Awww super cute. 
Empty paper towel tubes seem to work the best for me for stabilizing. 

what a good idea!  you could even fill them with surprises too Smiley
thanks for the comments!
2  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Baby Showers And Gifts For New Babies / 1st Baby Shower Cake on: March 07, 2008 08:34:42 PM
My girlfriend and I just made our first diaper cake for her sisters shower.  It turned out really cute and was way easy Smiley  I used a big receiving blanket as the middle and it fit with all 3 layers to make it thick.  I also used chopsticks to make it sturdy (they worked really well). 

We added some ribbon curls...

I tried this last night.  I have a couple mini ramikens that would have worked perfectly in the oven.  However, they seem to have run away from home.  Instead I used an empty tomato paste can.  The first one I did at 450 degrees for 7 minutes.  It looked neat but it melted onto the can.  I cracked it off and tried another at 350 for 4 minutes.  It came out okay - but still not all that cool.  The third one I left in for 5 minutes and tried to shape the edges after taking it out of the oven.  It looks alright but I didn't get the neat bubbles I was hoping for.  I think the problem is with the metal can.  I'm going to try this again as soon as I find a small glass bowl that can go in the oven.

i just did it with a cd and a coffee cup...i put it on 450 and it took about 8 minutes ( i smoked a cigarette and it was done...i used glitter thinking it would melt also but it didn't...this time i'm going to try plastic beads...

thats cool!!! Our school is having western day for homecomming week, and ive been out looking for chaps all day!
how did you make it?

i used a flag pole for the pole and cut the horse head out of cardboard covered with construction paper... i bought movable eyes cuz they were cute Smiley  with the main and the hair under the neck and on the nose i cute diamond spapes out of construction paper and glued each peice of yarn on till it was as full as i liked... the one on the neck is just yarn that i pretty much shaved so it's furry... the mouth was the hard part to figure out cuz the it's 3D so i used pipe cleaners because they'd wrap around...pink and red outlined in brown and black...
it was tedious but so much fun cuz i just threw it together...she's great at telling me about things the day before they are due  Grin
