Want to find me.. I will be at the bar with a glass in my hand, but not eating the nuts... bar nuts are sort of scary.

Cake anyone?

I know, I know… a little off the beaten track, but sometimes a girl’s gotta do what a girl’s gotta do.

A friend recently had her third babe. Brave, from my perspective. With all the moving, renovating, unpacking etc, I have been a little remiss in my congratulations. In fact, this newborn is now over 2 weeks old… and they only live around the corner!

So I am inviting them to come and celebrate a little, my first real guests in fact, and join me in some wine and nibbles tomorrow.

The third child is the deal breaker, in my eyes. Those of you who chose to go down this path are made of stronger stuff that moi. Cars are built to seat three kids in the back. But as one of three sisters, all I remember about our Summer holidays, were the ferocious arguments about WHOSE turn it was to sit by the window, the middle spot being clearly marked LOSER!

But, I digress, in preparation for tomorrow, and putting aside all the myriad of chores that are piling up around my ears, I decided to tackle a Diaper Cake…that is a Nappy Cake if you come from Down Under.

I think it turned out pretty good… and only took me three hours… who knew that rolling nappies could be so time consuming!

What a great cake! I'm sure she loved it!!

We called the middle seat, riding b!tch. It is clearly not the good seat.

Beautiful! And very creative - what an awesome way to present congratulations and gifts! I've never seen this before :D ! Of course, I prefer chocolate... ;)

Awww, how sweet! Have you seen the shower game where you melt different chocolate bars on the nappy & people have to sniff it and guess what kind of bar it is? It's so hilarious b/c it looks like everyone is passing around poopy diapers to sniff! ;)

You have raised the bar. I’m the hostess of a bridal shower in the new year – what would be the equivalent of a Diaper Cake? Or perhaps I should create a Diaper Cake?

“First comes love, then comes marriage, then comes baby in the baby carriage...”

(Three hours?! Yikes.)

what an adorable cake...and a sweet gesture to the new parents. i didnt realize you had friends in the wonderful!
as to the "Loser" seat...i have two sisters and we used to call the middle seat the hump (as it was arched in the center and not as comfortable as the window seats) As luck would have it, the littlest would always call it..."i get the hump" there wasnt much of a fight! :)
