Daddy Doody Kits...and a Flash Sale!

The most popular item at Beachside Baby Cakes is the  "Daddy Doody Kit"- part gag, part gift. I give them to dads-to-be frequently, a) because it's funny (as is their reaction) and b) if the dad has to come to the baby shower he deserves a gift for being there! This kit is filled with new baby necessities as well as a few gag gifts for dad. Everything is useable- and I'm sure dad can find a way to reuse the pail as well! Head over to Beachside Baby Cakes and check it out.

To thank all of the new Beachside Baby Cakes followers, I'm offering a 15% discount on all orders placed by 10pm EST Monday Evening! Visit my Etsy Store and use the code FLASH15 at checkout. This also applies to custom orders- I can make a diaper cake to fit any theme and budget!

Just a reminder, be sure to check out my last post and enter the Pregnancy Forum Giveaway to win some great prizes for new and/or expectant moms.

Remember to follow Beachside Baby Cakes on Facebook and Twitter to stay in the loop. You never know when we might be inspired to do an impromptu giveaway or flash sale!

A Very Hungry Caterpillar Baby Shower

Handpainted Wall Hanging

I was very honored to host a baby shower for my Brother and Sister-in-law (and their little caterpillar still in his cocoon). I wanted to throw a 'Build-a-Library' shower, and decided to stick with one book for the theme. This is a favorite at my house- my 5 year old "reads" it to anyone who will listen!

I did most everything myself, from designing the invitation to baking the goodies as well as the diaper cake. Of course I made a diaper cake!!

I had the best time planning this cake, and searching for just the right "ingredients". The Fuzzy caterpillar and the rattle were my favorite additions- I found them in the Eric Carle Museum of Picture Book Art's online store.

Love that fuzzy little caterpillar

Onesie "lollipops" and washcloth "candies"

This Diaper Cake (or something very similar) can be custom-ordered through my Etsy Shop.

I'll be posting more shower pics complete with Caterpillar-friendly recipes on my other blog, Baked by Beth. Check it out!
