The person throwing the shower suggested getting more people in on it because they can get expensive.
She was right!! Baby stuff ain't cheap and diapers can add up. I have no kids and had no clue the cost! So there's one tip there, budget at least $50 for a jazzy, sizable cake.
This is the rough finished project.
I started with the swirl base, really gave me a big bottom to start on.
I used a cut up cereal box as a guide to work out the diapers in.
Then make sure you have some really big elastics to fit. I had to tie mine together.
This is half-way done.
You can't see it but in the middle is a cardboard tube to tie things around.
I started using the roll method to make the others layers.
The ribbon hides the elastic and add the extras and you have a diaper cake.
