So whats super ironic is I posted one of my other diaper cakes on craftster a few years back, why is this ironic you say well that cake was made for the same sister I made these for only her style has changed drastically granted she is having her first girl Cheesy so that may have something to do with it but n e ways Theses are my favorite cakes yet I have made 7 :O lol But these are by far my best after seven I have got this down to a science lol I used only one regular package of size 2 target diapers (my sister's fave) to make all 3 cakes.

- 1 pack size 2 diapers(everyone gets size 1 or NB but mom always waits a month or two before accepting that she has to take it apart eventually and that seems to always be about size 2 time Wink

- 1 roll of tape my fave is the cheapest shiny scotch type tape at Walmart it just holds onto the diapers better

- lots of fab decor ribbons & bows Smiley

Here's a breakdown of what I decorated mine with starting from the left to the right

cake a- on my up-cycled dessert plates (see thread)
Martha Stewart ribbon tape (Michaels clearance $2)
bronze sheer ribbon (hobby lobby $2 for a roll)
tiny cotton lace ribbon (hobby lobby $2 a roll)
green ribbon roses trim (hobby lobby $6 a yard eeek I used coupon and got 40% off always print the website coupons)
Ivory tulle ($1.50 for 25feet roll)
paper blooms ($1.60 clearance hobby lobby)
Topper  (Michaels its like a blue ribbon they have a huge selection but they are on clearance and moving fast $2 each)

Cake B- on vintage cake stand
brown sheer ribbon (hobby Lobby $2 roll)
sheer gold ribbon (hobby lobby $2 roll)
tiny ruffled velvet ribbon (hobby lobby $2 roll)
flowers (estate sale vintage 40s from a trip to Japan sorry but Hobby lobby has nice ones too)
small jars in front of cake (salt and pepper shakers minus lid .20 clearance at Michaels)
topper (michaels see above)

Those are THE prettiest diaper cakes I have ever seen! Most people who attempt these totally look DIY, but these look so professional and amazing!!! Great job!

I have vintage smurf sheets and do embroidery and stenciling...wanna swap?
