5 Weekly Handmade Picks...

Here's the list for this week...such cuties!!

To start, Jeffrey immediately caught my eye! Those big ears and that smile...oh, he won my heart! He's made from 100% cotton and Jeffrey's little overalls come off for easy dressing. Any child would be thrilled to find this under the Christmas tree (:

This is the perfect catch-all bag. Great as a diaper bag with the large inside space and outside pockets to hold bottles, toys and wipes. Then when a diaper bag is no longer needed it transitions into a great town bag to hold books, laptop, files or anything you might need while running around. So versatile, yet stylish at the same time! I love the cream, but Bayan Hippo has many color options.

I included a knitted cap in last week's list, but when I saw this little guy I couldn't pass him by!! Look at those cheeks (: This little hat will put the smile on anyone's face! Can't you see your sweet one bundled in their winter snuggies with this bear hat to keep them warm? Too cute!!!

Every child should have something inspirational in their room. This plaque would be the perfect touch! It comes in both pale blue and soft pink and is so stylish it would work in any room of the house. Add a little inspiration to your home!

Babies love to touch, chew and pull on anything around them! No wonder these binkies are a favorite for both home and travel! The silky satin brown and blue giraffe design on one side and blue raised dot ultra soft minky on the other, along with multi-textural ribbons provide a sensory experience for curious little hands. Easy for your little one to take with them on car rides or for entertaining in restaurants.

5 Weekly Handmade Picks

The holiday season is fast approaching! A couple of years ago I decided to get my Christmas shopping done before December and it has made things so much easier! Beating the seasonal rush just makes my heart sing!

So, to help those who also want to begin a tradition of early planning, Friday will be my "Weekly Handmade Picks" day. Each Friday I will post some favorite finds while on my own shopping searches. Happy shopping!!

This is just about the cutest little bunny I've ever seen!! Don't you just want to squeeze her!!

Booties made with pima cotton and natural beech wood fibers - as luxiouriously soft as silk blends, but without the extra care required!! And for a special touch, vintage buttons for the closure.

Every child (or adult for that matter) loves their name on something, whether it be a back pack, purse, sports shirt or favorite pillow. This personalized chenille pillow would be the perfect addition to any child's room. They come in all colors and designs.

This solid maple grasping and teething kangaroo is ideal for babies to grasp and chew. Each animal is sanded satin smooth and left unfinished. And with this purchase a tree will be planted through Trees for the Future. So not only would you be giving a great natural gift, but you would be giving back to the environment as well!

Precious in Pink...the picture says it all! This beanie can be made in any color and comes with a petite white ribbon. So adorable for baby girl's first pictures!

Welcome to the Simply Baby Cakes Blog!

I began designing diaper cakes after getting such amazing feedback by giving them as gifts. So many friends and family would say they loved getting diaper cakes, but didn't really need the generic gift items that came with the cakes made by other companies.

I decided to create designs using only diapers and a plush rattle or teether as the topper and the response was phenomenal!! People appreciated the simple elegance of the design plus they weren't overloaded with items they didn't need. The perfect gift for new parents!!

As more and more cake requests came in, it became clear a website would service customers better and so
Simply Baby Cakes, LLC was born. Our diaper cakes are favorites not only as gifts, but are frequently used as center pieces for baby showers.

Over time products were added that were near and dear to my heart and customers have been thrilled!! There's a new line of calling cards for parents, play date cards, sonogram announcement cards when you want to share the gender of your baby, custom silver jewelry and many, many more new things to come!
