A different type of cake this week….the non-edible kind!
A lady Chris works with very kindly made us this amazing “cake” for a surprise baby shower that his work threw us. I have never seen a diaper (nappy) cake in real life, only on Pinterest. It’s a fab idea for parents-to-be and makes a great centre piece for a party!
We have never been to a baby shower before, I’m really not sure how common they even are in the UK but over here almost everyone has one, they go hand in hand with a baby registry (like a wedding registry), again another thing I’m not sure really exists in the UK, we’ve certainly never some across them!
They decorated a room at work with banners and rattles, they had a cake made for us and punch to drink. They even made little favour boxes and gave us some lovely cards and presents.
It was really really nice of them and we both had a great time. As time creeps on and we’ve been busy attending baby classes and trying to sort everything out before baby arrives, it was lovely to have a little party to celebrate and we were both a bit overwhelmed by peoples kindness and thoughtfulness. I’m now fully converted to the idea of baby showers, they have a real “feel-good” effect and I will definitely be trying to create a diaper cake in the future, I think they’re awesome!
