Step 1. Things you will need for a beautiful diaper cake:You can get all of these needed baby products baby shower things at a local baby suppliesstore. A craft store usually will contain the needed ribbon.• 40 to 60 diapers depending on how big you want to go. You can use either cloth or disposable diapers - (make sure that the expectant mother likes that brand of diaper). Youcan use either white or decorated patterned diapers.• Colored ribbon, 1/2 or 1 inch wide, that fits with the baby shower theme, baby shower decorations and gender of baby. Pink, blue, or yellow are good choices.• Colored ribbon, 1/4 inch to tie rolled diapers with• 36 to 60 small rubber bands• 6 large rubber bands• One 8-oz baby bottle or one large bottle of baby lotion• One 4-oz baby bottle, baby lotion or baby bath• A cardboard or plastic cake plate or platter • Cake decorations - for example, baby confetti, baby sock roses, artificial roses, etc.•Baby shower gifts- Pacifiers, bottles, lotion, bibs, receiving blankets, miniature stuffedanimals, baby towel, onesie, wash cloths, baby hygiene products, toys, etc.Step 2. Here we go: Let’s build this cake one tier at a time.For the first cake tier, you will need about 30 - 35 newborn or stage 1 baby diapers.Unfold around 15 - 17 of them roll them up tight one at a time. Start from the front of thediaper and roll it to the back. Make it as tight as possible. Place a rubber band around thecenter of each diaper after it has been rolled up tight. These will be the inner diapers for the cake.Take the cake plate and put the larger baby bottle of baby lotion in the center of the plate.Then place about 5 or 6 diapers around the bottle. Then put a large rubberband around theentire ring of diapers to keep them in place. This is the core of your diaper cake.
Next, add a second ring of diapers surrounding the first with the remaining 11 or 12diapers putting them around the first ring of diapers. Place a large rubberband around thesecond ring.You still with me? For the final ring of diapers for the bottom tier you need to take 18 to20 diapers, unfold them and roll them up tight. Now instead of wrapping a rubber bandaround each one, tie a thin, 1/4 inch piece of ribbon around the middle of each one. Then place them around the second ring to form a 3rd ring of the bottom tier of the diaper cake.Finally, take a large, 1/2 to 1 inch wide ribbon and tie it around the entire tier to holdthem all together in a circle shape. This will form as the base for the cake.Just make sure that there are no rubberbands are showing when you are done.All right! on to the next step.Step 3. The second tier is made much the same way, only instead of 3 rings, you will onlymake 2 rings of diapers. Now just like the first tier, the inside ring needs about 5 or 6diapers. Part of the 8-oz bottle will be sticking out of the first tier. You should place your 5-6 diapers around it to form the 1st ring of the 2nd tier. The 2nd ring will need 11 to 12diapers. Place a ribbon around each one of those 2nd ring diapers and hold them alltogether in a circle with the 1/2 to 1 inch wide ribbon.Step 4. The third and final tier is easy!You might want to put this tier together on a table and then place it on the rest of thediaper cake after it is put together. So, take a 4-oz bottle, or the smaller bottle, and place iton a table.Then take 5 to 6 diapers and roll them up tight like before and tie them each with the thinribbon.Then place them around the 4-oz baby bottle and tie your wide ribbon around it to hold ittogether tightly. Now take this tier and place it on the top of the two others tiers you havesitting on the cake platter.That’s it for assembling the diaper cake.Step 5. Now for the fun part, adding the baby goodies:Add little baby items like Pacifiers, bottles, lotion, bibs and burp cloths, receiving blankets,miniature stuffed animals, baby towels, onesies, wash cloths, baby hygiene products, baby toys, and more… You can findspecial baby giftsatwww.ourbabyshower.net. Place them between the folds of the diaper and tuck the larger items into the outer layer of ribbon.
