If you’re looking for a functional, fashionable diaper bag that will be the talk of the town, you must experience Cake by Petunia (as in Petunia Pickle Bottom). Just like a red velvet cupcake with perfectly swirled cream cheese frosting, these bags will leave you craving a big glass of milk. They’re that decadent!
It might sound funny to talk about craftsmanship when describing a diaper bag, but I find this is one of the main words that comes to mind. Let’s ditch the diet for a moment and indulge. Plus, I’ll share the perfect, unique baby shower gift that will make any mom-to-be swoon.
I’ve seen these bags in person numerous times and they are exquisite. The Cake collection diaper bags boast seriously scrumptious fabric you just want to touch, as well as vintage style with modern functionality. After you digest the stunning appearance of the bag, the real deliciousness occurs because you realize it’s not only beautiful, it’s also a sensational diaper bag. What makes Cake by Petunia bags special is they all feature Italian Cut Velvet. Derived from the French world veluotte’ or velvet, the plush velvets are woven and then “cut out” on a linen base cloth to create a rich texture.
The Cake collection has two different styles to choose from when it comes to a large diaper bag option, the Society Satchel ($325) and the Cosmopolitan Carryall ($349). Both are fully equipped, but you can carry the Society Satchel four different ways. I think this is a great idea because moms have to be versatile and ready for anything. For example, you can carry the satchel as a shoulder bag or quickly snap it to your stroller with the valet clips. I know I’m gushing, but even the names are cute. From Buttercream Cake to Apple Tart Cake to Chocolate Decadence Cake, I’m sure you’ll find your fave flavor.

Need a unique baby shower gift for the special new mommy in your life? The Cake collection has a smaller bag called the Cameo Clutch. It has a few small pockets, a fold-out changing pad, etc. This bag retails for around $135, so it might be a more affordable option. And what a stunning, unexpected gift for mom! She can use this bag long after the diapers are gone too. Cake Cameo Clutch – French Gooseberry Cake – $135 (pictured below)
