This diaper cake was so much fun to make!!!!!!!!!!
I made the cake in a neutral color because we didn't know the gender of the baby.I looked for things to work with the color theme.
There is:
175 new born diapers rolled and taped closed.
there is 3 receiving blankets folded flat for the bottom of the cake. Those were set on a plastic tray.
for the inside of each layer i used big bottles of baby lotion shampoo baby powder desatine. I set my center with 3 bottles of baby product taped them together with clear packing tape then worked a circle of diapers around the bottles then i used curling ribbon to tie around each circle of diapers until i had the right dimension of the cake. then continue on the next layer not as may diapers but around baby bottled items. In the second layer i put in between the diapers baby shirts white. continued on tho the third layer in the same manor. I used baby wash clothes to curl and place in cake like roses. I also did the same with little sock hats for the baby. Each laker has the curled ribbon around the layer then I put wide ribbon around each layer and made some bows to angle up the cake.
I tucked a comb a brush,a spall container of cue tips rapped like a package with a little bow on it hen tucked it in the side of the cake. I used teathers ,rattles and rubber ducks to decorate and i found chains that connect to each other pulled the colors i wanted and spaced them around the cake. On the last tear I used a bottle brush to and put it in the center to anchor the stuffed animal. Then wrapped a box of baby bottle liners to look like a package and set my giraffe on it and secured it with curl ribbon and made a big bow with the wide ribbon I uses around the cake.
