I made this Pink Angel Diaper Cake for my daughter-in-law's baby shower. I wanted to make this cake special and unique. She wanted lavender colors for the decorations and I wanted pink to indicate it was a baby girl. After shopping around for the perfect decorations, I rolled up 84 diapers and secured with clear rubber bands. This was a tedious task.
The stand was a little hard to locate but when I finally found it the next steps was to make sure that I had a strong base and foundation. The stand was the foundation and I used baby bottles as the base to start the spiral of the cake. After making each tier, I secured the tier with a postage sized rubber band. I placed a lavender lei over the rubber band on the bottom tier. I placed a pink ribbon on the 2nd tier and I placed a pink lace on the top tier. I stuff the cake with trinkets.
I am so proud of my first diaper cake. The joy of doing this project was fantastic.
This cake was prepared especially for an NCSU graduate expecting a baby and was wanting a unique baby shower. The cake is pound cake w/ buttter cream icing (Wilton Recipe) Wolfpack was a image sent by te host and blown up at Staples and printed mirrored. Then I traced the image on wax paper on top of image with butter cream icing while the smooth iced cake was setting in the freezer. After tracing removed cake from freezer and flipped the wax paper on top of the cake to show the outline. I then iced the image changing the color from black and red to pink and red. The diaper cake consisted of 60 Pampers Newborn Swaddlers, three Gerber wash cloths, a pair of pink NCSU baby booties and pink and red ribbon and decor. Finished off with white and red tulle and two pink pacifer favors.
This made a wonderful Baby Shower gift! It was the talk of the party and has lots of useful items tucked all round. I used rubber bands to secure 80 small size diapers. I then used ribbon to make it look pretty around the rubber bands. The are ten baby T-shirts also rolled. Ten bibs and ten wash cloths were also rolled. They are then set onto a round cardboard cake plate with a round baby wipe container in the center or a baby powder bottle and tied with big thick ribbons to secure. Rattles, pacifiers, and toys are then put in between the rolled diapers and a Teddy placed on top! Easy to make, VERY useful and a very fresh fun idea for parties!
My inspiration for this Safari Diaper Cake was the Cloud B Gentle Giraffe which I used as my topper. I made it for my friend who was having a baby boy. I used cross-grain ribbon (brown and giraffe print).
The goodies I used were soothers, 3 face cloths, baby wash, baby lotion, spoons for dowels, and booties. This was the first cake I've made and already have an order for a girls cake. I received lots of compliments on it and it was fun to make!
This Softball Diaper Cake was for a friend that I play softball with, for her new baby girl. I usually put stuffed animals on my diaper cakes, but I decided to try something different. I bought a pack of 182 diapers and made 2 cakes out of them. So this one has about 91 diapers.
