Pat Richardson with Newborn nappy cakesMany times I have wondered what to buy for a friend or someone at work when they leave to have their baby.  You end up either buying flowers or an item of clothing.

When my daughters (3 of them) all had babies (5 now and another on the way!) I then realised the need to have a gift that is practical as well as looking different.

I decided I would start making nappy cakes as it is a personal gift and all the items are useful to the new mum and baby.

My first nappy cake was delivered to a colleague’s wife at work who had a baby girl.
This is what she had to say about her gift:-

“The nappy cake was such a beautiful gift. I was the envy of all the mothers in the maternity ward.   It was so expertly decorated that initially I thought that it was a real cake.  We felt bad at having to open it up.  The gift was also very practical too. I will certainly keep it in mind if any of my friends have a baby in the near future.”

All nappy cakes are made with quality nappies and accessories and are presented in a creative way in a choice of blue, pink or yellow.  They are delivered gift wrapped in white spot cellophane with lots of ribbon and a bow and a card with a message of your choice.
