Making a Baby Shower Diaper Cake
How to Make the Ultimate Diaper Cake
Do it with real diapers and make a different baby shower cake and let me tell you, making a baby shower diaper cake is not at all that difficult.
Instructions how to build the ultimate baby diaper cake:
About sixty disposable diapers the type with a design on the waistband.
A babies tray.
At least 20 yards of ribbon
Clear adhesive tape
Baby botlle filled with candy
Babies fork and spoon set
Anything else that you can use to create the impression of a baby.
Instructions for assembly while making a baby shower diaper cake
Roll the diapers tightly. Tie in a round. And then roll some more and tie another round around the edge of the first layer.
The smallest layer:
If you are going to use a baby bottle on your diaper cake, fill the baby bottle with money or candy, and then stand about 6 diapers around the baby bottle. Tie a piece of ribbon around the diapers that are standing up around the baby bottle to hold them in place.
The second smallest layer:
For the middle layer you will want to use about 15 to 20 diapers. Stand the diapers up and tie the bundle of diapers together using a piece of ribbon.
The largest of the 3 layers:
This is going to be the largest layer. You will use the remaining rolled diapers that you have. Be sure that once completed, the layers look like they belong on a 3 layer cake. You do not want the top layer to be tiny, the middle layer only slightly larger and then a huge bottom layer.
If you use about 30 diapers, you should have a layer that looks like it "works" with the cake. Because this layer uses so many diapers, you may actually want to gather about 10 or so diapers, bundle them and tie them together with ribbon. Then take the remaining diapers and stand them up around the outside of that bundle, tying the bundle off when completed.
You are almost done with making a baby shower diaper cake, just assemble the layers and decorate the cake:
You are going to assemble the diaper cake on the baby plate/tray. Place a few pieces of tape on the platter. Place the largest layer of the diaper cake on the platter.
If you don’t use tape there is a danger that the lot might fall off. However a tad common sense is needed here if you add too much tape the diapers will be spoiled. Use your discretion here.
Next, place a few pieces of tape on the top of the bottom layer, place the second largest layer on the top of the bottom layer. Do the same for the top (smallest) layer.
Now that you have the cake constructed you are going to want to decorate it with lots of baby knick-knacks and gifts. To decorate the cake, stick the items in the ribbon that was used to tie the bundles of diapers together for each layer.
