This is just a quick post to say that if you now scroll down to the bottom of our page you will find to the far right there is a Youtube icon! On our Youtube channel it will be mainly tutorials on ideas for creating crafty makes with our products.
Nappy cakes or as they are known in America ‘Diaper Cakes are now big business over here in the UK and gaining popularity all the time. In France the direct translation would be ‘gâteau de couches’. The idea originates from the US and really started growing after an A list celeb being pictured in a UK magazine receiving one as a gift at her Baby Shower party. Baby Showers are another US import and are the reason bespoke baby gifts like nappy cakes and clothing bouquets are gaining popularity here in the UK. Typically they are held 2 weeks before the Mum’s due date and organised by friends and family. The guests bring gifts and share their experiences as Mum’s themselves. The host will organise invites, decorate the venue and organise the food. Quite often baby themed games are played for a bit of fun too! In France it is considered bad luck to celebrate an event before it has happened so they have something similar after the birth of the baby and we are seeing more and more customers from across Europe interested in making and selling Nappy Cakes and Baby Shower gifts.
The most common request we get is ‘how do we make nappy cakes’ or ‘do you have any tutorials on how to make nappy cakes’. There are superb companies in the UK offering professional nappy cake training classes such as www.makeababygift.co.uk but for those just interested in learning the basics or those on a tight budget these tutorials can be a great help. To be truly successful you need to come up with your own designs and find your own unique style and niche but these tutorials can help you get started with the basics and then you can have fun experimenting with your own versions. Be aware that many designs you find on the internet are copyrighted so don’t copy them!
