  • If you enjoy making them and people want to buy them then yes.

  • I have found people on craigslist looking to buy diaper cakes before so I think that if you find someone who would like one then you should charge, but if you want to start your business you should plan first, you cant just start a business because you like making them. But I am sure that you are good at it and you should follow your dream where ever that takes you. Best of luck. I hope that if you choose to sell they will sell for you very well!

  • Let all of your family and friends know you do this. Put up pictures on flickr, and then put a link on your email signature.

  • If you think people would buy them, then ya! There's tons of them on eBay...so I'm not sure how well you'd do there. I would suggest starting a little business by word of mouth. Post ads on your local craigslist. Create a little website telling what it is you offer and a general idea of prices.

    I've made 2 diaper cakes before and got tons of compliments.

  • Check out etsy.com. It's a website to sell handmade items. You may want to look around and see if there is anyone in your area that sells diaper cakes already.
