I wanted to share the diaper cake that I made for my sister's baby shower. It makes a great decoration as well as gift!
I started out rolling the diapers up and using rubber bands to secure them. As it got bigger I used string to tie them together. When each tier was to the size I wanted, I secured it with the string then wrapped it in a pretty wired ribbon.
Beautiful! It looks like a real edible cake. Was this baby shower cake your own creation, or did you follow a craft pattern?
I love this! It looks so elegant. I have made these for friends but each tier has it's own "theme". I put baby spoons around the middle tier, the top i put a taggy blanky rolled in the very middle for a centerpiece on top then hang pacifiers down the sides. Around the bottom tier, I usually roll up some burp cloths and strategically place them instead of the diapers. Then add travel sizes of shampoo, soap, and diaper rash ointment! Every one that recieves one absolutely loves them! Now I'll have to make the "elegant" kind, too :) Thanks for the ideas!
What a great idea. It looks real. You are crafty!
Thank you for your compliments! This was the first "cake" I ever made and just kept building it until I felt it was just right. You don't need a pattern - it is very easy! I had a lot of guests assume it was real and had to do double takes! Very fun!
Wow, nice job. Very nice presentation. kr
