'What a GREAT Idea!'

Those were the first words out of my mouth when I learned about Naples Crafty Cakes. The owner and creator of this up-and-coming enterprise is a young mother named Tanya, who lives in Naples, Florida. Tanya came up with the clever idea during a period when a few of her friends were pregnant around the same time and she was invited to their baby showers. Instead of buying baby items and conventionally gift-wrapping them or making gift baskets, she came up with an excellent "crafty cake" idea, incorporating the items she was going to buy anyway. The result? Her ingenious creations were a HIT! They became so popular and in demand that Tanya started up her own business.

"Crafty Cakes" are not edible (zero calories! Hee hee hee), but they are the latest in Bridal Shower and Baby Shower decor. They are beautiful, decorative, imaginative, original and best of all, they are 100% reusable, so there is NO waste. Unlike conventional balloons or cardboard centerpieces that get tossed out, crafty cakes may be reused. My favorite is the diaper cake, which consists of several tiers of diapers, bound together with pretty ribbon. Decorations include items such as bibs, facecloths, baby bath products, and stuffed animals- everything the new mother can easily use for the baby. The diaper cake is also perfect if you are visiting a new mother or want to send a gift to the hospital. It is much more imaginative, useful and festive than the typical floral arrangement (flowers are pricey and die quickly). As for the wedding card holder cake, it not only makes a bold, beautiful statement on the reception gift table, it is cleverly designed to hold money envelopes securely (cards go in and stay in). They can be used as pretty storage boxes afterward.

In addition to these whimsical cakes being carefully hand-crafted with high quality products, they are made in a hygienic, smoke-free and pet-free environment- an important feature that every allergy sufferer (like myself) can appreciate. Crafty Cakes can be custom designed according to theme, color, and budget. If you live in the Naples area, for an extra small fee you can have your custom cake delivered- a definite convenience! As always, thank you for reading!

      I loved the article! I purchased the Mickey Mouse cake (shown above) as a shower gift. It's even more beautiful in person. I was also very happy with the price. Crafty Cakes is a winner!
