How do I make a diaper cake?


Answer by  Craftlady (26)

Start with a flat, round cardboard base, and an extra large shrink wrap bag. Place base inside bottom of bag. Place diapers in a circle around base. Use hair dryer to slightly shrink the bag. Repeat for more layers using less diapers until desired size. Add small baby trinkets to sides for decoration. Shrink completely.

Buy an assortment of diapers in different sized packages, stack beginning with the largest packages of diapers on the bottom decreasing in size as you go up. Decorate with a ribbon wrapping around each layer of cake, add artificial flowers or bows randomly on cake.

Gather disposable diapers tightly into a circle and enclose with wide clear tape to keep the diapers together. Place a stuffed animal on top of the diaper as a decoration theme. Tape assorted baby products around the edges of the cake for decoration and to hide the tape.

You start by making a round teir like in a cake with all of the diapers rolled up. Then you tie a bow around the tier. You will repeat this step twice more each time making each topping teir a bit smaller. After all are stacked you can choose to add in other baby items held in by the ribbon.

Gather groups of diapers and section them off, tying them with ribbon, these will act as layers on your cake. Add other decorations such as more ribbons or rattles.

Take diapers, ribbon, rubber bands and other baby decorations and roll the diapers. Make each tier by using the bands and ribbons to hold together. Keep building!

Purchase a package of newborn diapers and roll up each diaper starting at the top of the diaper, then arrange in a cake shape, taping them together as you go.

There is a mold that you can purchase to make the shape or you can make the shape yourself by stacking two square cakes shapeing and iceing them.
