1  Re: Diaper Cakes in Baby Showers And Gifts For New Babies by pcolacraftgirl on: September 24, 2005 07:31:21 PM
I made a diaper cake for my sister's baby shower last month and it was a total hit.  Here is the picture:
I've also made one for a baby boy:
I use huggies size 1 diapers and don't use glue or anything to to keep them together.  I just sort of roll up and hold together as many as I can then tie a string around them to hold them together.  I just keep adding the groups together and holding them together with more string.  When it gets big enough, I use baking dishes for molds for each tier.  I eventually cut out any extra string except for the very outside of the layer, and that is hidden beneath the ribbon.  Then I just tuck in lots of goodies like Boudreaux's, J&J baby wash, some pacifiers, and I top is with a soft plush rattle.

Well, the purples match up fine, but after washing there was a decided line through the bottom half where the greens change a slight shade.  Oh well, here goes:
