Baby Food Cake - Unique Christmas Gift
We have all heard of diaper cakes. They are an adorable gift for baby showers. Like this one here:
There are millions of different styles of diaper cakes you can buy or create yourself. But I wanted to do something different for my best friend/sister in-law, I like to be unique and create gifts that you will remember instead of the usual so I looked up baby food cake to see what I could find. I found actual food cakes that were made with baby food but nothing using jars of baby food or boxes of baby food. So I decided I needed to get creative. Here is the first ever Baby Food Cake:
The entire creation is baby food except for the basket on the bottom holding the jars of baby food. My friend loves animal print so I took the theme and ran with it.
I started with two boxes of pablum, 9 containers of baby food, baby cookies, a basket, tissue paper, decorative ribbon, and Winnie the Pooh decals.I started by wrapping the boxes in blue tissue paper, because clearly they had a baby boy so you can use pink for a girl or green and yellow if the sex is unknown.
And then I began to wrap and glue the ribbon on the boxes as well.
Then once those two pieces were complete I turned my attention to the basket.
I simply wrapped and glued ribbon all around the basket to complete the look.
After it was completely decorated in the ribbon and tissue paper I strategically placed Winnie the Pooh decals and a pretty blue ribbon on top. I also included spoons and a baby book as a part of her baby gift and I think it turned out beautiful.
