   This is the second time I've made a diaper cake. I usually make homemade gifts for people, but this is for a co-worker and I didn't have a whole lot of time to do it, so I bought some diapers, some baby stuff, and I already had the ribbon. It only cost me about $13 to make, but I think it turned out looking better than the first one I did.

    The roses on the side are washclothes. It's 22 diapers, 3 washcloths, a rattle, a little teething ring toy, a bib, booties, and a onesie.

    I am going to try to start selling them, so having another picture to show people will hopefully help. And maybe after everyone at the suprise baby shower sees it they might want to buy one.  Wink

Comments/suggestions?

Very sweet, and I love the colors you chose!  I know the recipient will be thrilled.

You asked for suggestions - and I do have one.  Have you thought of making your cakes-for-sale shorter, as in maybe two tiers, and thicker?  The tall and skinny shape makes it look less full than it really is.  If it were wider on top, the rosette/washcloths could sort of all go on top as you'd do with an edible cake.

That's a good idea, and I haven't seen anyone do them like that, all the ones I've ever seen have been 3-tier, so I'll have to try that. Next time I do one I'll try a two-tier cake and post my results.  Smiley
Thanks for the suggestion!

You could use other things as well, like receiving blankets and cloth diapers, depending on what the mother is using for diapers.
Washclothes and towels would be a good thing to use for kids just going off to college, too.  I know I had to steal a couple towels from my family when I moved out, it was something I didn't really think about (like pots and pans and dishes...things that just ARE at home, and you don't think about buying/needing)
Hope that helps!
