Have you ever heard of a diaper cake? It is rolled up baby diapers put into the shape of a 3 tiered cake. My friend is having a baby shower for her sister this weekend. She asked me if I would make some flowers for her diaper cake that she was getting ready to make. I had never made one before but I was interested in doing it so I asked if I could make it for her.
Here are the things I used.
Two Newborn Diaper packages make one small 3 tiered cake. The ones I saw online were huge, so they must have used a different sized diaper. I used two baby bottles, candy, baby hair ties, rubber bands, ribbon, double-sided tape, 6 skewer sticks, 6 pipe cleaners, 6 korker bows, 2 laced headbands, and 12 Tritzi flowers.
The bottle in the bottom tier is filled with Twix to give it some weight. I rolled the baby diaper and secured it with the hair tie. Then secured the tier with a rubber band. It is really simple. And it didn’t take that long to do. I got all the diapers rolled and put into a cake within one hour.
I placed the ribbon around each tier and secured it with the double-sided tape. I used the korker bows on top since it made a better bouquet. I wrapped the skewer sticks with pipe cleaners. The bows were clipped on the skewer sticks and placed inside the bottle. I put two small headbands on the top tier.
Ta Da! I made my first Tritzi diaper cake!
