Superhero Diaper Cake

When my friend/co-worker Luci & I decided to throw our other friend/co-worker Kyle & his wife a Superhero Baby Shower, I started working on putting a diaper cake together.  I know I have said in my other diaper cake posts that it can be difficult to find some of this stuff to match my themes & this theme was certainly no exception.  For the bottom layer, I took a red blanket that was actually one supporting our local university's football team.  I had ordered the cutest blankets that you can see below from the Geekabyebaby Etsy shop.  Unfortunately, they didn't make it until the day after the party, so I had to improvise.  How cute would they have been on a superhero diaper cake?  Oh well.

Anyway, speaking of Etsy, that is where I found pretty much everything for this diaper cake.  I bought these adorable bibs & this little superhero boy with a "G" on it, which was just perfect for little baby Gavin on the way.  Here is what the bibs & superhero boy looked like.

So the bottom layer was the blanket with two of the bibs pinned to the sides.  The middle layer was a yellow receiving blanket I found at I think Target.  I found this little superhero bear on Ebay.  He was just perfect to top off the diaper cake. I put the cape bib on the back of the diaper cake so it would look like the cake's cape flowing off the back.  I pinned the little superhero "G" boy on the front & set two little superhero ducks that were little favors that I think I found for less than a $1 or so at Party City.  I also pinned a couple of little blue socks to the sides.  I finished the cake off with some primary colored ribbon.  I had the red from Christmas, the yellow from the Bee party & the blue from the old Super Bowl party.  Here is the finished diaper cake.  We can only hope that our little superhero Gavin loved it.
