DIY Diaper Cakes


 


Hi y'all!  Today I wanted to share some of the diaper cakes I've made with you!  Making a diaper cake is very easy to do, and it's a really cute way to give an expectant mother something that she can actually USE! 

Materials:

1 bag of size 1 diapers (Make sure they are not the colorful kind)
Ric Rac Trim
Ribbon
Fabric/Felt Scraps
Pins
9in Cake Circle
Baker's Twine
Baby Items (socks, burp clothes, pacifiers,
Empty Paper Towel Roll
Empty Toilet Paper Roll


I've received diaper cakes with tons of tape holding them together, which rendered the diapers useless.  I wanted to make sure that didn't happen to the recipients of these cakes!  I hot glued the paper towel roll and toilet paper roll to the cake round.  I then laid the diapers on their side, almost fanning them out around the roll, creating a circle.  Instead of taping them together, I tied them together with a piece of Baker's Twine. 

 I used the ric rac to resemble frosting. I also made some flowers and rosettes with the scraps of fabric and felt, then pinned them to the diaper cake for some decoration.

This diaper cake was gender neutral as my client's family member was waiting until the birth to find out the sex of the baby!  I used the burp clothes as if they were fondant and completely covered the middle tier with it.  

To finish them off, I used the ribbon and pinned it in place, then added the stuffed animals and pacifiers at the top, securing them with more pins and some Baker's Twine.  I will be making three more of these in the coming weeks!  They are so much fun to make!  I hope I have inspired you today!
