Tell us a little about you . . . My name is Wendy and I am a stay at home Mommy of 2 wonderful children, Bruce (turns 6 today!), and Brooke-Lynn, who will be 2 in January. I started making diaper cakes in 2007 when I received one at my baby shower. It was the best gift I got, and I have learned, the more diapers the better! This is why my cakes have so many more diapers than you will find on a typical diaper cake, all while costing less and with free shipping! I also have baby shower favors, such as washcloth lollipops, washcloth butterflies, diaper purses and other gifts, and every time a new request is made, it is another thing added to my website. I love custom orders!

What is your business and where can we find it? Diaper Cakes by Wendy. I currently have no physical store, but would love to some day!  You can find me online at http://www.diapercakesbywendy.com/.

Is it mom-owned, invented, created . . .? Yes, it is Mom owned, and I do all this on my own. I make everything after it is ordered, this way you can get it just the way you want it!


A little about your entrepreneur journey so far? It definitely started off very slow, I was only making diaper cakes when I started, but so were hundreds of other people, so I got nowhere. But I did not give up and my husband would not let me, he thought I had something good! So I kept on and tried different ways of making diaper cakes. I tried them on eBay, locally, in gift shops, and at the flea market with no luck at all. Finally it dawned on me that I needed something inexpensive to attract buyers. So this is where the mini diaper cake came from. I was the first person to make a true mini diaper cake, as back then, all mini cakes were actually large one tiered cakes. I made them with just 8 diapers and priced them low. I finally had some luck and was selling them good until everyone else started making them too. But by then I had attracted enough attention to my larger cakes that it didn't matter. Now, I have over 25 different baby shower gifts and favors. I don't quiet make enough to survive on yet, but I am hoping to get there eventually! I just started craft shows and right now am doing one per month, so I am hoping it becomes profitable too!


Where else can people find you?  You can find me anywhere! My blog is http://sassy8722.blogspot.com
Twitter ID is Sassy8722
Flicker is DiaperCakesByWendy
And various other sites, my main user name is Sassy8722 you can find a lot on me if you just Google that! :-)


Anything else you’d like to share?  I absolutely love what I do with a passion. Being a Mom of 2, I know what to use and what not to use on babies. I never use store brand diapers, I use Luvs on every item I make. I use high quality washcloths on the favors as well, nothing from the Dollar Store. I guarantee you will not find a better value anywhere else on high quality work with high quality items. I can make any theme or colors, so if you don’t see what you want, just ask! Thank you SO much!

oh wow, I would love to win. My friend JUST had a little boy (her first one) and I love the idea of diaper cakes...so I'm sure she'd appreciate it.

I really like that she has baby shower favors too.
