Diaper Baby Cake


The start of my diaper cake for a baby shower for a little boy. You take pampers......I used size 2 diapers in a box of 94 because the baby grows so fast. These will be nice and if the Mom to Be wants to let the cake sit for a while she can. So, you fan out the diapers inside a cake pan.(Some say this is the preferred method because it less work for the new Mom. No unrolling of rolled up diapers). This is why I chose to go this route. I also think it looks pretty; the fanned diapers are like frosting to me. Pack them tightly and get them to look the way you want paying particular attention the sides and the spacing and then the top to keep it flat. When they are just how you want them, put a heavy duty rubber band around them. You don't have to worry about it showing, because you will decorate with ribbon, or fabric which will cover the bands. You can sneak fun items into the center if you wish. Some people hide a wine bottle for the parents in the layers. Some add other baby items, lotions, soap etc. You eventually take the diapers out of the pan and stack onto a nice board. Then the decorating begins. Use fun colors and make a theme of choice. I will show more of what I am decorating at a later time. Usually a stuffed animal goes on top........but feel free to be creative. This is a creative project and will be appreciated for your own personal flare! :) Let the fun begin!!!!!

Wow it looks awesome and I thought it was a real cake as it is so fluffy and pretty.

We have oodles of the Eurasian Collared Doves here now and we never used to get them at all.
