Roll your diapers and assemble like you see on most of the rolled diaper cake instructions. Cut your tissue paper to a bit larger then the top of your tier and hold it snug to the sides with a rubber band pull gently to make sure it forms to the top. fold the tissue paper to the height of the sides and wrap around snuggly and attach the ends together with double stick tape. On this cake I bought ribbon I liked that was pale pink with polka dots (Turns out it sheer and you could still see the rubber bands under the tissue papper.)Still loving the ribbon I did some fast thinking and rummaged threw my craft closet and found some pink crepe paper. I first put the crepe paper around the middle of the tiers and then put the ribbon over that...... and no more rubber bands awesome! The inside has a bath set (towel wash cloths shampooo..... ect. I edged the the tiers with ruffled lace with pink on the edges and topped it with a pink bow that I put a pink duck in the center of curled some ribbon added a pink party favor pacifer and let it drap down the front of the first tier. Wrapped it in Cellophane and closed it with a bow tied from the sheer ribbon. Don't be affraid to think outside of the box when it comes to these cakes ( you can almost never wrong and you can make almost anything look just perfect) Also remember to check out the cake making isle of your craft store for the last few bits of decorations you will be suprised at all the little things that will find that will finish your cake off perfectly.
This was my first time making a diaper cake. I made it for my sister's baby shower. She did my twin nephew's nursery in Winnie The Pooh theme so i matched that theme with the diaper cake. I used 2 different sizes of diapers. the bigger size, 3, for the bottom tier and the smaller size, 2, for the top tiers. You simply roll each diaper and put an elastic around it. Make sure to have the elastic sit right in the middle of each diaper so the ribbon you eventually tie around all of the diapers covers the elastics completely. Once you roll all of the diapers you can start building the bottom tier by just standing up a few diapers in the middle and just keep adding more diapers around until you get the thickness you want for the bottom tier. I had some help from my Mom with this next step. Have one person hold the tier of diapers together while you wrap a piece of ribbon around it and tie it off, securing the whole tier tightly. Be sure to cover all of the elastics on the outer edge with the ribbon. And that's basically it. Just repeat the above for the second and third tiers, using the smaller diapers and less of them to make the overall tier smaller. I secured Pooh on top with 2 elastics, one on each leg, wrapped around a diaper below. Tigger was not secured on. I simply sat him on the edge of the base. The base was just a plastic platter tray lined with mini doilies. I love diaper cakes and plan on doing many more, especially after seeing all of the amazing ones on this website!
