Scientists agree that the only reason adults have children is so they have a socially acceptable reason to visit amusement parks, eat at novelty pizza arcades, and see movies with Shreks in them. Tack another excuse onto the toddlerific list with today's Groupon: for $20 you get $40 toward decorative diaper cakes from Stinky Cakes, an online shop for baby bundles.
Stinky Cakes handcrafts diaper “cakes” (not intended for consumption) by sandwiching a variety of infantile gifts and goods between layers of soft, pillowy diapers. These unconventional toddler towers can include the baby’s name and are available in a variety of styles for girls, boys, and twins, each defined by themes such as animals, princesses, and sports (usually between $24.99–$99.99 each). Cakes can also be customized with a company logo or personalized with a custom theme or design vision. These eye-catching, yet practical gifts are primed and ready for any mom-to-be or mom-who-already-is (watch this video for more information).
- With social media, and the help from affiliated NBC and ABC stations, The Boston Herald, National Public Radio, and INC Magazine, Stinky Cakes has gained publicity and is well known within New England and beyond. In 2009, Mychal was selected into the 2009 Business West’s 40 under 40 class and his wife and co-owner, Adrienne, was selected as one of the Nations Top Mom’s in Business by StartupNation.com. With all the recognition, his highlight to date was creating two Stinky Cakes for a Boston Red Sox pitcher who was expecting a new baby. – Alfonso Santaniello, Strictly Businews
