Rubber Ducky!

This weekend I'm hosting a baby
shower for my Daughter-In-Law
and baby Angelo!

I've changed the shower theme
3 times, but of course we know
the third times a charm!

It's now a Rubber Ducky theme
and I'm lovin' it!

I can show you the center piece
that I made yesterday,
and the little fondant
ducky's I'm in the middle
of right now...

I'll show you the rest
after I set it all up

Here's what I have so far!

~The diaper cake~

~Love the rubber ducks~
I really wish I had made this a tutorial, but
I got so caught up in the moment that I
forgot to grab my camera.

I can't tell you how many diapers are in it
because, guessing how many diapers
in the cake is one of the shower
games we'll play.

I'll tell you the amount later!

I used newborn Huggie diapers
and rolled them from the opening
down and used a clear rubber
band to hold their shape.

I put them on a large cake
turn table and put a baby bottle
in the middle as my center. I
then took a piece of elastic
and tied it in a knot and put it
around the bottle and started
building my first cake layer!

I added a second bottle
(remove the lids/nipples)
Add second layer
just like you did the
first only make it smaller!

The third layer actually fits fine
around the second baby bottle!

Now just decorate, I've seen them
with tons of baby items added, I
just wanted mine to be blue
with rubber duckies and I'm
really happy with how it
turned out!

Tonight I've been making my
fondant rubber duckies for
the cupcakes. So you might say,
I'm getting my ducks all in a row!

~Quack quack~

~yep, getting my ducky's all in a row~

I can hardly wait to show you
what else I have up my sleeve!

I'm going to join 'My Romantic Home'

Please visit as many of the participants
that you can, they're a CrEaTiVe group!

I read each and every comment and would
LOOOVE it if you'd follow me!!!

Always, Debbie~

I love the rubber duck theme!!! The "cake" is adorable but the cupcakes are amazing!!! My aunt did a similar theme and took glass bowls filled them with water and blue food coloring and floated ducks as a centerpiece. They were soooo cute. Just thought I would share. Good luck!!!
