Celebration Cake

Evening all, a very late post having just got back from our weekly quiz, but the internet was down before we went and I wanted to post this.
As you probably know I am just a little excited about impending grandmother hood and have been making a nappy cake to take down for my darling DIL. I've seen them on the internet and decided to have a go myself and this is the result:


The cake is made from rolled up nappies and each tier is covered with baby blankets and clothes. The scratch mitts I twisted and turned inside and they resemble roses. The teddy is a comforter and covers the top tier. I arranged little pull on bootees around the bottom layer. To finish I covered it in cellophane and a big bow.

   


If  you would like to have a go all the details can be found HERE
Thanks for visiting me and I appreciate any comments you leave so I can visit you:)
