wraps.

Here are some pictures of my quick trip to Tulsa.

Telephone Booth in Utica smelt just like Europe...urine and all. 

Ummm. Yeah. Found a Burberry Scarf for $250. No, Thanks! 

Just doing a little reading...

Of course I had to stop by my favorite store. I could just live there! 

Act like a penguin...

Went there. Did that...

Saw a shark. Had a blast.

Like I said before...One day I'm going to move to Tulsa.
