Purple Diaper Cake

Truly a delight to look at, this Purple Diaper Cake is a striking baby shower centerpiece and a sweet gift for an expectant mommy. It is 3 tiers of purple perfection! The flowers dress it up so much and the ribbon matches perfectly! If I walked into a room with this cake in it, that is the very first thing I would notice and what a treat to look at!

Margie sent us this pretty purple diaper cake from Washington State and are we ever glad she did!

Diaper Cake in Purple for a Baby Girl

This is the very first diaper cake I have ever made and it is for my granddaughter, Julia, who will be born in July of 2009. My son and daughter in law prefer purple over pink so I went with an all purple theme. I used about 65 Pampers size 2, 2 baby bottles, wide ribbon and narrower riboon, silk flowers and bows and lots of rubber bands. I put the bottle (after inverting the nipple and ring and removing the cap) in the center, put a rubber band around it and then inserted the rolled diapers around it. To add additional layers, I added another rubber band. The bottom tier has 3 layers, the middle, two and the top, one. Once the second tier was put in place I added the second baby bottle (stacked on top of the first one) which I left open. I used the open bottle as a vase for the top flowers. Everything except the doll is either secured with double stick tape or just inserted into the openings. I took a couple of stitches to secure the doll to the ribbon. The doll is infant safe and is called My first Doll which I purchased at Walmart. The cake should be fairly easy for my son and daughter in law to take apart and use. This was a lot of fun to make and a lot easier than it looks so give it a try!
