Diaper cakes. No wonder the terrorists hate us.

Maybe if they had diaper cakes, we could have peace.

Hey! My wife just got one of those for her baby shower. I don't think it's any more silly than other things they do at baby showers...or other events. What about pyramids of coke in the grocery store or giant tubs of tennis balls at the entrance to the U.S. Open?

Actually, I find this pretty logical. Diapers are damn_expensive, and this is a way to provide the expectant mother with a nice beginner supply in a pretty and creative manner at her party. Much better than just dropping an unopened sack of them in her lap and saying "Here ya go, Mama. Youse got any beer at this shower thing?". This is just an example of women being girly. What's wrong with that?

There's nothing wrong with this idea. I've seen pictures of 'towel cakes' using washcloths or kitchen towels. The cake is simply a creative way of presenting an otherwise common gift. No harm, no foul, and somewhat fun.

Yup, and when we were registering at babiesrus a few weeks ago we made the mistake of setting foot into the bathing aisle. They have baby bath tubs that are footed tubs with showers and jacuzzis in them

No wonder today's mom's are so busy..they have to give spa treatments to their babies all day!

It's also economical for the giver since the chocolate addition will come later for free!

If they cut it open and it's a chocolate cake - well, that's just a sign of things to come for the poor mother. So they're just doing their part in helping her to realize her "situation".

Now, German Chocolate. That would be nasty.

My plan is working...

1) Say how stupid these things are, ensuring that people will react the opposite way.
2) ?
3) Profit.

We are so white trash that we just carry our baby in the shower with us!

Diaper cakes would be better if they weren't made with disposables. A diaper cake with 3 layers of Green Mountain diapers in varying sizes would make me drool, garnished with Fuzzi Bunz.
