Brenda's Comments:

Theme: It's A Boy!

I used about 67 size 1 diapers (Huggies $18.97 or whatever you new mom prefers). For the first layer I used a large bottle of lotion ($1.94) and placed it in the center of the cake platter that I purchased at a party store ($.99). I then took 18-20 diapers, unfolded them and rolled them like a cinnamon roll from the front to the back. Then secure them with a rubber band($.44) around them . Then I took 7 diapers and placed them around the bottle and fastened them to the bottle with a large rubber band ($.86). Next I started on the 2nd ring of the 1st layer. I took the remaining 12 or 13 diapers placed them around the 1st ring of diapers and secured them with a large rubber band. Now for the 3rd ring of the 1st layer. I took 21-22 diapers, unfolded then and rolled them up just like before, but instead of a rubber band I tied a ribbon (1/4 inch wide- $1.97) around them.

I then secured the entire layer with a piece of ribbon (7/8 inch-$1.97)to keep the circular shape. Be sure that no rubber bands are showing. Now on to the 2nd layer. It is made in the exact same way, except instead of 3 rings there are only 2 rings of diapers. For the inside ring use about 6 or 7 diapers and place them around the part of the lotion bottle that is sticking out of the 1st layer of diapers. Secure with a rubber band. For the 2nd ring, use 11-12 diapers, place a ribbon (1/4 wide) around these and secure them in a circular shape by ribbon. On this layer I used 1 1/2 inch wide ribbon ($2.97) so that when I get ready to finish with decorations I have something to stick them into.

Now for the 3rd layer. This one is easy. I took a 5 inch baby bottle, set it on the table. I then took 5 diapers and rolled them like before and secured them with the 1/4 inch ribbon and placed them around the bottle. And again I tied the 7/8 inch ribbon around it to secure in the circular shape. Then place this tier on top of the 2nd layer. Around the bottom of layer 1, I also put a piece of 1 1/2 inch ribbon.

Then I began to decorate it. I used stickers in the baby boy theme. I used plastic blue baby items and tied them to ribbon and tied them to the ribbon on each layer. I put 3 little yellow, rubber duckies ($2.99) on it, 1 on the top of the bottle. I put 2 pr of booties ($1.50) on the sides, 2 pacifiers ($2.50), 3 baby washclothes ($1.94)on the sides, 2 baby rattles ($4.00), stickers ($4.93) along the cake platter, 3 t-shirts ($5.60), 1 onesie and bib ($4.50), 3 bibs ($10.00) and 1 bathtime ducky ($5.00) to lay in tub for baby to lay on while bathing.

I then put a balloon with a blue bow on it that says It's A Boy ($1.49) I then place the entire cake into a plastic bag ($1.49), gather it at the top and place a bow ($.99)and curly, ribbon ($.99) on it. The total for this cake was approx $84.00.

My step daughter's baby shower is coming up in a week and I cannot wait to take it. This is the first one that I have made and I am happy that it came out so nice.
