I wanted to make a very one-of-a-kind diaper cake for my dear friend who is Samoan and her favorite color is red.
I was unable to find a craft store anywhere near where we are (we are stationed in Germany) so I decided to make my own! The flowers were very easy to make, using just tissue paper, wire & tape. I also made them is different sizes and used them all over the room as decorations. And of course some of the guests wore a flower or two in their hair as well.
I used a 72-pack of diapers, and the entire bottom layer is made up of onesies. The onesies not only helped make the cake bigger, but also added more color and made it interesting. Each onesie and each diaper was rolled into rubber-bands, and each cake layer is held together with clear packing tape. The tape was covered up by the ribbon, so the cake was very sturdy and easy to transport.
The very top layer of diapers is surrounding a 14 oz. bottle of baby oil, which is topped with ribbon and a red & pink flower lei bracelet. (I took apart a rainbow colored full-length lei and put it together myself with just the red & pink flowers. Easy-peasy!)
The miniature luau rubber duckies were ordered from Oriental Trading Company. They came in a pack of one dozen and I decided to only use the ones that had the red flowers. (I wanted to stick with the color scheme.)
I found the diaper cake poem online and designed it to match the invitations I made. In sticking with the Samoan theme, I made candy leis as party favors for each guest. The leis also had a thank-you poem attached to them, which matched the design of the invitations as well. Also I made a baby-name banner to match the theme.
