Winnie the Pooh Diaper Cake
Silly old bear! This Winnie the Pooh diaper cake is so cute and so well done! It is loaded with all sorts of Winnie the Pooh accessories and perfect for a baby shower. One of our marvelous readers contributed her Winnie the Pooh diaper cake pictures, along with some fantastic advice and tips. This website is such an amazing source of ideas because of such wonderful visitors who share their creativity. Thanks for such a cute diaper cake!
In her own words:
I started by following the directions on this website, which were very helpful. However, I did tweak it a bit. For the center rows (that are hidden) I rolled the diapers without opening them up. They didn't look as neat, but were much easier to roll. I had worried about not having enough diapers, so I didn't roll them up as tight for the inside rows. I used small, plastic hair bands to hold the diapers, and rubber bands to secure the entire rows.
I used a baby shampoo bottle for the center. After making the first two tiers (size 1 for the bottom, and newborn for the middle), I used a Winnie the Pooh fleece blanket (rolled up) for the top tier. (I used straws to secure the blanket to the middle tier). For the cake topper, I used a cute, cuddly and soft Pooh bear (had to use a chopstick to secure him to the top tier, and to make sure he was sitting up!)
Now came the fun part: decorating! Since the sex of the baby was a surprise, I used neutral baby colors. I purchased several bibs, some onesies, a hat, a small wipe holder, and some toys. I also had a bottle of lotion that I ended up not using for inside the cake. I rolled up the bibs and onesies to be about the same size as the diapers. I then replaced some diapers with the rolled up bibs and onesies to add some color. I placed the toys on the cake using either tape, or tying them with ribbon. I used some yellow polka-dot ribbon for the middle tier, some very cute Winnie the Pooh ribbon for the bottom, and thin, green ribbon to add the decorations, and for some pop of color. I also made the the huge bow out of the Pooh ribbon.
All together, it cost be about $70-$80 to make. I did purchase the bibs and onesies at a thrift store. Everything else was bought at K-mart or Wal-Mart. And to offset some of the cost, some family members donated some money in exchange for signing their names to the card, so they wouldn't have to buy a gift. It only took me about 1 1/2 hours to do the entire thing, from rolling diapers to decorating. The hardest part was shopping around for all the stuff!
I think the cake turned out so great! Every one was very impressed! I had so much fun making it, and can't wait to make another.
