I had a baby shower to go to for a co-worker so I thought that it would be fun to try a diaper cake.
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.
