This was my first diaper cake I ever made. It was fun, but took some time to figure out how to attach things right. Here's a list of what I used:
1 Bottle of Champange (in the center of the cake)
1 Round Charger (or platter)
1 Receiving Blanket
1 Pacifier clip
1 Plush Animal
1 Tube Desitin
Approx. Cost $65.00
I rolled each diaper and wrapped with rubber band and placed on platter around the bottle. Continued the same with 2nd & 3rd tiers. Wrapped each tier with a larger rubber band to hold in place. Covered middle layer w/ receiving blanket. Put ribbon on other layers. I had to take some diapers out or move them around to make room for baby items tucked inside blanket on 2nd tier. Attaching the alligator to the top of the champagne bottle and around top tier was a little tricky but I used large rubber bands and tried to conceal them as best as I could. I used a hot glue gun to place the letter tiles on the ribbon to spell the baby's name and pinned the ribbon to the receiving blanket.
I think it turned out pretty cute and my sister-in-law loved it.
I can't wait to make more and try out different ideas. It's a very fun project. Have Fun!!
