Cloth Nappy/Diaper Cake.

I used 3 x 20cm chocolate mud cakes, though, any cake can be used but it must be able to support the fondant. I trimmed the cakes flat and layed them on top of each other. I filled any gaps using fondant. I used about 3kgs in all.

Once the gaps were filled, I covered the cakes with a sugar syrup, though, you can used warm, strained apricot jam. The fondant needs to be rolled out large enough to cover the cake. Once covered, I use my hands to make even indents which represent the nappies sitting on top of each other. Once happy with that I take the blunt side of a butter knife and 'cut' in the "nappy folds" gently.

I brushed the cake over with some lightly beaten egg white and sprinkled desiccated coconut all over, which looks like toweling material.
I tucked some ribbon under the edges and tied off on top.

This baby's sex is a surprise so I went with a funky but neutral ribbon. There are great ribbons available to use. I got 3 meters and trimmed the edges so it wouldn't fray.

My first  Diaper Cake

My first Diaper Cake

I looked online for a few days to try to get ideas on how to make a diaper cake. I found this site by browsing images. Then I compiled tips from various web sites.

I bought a pack of Pampers Size 1 diapers and then assorted baby boy items. I used 2 bottles in the middle of the tiers to make it a little easier to hold the shape.

You will need diapers, rubber bands, thick ribbon to hide the rubber bands at the end, double sided tape, a round cake board or tray or even a round piece of cardboard and then whatever little toys and gifts you want to add. I also bought some bows and these cute little clothes pins with ducks on them to embellish at the end.

It was fun to make and I think the guest of honor will be pleasantly surprised by the diaper cake! I had such a great time creating this and it was fairly easy even for a novice crafter such as myself!

My friend is doing a jungle safari theme for her little boy's room. So I tried to keep it strictly that. Anything that I could find with that certain theme I bought and used for this diaper cake. From the diapers all the way down to the toothbrush.

I used size 2 diapers for the bottom layer. Layers 2,3 & 4 are all used with size 1. I wrapped each diaper individually then made bundles of four with a single diaper wrapped around each one. I then used blankets to wrap the bottom 3 layers and secured the ends together with diaper pins.

The top 3 layers are all built around a bottle bank filled with goodies. I used mint green lace around each layer which I used dressmaker pins to attach it. I also made washcloth lollipops. For the top I just took a hat and covered the diapers with it. This is my first one so I hope you all like it! I had a lot of fun doing it!

For my friend's baby shower I made this diaper cake because I thought it would be cheaper than purchasing one pre-made. I started with 72 size one diapers and rolled them all up tying each with a ribbon. I then bundled those together to form three layers and used cake rounds between each layer. I then wrapped each layer in a receiving blanket.

The roses are actually baby socks that I made into roses with silk leaves wire stems and floral tape. After it was all assembled I topped it with a soft toy and wrapped it in cellophane.
