Instructions

  • MAKE THE CAKE STRUCTURE

    Use a hot glue gun to glue the tubes to the cardboard cake rounds. Three tubes for the bottom layer, two tubes for the middle layer and 1 tube on the top layer.

  • ADD THE DIAPERS
    Wrap some of the diapers around the cardboard support tubes and secure in place with rubber bands. For the outer, exposed, layer of diapers, roll each diaper tightly and place around the edge of the cardboard cake round securing the entire cake tier with a large rubber band.

  • ADORN THE CAKE
    Wrap each layer with ribbon making sure to disguise the rubber bands. Add silk flowers or other colorful baby items to adorn the cake. Secure them to the ribbon or under the rubber bands as best you can.

Notes

If you use glue, be careful not to get any glue on the diapers because the baby shower recipient will want to use the diapers after she disassembles the cake.
