This was my first attempt at a diaper cake and I think it turned out really well! I wanted to share with you how to make one too!
What you need:
- empty paper towel roll
- 60 diapers (I used size 2 Huggies)
- 3 sizes of rubber bands (thin ones to wrap around diapers, medium and large thick ones for holding the cake together)
Here is my newborn helper Alison showing a newly rolled diaper:
Then start building the base:
You want to build the base by first wrapping 7 diapers around the tube (all diapers have been rolled and secured except for the ones I used inside the tube). Use the thick rubber band to secure to tube. The next layer of the base is 12 diapers, use the meduim thick rubber band to secure:
Here is the back of the cake:
Sorry the pictures are so dark, it's night and our house relies heavily on the California sun for illumination!
