Polka Dot Diaper Cake

Judy's Comments:

Ingredients: *Total cost about $35.00*
80 Swaddlers diapers size 1-2
12" cardboard cake circle
Empty paper towel roll
Empty toilet paper roll
3 yards of 1.5" wide grosgrain ribbon
8 yards of 3/8" organza ribbon
crinkle basket shred
travel size baby wash, powder, shampoo, lotion, cotton swabs
2 bibs, rolled
infant tylenol drops
brush & comb set
bottle brush
cupcake pictures printed on glossy paper

I used a "layered" method instead of "rolled" method for my diaper cake. (I waited till the last minute to make the cake, so I needed to save some time).

-Tape the empty rolls together and glue gun/tape them to the cake circle.
-Place the diapers on its side and layer them about 1" apart. Wrap rubber bands around to secure.
-Number of diapers starting from the bottom tier: 40 / 25 / 10 / 5 -Starting from the bottom tier, place tiers on top of the empty rolls and slide down to the base.
-Cut grosgrain ribbon to size of tier and secure with glue gun
-Cut organza ribbon in 20-24" strips
-Tie organza ribbon to the gosgrain ribbon (wherever you want to place your baby item)
-Then tie your baby item with the organza ribbon
-Stick the bottle brush in the top tier
-Tape the cupcake pictures to the grosgrain ribbon (wherever there is an empty space)
-Stuff crinkle shred underneath the bottom tier to hide the cake circle
