Shae's Comments:
I was so excited to make a diaper-cake with all of my close friends having babies soon!!!!!!!!I found most/all of what I needed at Wal-mart or Dollar Tree. THIS IS MY FIRST DIAPER CAKE FOR MY FRIEND (that has the same name as me) WHO IS EXPECTING HER FIRST BORN! I used the candlestick method to roll the diapers and secured them with rubber bands. Every layer has rubber bands holding them together and I used craft glue to affix/close the ribbons. I included the following items either outside or inside of the cake:-Stuffed Lion that plays Twinkle Twinkle Little Star as the topper-1 travel size J&J Baby Lotion-1 travel size J&J Baby Powder-1 travel size J&J Baby Shampoo-1 pacifier-4 washcloths-2 pair of Old Navy socks sz. 0-6mos-40-50 newborn size diapers-1 8 oz. bottle filled with purple pink & red jellybeans-1 monkey rattle/teether

I purchased the cake disc, multi-pack of dowels, the different spools of ribbons, and 3-D animal stickers at Wal-Mart. It didn't take me that long because I did it in stages. I rolled allll of my diapers first then I constructed the tiers(the bottom had three circles of diapers, the 2nd had 2, and the top had 1) then I stacked and decorated them. The only thing different is I may decorate them individually and stack them as I finish decorating next time. It was very enjoyable and the mom-to-be loved it, as did the whole shower party!!! ;]
