I make 3 to 8 layer cakes. I wrap all the diapers with rubber bands and attach to paper towel rolls. I do not use hot glue. When adding decorations, I use large rubberbands and tuck things under them, then wrap with ribbon to hide rubber band. Sometimes it is hard to find rubber bands of the same color, so I match different colors with the different rows. Find a strong holding tape to hold the table cloth in place. Don't forget to put M&M's in baby bottle for Mommy! :) It is a great past time. I get a lot of compliments. I make them to make people happy, love to see their smiles!!
