Great Baby Shower Gift Idea!

I totally forgot to share this with you guys (bad Melly, bad!). I made this for my friend's baby shower a few weeks ago. It's a three tier diaper cake :D I saw this online a long time ago and never had a need to make one until now. I took newborn baby diapers and rolled them up and tied them...I had to do about 50, WHEW! Then I made three levels and tied each together and taped the levels together. Then I stuffed little wash cloths, baby lotion, and baby bath soap that were on her registry. I got her some burp towels and a few other things and I made her brownies with white chocolate chips, mmmm. The little rubber ducky is the cutest thing! It tells you if the water is too hot for baby...how cool is that!? The letters H-O-T are on the bottom and if it's too hot they turn white. Love that ;)
